10 Black Travelers Who Are Killing It On Instagram

By Shontel Horne


Instagram is in Travel Noire’s DNA. The Travel Noire community was built on social media, and our movement has helped us reach and unite people all over the world with our hashtag, #TravelNoire.


While we continue to inspire followers from every corner of the globe, we also want to show love to the travelers on Instagram that inspire us to always travel a little farther and deeper. These travelers, bloggers and photographers aren’t just doing it for the ‘gram. They’re exploring the world, capturing gorgeous photos and inspiring followers everywhere to pack their bags and go exploring, and they’re doing it one post at a time.
