What Is Soul Society 101? The premiere travel, food and culture blog curated for Young Black Professionals. Soul Society 101 queues suggestions on travel destinations, social and adventure-seeking activities, restaurant, bar and nightlife suggestions, and food and cocktail recipes – from the cool perspective of a Young Black Professional who is social and eager to experience the world!
The Mission: To alleviate the fear and frustration of traveling, of not being able to find reviews that match your POV. To encourage people to live life to the max and experience different cultures and expand their minds. At root, Creator of Soul Society 101, Rondel Holder, hopes that the blog will improve the quality of lifestyle within Black communities by developing a platform that both entertains and informs our people, with our particular interests, in our own voice. Through travel, we embrace cultures which destroys ignorance. Through food we build relationships and communion, which fosters peace and understanding.
