In the video serving as a leadup to the MLK Day broadcast of Urban One Honors, Ms. Hughes shares how she became a teenaged mother and what it meant for her to push through the doubts and barriers that she faced as a Black woman and single parent to bring her vision for Radio One into reality.

As Ms. Hughes artfully states in the opening of the video below, “don’t let anyone talk you out of what God destined you to do.”

Amen to that.
