If you ask my guest to define his personality he will quickly tell you StefIsDOPE (Driven On Positive Energy). Stefan Grant used that positive energy to turn a dangerous misunderstanding into a visionary business idea. Join Gerald and Stef as they discuss the danger of traveling while black, building Noirbnb as a safe travel marketplace for people of color, and the importance of taking action to solve problems facing the black community.
