RV road-tripper shares travel tips for Black families

Kay Apkan got a bad feeling from the RV park her family pulled into in Galveston, Texas.

Having traveled across the country full-time since 2020, the Apkans were used to being the only Black people in some places, but this time felt different.

“It felt very intimidating,” she said, recalling the “funny stares” they got as Confederate flags flew from RVs and golf carts nearby. 

She worried about her son Aiden, who likes to go exploring on his bike.

“In a place like that … what if he rides somewhere and somebody looked at him and thinks that he said something or did something, then decided to take matters into their own hands?” Apkan said, fearing “an Emmett Till situation.”
