A “Lil Positivity”: San Francisco 49ers Vernon Davis And Business Partner Antone Barnes Are Changing Perceptions, Changing The Game, And Empowering The Black Community

 

Two very successful and focused Black men, doin’ in good in Hollywood and the ‘hood.

Some of you may be familiar with Vernon Davis, the star tight end for the San Francisco 49ers. He is a beast on the field, strong and fast with a great knack for finding the end zone once the ball hits his hands.

You may not be as familiar with Antone Barnes, but that will soon change. Antone, a former record executive, has worked with the likes of Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, and Nelly, helping them to bring their musical visions to fruition.

These two brothas have joined their creative minds to form an interior design company called Modern Class Design. Additionally, Vernon and his Miami Dolphin brother Vontae, have put their resources together to establish the Vernon and Vontae Davis Family Foundation. Both of these businesses are focused on leadership and community both in the the business and social arenas.

Bossip was afforded the pleasure of speaking to the unlikely tag-team to get their take on what it means to be at the forefront of their field and what MCD and VVFF really stands for.
