Interview with Devin C. Hughes, Speaker, Coach: Chief Inspiration Officer...

Devin speaks at schools, universities, corporations, associations, and organizations in a wide variety of disciplines to help others access their potential for change.

Recently, he's published Contrast: A Biracial Man's Journey to Desgregate His Past...   In 1967, the Supreme Court legalized interracial marriage in America. Devin Hughes was born two years later to a black father and white mother who fled to Washington DC to escape the racism of the Deep South. Bigotry still ran rampant up North, and light-skinned, greeneyed Devin felt its pull from both ends and he found himself more consumed with his dysfunctional family life.  Despite his parents’ flaws, they were Devin’s greatest believers. From his dad founding a neighborhood baseball team to his mom advocating for him in school, they taught Devin that anything imaginable was within reach, that their mistakes needn’t be his choices, and that his destiny was for greatness. Ultimately,  "Contrast" isn’t a book about race; it’s a book about acceptance, perseverance, and love.
