INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

‘An absolute must-read . . . Emmanuel Acho dives into important subjects like cultural appropriation and white privilege, urging you to find a way to join in the fight against racism’ – Cosmopolitan

An urgent primer on race and racism, from Emmanuel Acho, an American Football Legend and host of the viral hit video series Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man.


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 of the same name 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 anti-racist fight.

Jada Pinkett Smith

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
