    Uncomfortable Conversations With A Black Man

    Acho, Emmanuel

    "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. Acho takes on all the questions, large and small, insensitive and taboo, that many white Americans 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 provides a space of compassion and understanding in a discussion that can lack both. He asks only for the readers curiosity - but along the way, he will galvanize all of us to join the antiracist fight. (NoveList)
