Traveling can be a wonderful experience. However, you can easily miss out on the joy of it when you don’t know where or how to travel. When you want to enjoy your vacations to the fullest, turn to Noire Escapes, a two-time award-winning Black-owned travel company that helps people travel the world.
Founder Anita started the agency to promote travel among Black people, especially to places deemed “not for Black people.” She will never forget discussing her travels when someone said, “Oh, you’re going to Colorado? Black people don’t go to Colorado.”
“There was just something about that statement that bothered me, because Black people travel everywhere,” Anita explained.
About the Owner
Anita started in the travel industry as a blogger with her Travel is D’new Black blog, where she documented her national and international trips and shared traveling tips.
In 2018, Anita went to an industry conference and met the host. They discussed her blog and extensive travels over brunch. By the end of brunch, the host asked if Anita would plan a trip for them. Anita was a little intimidated by the request, but that got her to seriously consider starting a travel business.
At the same time, Anita’s friends and family were constantly reaching out for hotel and destination recommendations. This made her realize that she may be good at this. So in 2019 she launched Noire Escapes.
Right now the brand is promoting the 2023 Jamaica Escape and you won’t want to miss out. The 2022 Jamaica Escape has already sold out so you know this is an experience you can’t skip out on.
Anita believes that a vacation is a form of self-care, especially in a culture that prioritizes work over wellness. In 2019, over 700 million days of PTO went unused in the United States. Anita wants people – especially Black people – to take their PTO and travel.
“So, please take your PTO – those jobs will figure it out, don’t feel guilty about taking a vacation,” Anita emphasized.
Some of Anita’s travel picks for Black people include Colorado, Utah, and the western U.S. for domestic travel; and Florence, Italy for international travel.
