Episode Notes

About Kevin Hofmann:

Accomplished writer and public speaker Kevin Hofmann has appeared across the United States sharing his experience and guiding parents, students and professionals through today’s multicultural landscape. His perspective and light-hearted yet contemplative view resonates with people of all cultures and is sought by many. Kevin has been interviewed by media including Nightline ABC and NPR and is quickly becoming a trusted voice on the topics of race and adoption.

Kevin’s layered racial resume has led him to write Growing Up Black in White, a compelling memoir revealing his difficulties and joys growing up in a diverse family –particularly during a time and in a location where acceptance was tentative and emotions regarding race ran high and hot. Because his story also addresses the impact of race and culture in society, it serves as a catalyst for open discussions on diversity and inclusion as well as race and culture. Kevin has worked with several K-12 school districts, universities, and adoption agencies as a consultant in the area of cultural intelligence.

Hofmann lives with his wife and two sons in Toledo Ohio..
