Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man by Emmanuel Acho

I love this book.

I have read a number of books on racism and diversity issues. Most have been spectacular works on the underlying, complex realities that infiltrate our broken society. But what makes this book stand out above the rest is its simplicity. You don’t need an advanced degree to approach this book. You don’t need a deep understanding of race relations to engage in this conversation.

All you need is the willingness to listen and learn.

Emmanuel Acho makes these “uncomfortable” conversations engaging and accessible.

When I was younger, I was definitely more close-minded. Younger me certainly would have jumped on the “all lives matter” bandwagon. Luckily, I have learned. I have listened. I have asked questions. And today, I am a more informed person. I still have a lot to learn, but that’s the point. Learning is about the journey.

Coming in at around 200 pages, this book clearly only scratches the surface of some difficult topics but it is a great book. I highly suggest it to anyon
