EVITA ROBINSON’S NOMADNESS TRAVEL TRIBE IS A MAJOR PLAYER IN THE BLACK TRAVEL MOVEMENT. HERE, SHE REFLECTS ON HER JOURNEY AND TEAM BUILDING

Marquita K. Harris

By the time Evita Robinson turned 30, she had already visited 30 countries. By contrast, only 42 percent of Americans own a passport. For some, travel is still viewed as a luxury reserved for a privileged few. But for Robinson and those who are a part of her Nomadness Travel Tribe, jet-setting is a way of life.

Launched in 2011, Nomadness is a virtual community for travelers of color that targets millennials. It was also a harbinger of the Black travel movement, a period marked by an uptick in international travel among Black folks. Whether it takes you to Mozambique or Banff, Canada, Nomadness’s travel packages are curated for those determined to get out of their comfort zone and forge lasting bonds with fellow travelers.
