Nomadness is a pioneer of the Black travel movement. It started as a web series back in 2011, when founder Evie Robbie began documenting her travels via YouTube after a year and a half of globetrotting.
Since then, her project has evolved into a multi-platform community of more than 15,000 members with over 100,000 passport stamps. In addition to the NomadnessTV web series, they host a yearly travel conference, workshops and events, and group trips through the Nomadness Travel Tribe.
"Founded by Kevin Knight, Urban Events Global is a travel company of professional, African-American adventure seekers. Our travelers enjoy experiencing all that life has to offer through various group travel events, networking, and meeting like-minded individuals with an appetite for fun and exploration."
"Cherae Robinson started the company to change the often-negative perceptions of the continent. Her former NGO job frequently led her to African countries, but her journeys were often met with fear and skepticism from those at home. But upon seeing people’s positive interest in response to the photos and stories she brought back with her, she saw an opportunity to transform the narrative by inviting people to experience some of the lesser known aspects of African life. Soon after, the Tastemakers brand was born, and it has since grown into a global community with offices around the world."
"Travel Noire is a stylish, sophisticated Black travel group geared towards young professionals. Founder and CEO Zim Ugochukwu created the community as a space for people of color to share and bond over experiences abroad. Three years later, the Forbes 30 Under 30 entrepreneur sold her thriving business to Blavity, Inc. to help scale the ability for unconventional travelers to learn and grow."
