Evita Turquoise Robinson            

Host, Creator of NOMADNESS Travel Tribe & Keynote Speaker

Evita Turquoise Robinson created the NOMADNESS Travel Tribe, an online social community primarily for travelers of color in 2011. NOMADNESS was the first of its kind targeting black and brown millennials, in the newly coined 'black travel movement'. The group currently surpasses 25,000 international members, with over thirty regional Ambassadors. In 2018, NOMADNESS Travel Tribe hosted their first festival for black and brown travelers, AUDACITY Fest. The physical festival has taken place in Oakland and Memphis, and in 2020 pivoted into a quarterly, highly curated online experience.

The success of the online community has garnered a lot of media attention and led to a partnership with Issa Rae on the NOMADNESS web series. Robinson’s accolades include National Geographic’s 21 Most Visionary Women Throughout Travel History, AFAR Travel Vanguard Award recipient, The Root 100, and being noted as one of Entrepreneur Magazine’s 50 Most Daring Entrepreneurs of 2018.

She works as a Contributing Editor of CondeNast Traveler Magazine, keynote speaker, media personality, TED Resident, consultant for Destination Marketing Organizations, and continues her love of seeing the world while writing her first book and developing her own travel television series.
