T. Barnes, CEO T. Barnes Global Lifestyle

T. Barnes. Solana’s Mama. Global Lifestyle Entrepreneur. Lover of Black People. Pan-Africanist. Humanitarian. Esthetician. Thinker. Speaker. Educator. Global Citizen.

T. Barnes defies being put into any one box by creating a life that incorporates her full humanity. Although she runs several businesses in beauty, fashion and travel, she has a solid academic grounding with a Bachelor’s from NYU in Sociology, a Master’s in History from Western CT State University and a second Master’s in Teaching for Social Justice from Marlboro College. This fusion of creative, academic and business has afforded Barnes a life spent studying, traveling and building global enterprise, while serving as a bridge between the African Diaspora and the world; actively providing global experiences that help Black people imagine themselves beyond the periphery and limitations of race and geography.

She is currently the owner of T. Barnes Global Lifestyle, the Founder of the Black Freedom Colony and now, she serves as Partner, General Manager and Creative Director of Sbai Palace in M’Hamid, Morocco.
