In this episode of Black Businesses Matter, I get to interview my first ever duo on this podcast, Jessica E. Boyd + Steven M. Hughes, co-founders of Journey Black Home. This power couple sits down with me and discusses their journey in sharing the black experience of travel. They explain how they started. They go into the importance of culture through traveling. We also talk about how they travel and the black experience within each visit. Steven notes about giving back to the community and the facts of where we should be putting our money to help build a legacy and a better community.  We also dig into the AirBnb culture specifically for black travelers and the importance of black Airbnb hosts to help amplify our voice.  Lastly, we get to hear what brings Jessica and Steven joy.
