September 9, 2006. It started as a normal college football game in Neyland Stadium. If anything, the event was an afterthought, dropped into the schedule at the last minute.

For Inky Johnson, though, the game changed everything. A routine tackle turned into a life-threatening injury, and nothing has been normal for Inky ever since. Not with a paralyzed right arm. Not with daily pain. Not with constant physical challenges.

His dream had always been to play professional sports. You might think his injury would have destroyed his motivation and crushed his spirit. But that’s only because you don’t know Inky.

Who is Inquoris “Inky” Johnson? He could be described as the survivor of an underprivileged past. He could be described as a refugee of poverty and violence. He could be described as a success story stained by tragedy. But if you look deeper, you’ll discover something else.

You’ll see a man who looks in the face of defeat and says, “Am I really failing, or is God prevailing?” You’ll see a man gripped by the promise that God has purposes and plans far beyond our own. And you’ll be inspired by his relentless determination, which he loves to impart to others through his dramatic story.

Ink’s injury didn’t turn him into an inspiration. It just showed the world the inspirational life he has been living all along. Executives, professional sports teams, church members and young people all benefit from his raw energy of his charismatic speaking. Whether the topic is leadership, team work or perseverance, Inky inspires his audience. Inky continues to travel the world, bringing inspiration and transforming lives.

Inky has a master’s degree in sports psychology from the University of Tennessee. He is the host of Serendipity with Inky Johnson Podcast. He devotes time to mentoring athletes and underprivileged youth. He and his amazing wife, Allison, live in Atlanta, Georgia with their beautiful children, Jada and Inky Jr.
