Coleman Hughes believes in the power of conversation to bridge ideological and cultural divides.

Why you should listen

Coleman Hughes created his podcast, Conversations with Coleman, to host radically honest discussions about today's most pressing social and political questions. Specializing in issues related to race, public policy and applied ethics, Hughes is a former fellow of the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research. His upcoming book, The End of Race Politics: Arguments for a Colorblind America, argues in favor of racial color blindness, or as he puts it: "the idea that we should strive to treat people without regard to race, both in our personal lives and in our public policy."

Hughes was named to the Forbes "30 Under 30" in 2021 and has appeared on many TV shows and podcasts, including Real Time with Bill Maher and Making Sense with Sam Harris. His writing has been featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, National Review and more.
