#BlackVanLife

Tested Podcast logo

Host Rebecca Martinez speaks with Durham artist Marcella Zibguo Camara about her decision to get in on the #BlackVanlife movement.

There’s a romance inherent in the idea of paring down one’s earthly possessions and hitting the road, with only one’s imagination (and one’s vehicle) to limit them. The nomadic lifestyle is attracting a cross-section of Americans, including young Black people disillusioned with an inaccessible housing market and the grind it takes to stay in it.

Rebecca Martinez produces podcasts at WUNC. She’s been at the station since 2013, when she produced Morning Edition and reported for newscasts and radio features. Rebecca also serves on WUNC’s Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Accountability (IDEA) Committee.
