'I really love this' - Jada Pinkett Smith
'What Emmanuel Acho has to say is important' - Matthew McConaughey

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 people are afraid to ask - yet which everyone needs 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 reader's curiosity - but along the way, he will galvanize all of us to join the antiracist fight.
