About soul society 101 AND FOUNDER, RONDEL HOLDER

In 2012 Rondel Holder began on his quest to see the world but quickly realized that there were no travel reviews or stories from the perspective of the Black traveler, so he began sharing his travels on social media. It wasn’t long before he realized that like him, Black people across the U.S. and the world were craving travel content and guidance from someone that looked just like them. Under the moniker, Soul Society 101, Rondel began creating a voice for the under-served Black traveler, providing the opportunity to be seen and heard on his website and social media. Since then, Soul Society 101 has developed into Soul Society 101 - The Podcast and video content including his docu-series, HERITAGE JOURNEY, where Rondel Holder is tracing his roots in Africa and Global Royalty, a travel concierge company where Rondel curates personalized trips to Africa for Black people in America.


Featured in publications such as the New York Times, New York Daily News, Black Enterprise, BET and more, Rondel has now visited over 60 countries and continues to push the culture, engaging daily with his reach of over 100,000 Black travel and culture enthusiasts, and striving to create more opportunities for Young Black Professionals & Creatives to positively impact the world as global citizens.
