Randall Barnes is a media business visionary and HBCU advocate from Macon, GA. He is an alumni of Fort Valley State University, as he graduated with a degree in Media Studies in December of 2019. During his matriculation at Fort Valley State University, Barnes filled in as a 2017-2018 White House HBCU All-Star Ambassador for the White House Initiative on HBCUs as well as being a member of the SGA Executive Branch as the Director of Alumni Affairs, External Affairs, Marketing, and Communications.
Barnes is most known for pioneering HBCU Pulse, a multimedia company showcasing HBCUs and their student leaders, in December 2017.
Barnes is the writer of multiple books. With my favorite being, “A Queen’s Pain” about HBCU Royal Court life and Student Election Season.
Barnes also shot and directed the “Campaign Season” documentary that can be found on HBCU Pulse’s Youtube channel.
Randall is currently an accounting executive at iHeartMedia Inc and plans to develop HBCU Pulse to be a source for HBCU students to communicate and expand upon their future.
Barnes has always been ready to work as he was also an intern with Aspire TV. Barnes loves to watch basketball during his free time and aspires to be an on air personality. While today is Christmas and the day of exchanging gifts, we must show appreciation to Randall Barnes on his 24th birthday for being a true gift to us all.
Happy Birthday Randall! Thank you for all that you’ve done.
