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
