EBONY and Discover Boating are bringing the stories of Black families to life with The Coolest Black Family! This summer, we will feature four families who share their unique perspectives on travel and life on the water and give us a snapshot of Black family coolness.

Tune in as we highlight each family and learn about their boating lifestyle.

Discover Boating celebrates life on, in, and under the water. We’re here to welcome you to the water with tips and advice on everything you need to launch your boating adventures—from choosing and buying a boat to owning and operating to gear and accessories—from education and safety to living the boating lifestyle. Learn more at DiscoverBoating.com and @DiscoverBoating on InstagramFacebook, and Twitter.
