Welcome to BlackAtlas
Celebrating African-American Community and Travel
BlackAtlas was created as a platform to bring together and share the unique cultural perspectives of the African-American community in a meaningful and relevant way.
As a leading global airline, we strive to highlight the cultures and diverse communities from around the world, giving us a broader understanding of each other.
During the month of February, American pays special tribute to Black History Month by featuring modern and historical iconic black films in our inflight entertainment selection. Films such as “12 Years a Slave,” “42” and “Lee Daniels’ The Butler” showcase strong messages of hope and perseverance that resonate deeply.
Celebrating Black Film
As American pays tribute to remarkable African-American films, we continue our tradition by supporting the American Black Film Festival (ABFF). We invite you to enter for a chance to win two (2) passes to the ABFF in New York City, June 19-22, 2014, with hotel accommodations provided by Marriott and airfare courtesy of American Airlines.
