Devin Hughes
Motivational Speaker and Author Tells Story in New Memoir

Devin C. Hughes is an award winning speaker and best selling author. The son of a black father and white mother, Devin grew up in a mixed—and mixed up—world. His home life was chaotic, riddled with his parents’ drug use and unconventional ways of educating; dyslexia made academic learning a seemingly insurmountable challenge; and his identity was beyond confusing—was he black because he felt black or white because he looked white?
Despite his determination to get to college, however, he scraped through the next four years by doing the bare minimum. Realizing how many doors he had closed for himself was crushing. The day he graduated, he knew he had to change. His book and comic book are for those who feel alone, isolated and disconnected from friends and family.
