Waterstones Says

Drawing from his phenomenally successful video series Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man, Acho’s book is a pivotal and timely companion to the urgently needed discussions about racism.

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.

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

What Emmanuel Acho has to say is important. It has made me think, and I hope that more people read this and that it will get them thinking. He answers the questions - the why of things - that will hopefully lead, in the future, to the how we move forward -- Matthew McConaughey
Emmanuel is a voice we need right now. I admire and appreciate the way he tackles complex issues with great empathy, care and introspection. He understands that every good conversation starts with listening, and I believe the work he is doing is critical -- Roger Goodell, NFL Commissioner
