"Acho’s gregariously pragmatic delivery educates with clarity and makes the book come alive." -- Booklist

This program is read by the author, and includes a bonus conversation.

An urgent primer on race and racism, from the host of the viral hit video series
Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man”

“You cannot fix a problem you do not know you have.” So begins Emmanuel Acho in his essential guide to the truths Americans need to know to address the systemic racism that has recently electrified protests in all fifty states. “There is a fix,” Acho says. “But in order to access it, we’re going to have to have some uncomfortable conversations.”

In Uncomfortable Conversations With a Black Man, Acho takes on all the questions, large and small, insensitive and taboo, many white Americans are afraid to ask—yet which all Americans need the answers to, now more than ever. With the same open-hearted generosity that has made his video series a phenomenon, Acho explains the vital core of such fraught concepts as white privilege, cultural appropriation, and “reverse racism.” In his own words, he provides a space of compassion and understanding in a discussion that can lack both. He asks only for the listener’s curiosity—but along the way, he will galvanize all of us to join the antiracist fight.

Amazing first step into anti-racism!

This book is such an amazing first step towards anti racism! It brings up a lot of questions white people, such as myself, are too afraid to ask. It follows a simple structure that’s easy to follow. I absolutely loved this book! So important for white people to read.
