Devon Alexander was born and raised in the Northwest suburban area of Chicago, Illinois. Given his lived experience of race within American society and the American educational system, it’s fitting that Devon grew up in the suburban Chicagoland area immortalized in John Hughes films like Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, The Breakfast Club, and Sixteen Candles. Devon came of age as a young male of color in a social and cultural environment that was a tempest of racial dissonance.
