Today’s review is for Uncomfortable Conversations With a Black Man by Emmanuel Acho.
If you haven’t watched Emmanuel’s video series of the same name as the book, I highly suggest you do. Uncomfortable Conversations With a Black Man is a book that you need to take your time reading, so you can fully digest the information. While a lot is unpacked, the book is very readable and accessible, meaning that young adults could read this book. There is a lot of important history that I never knew. Uncomfortable Conversations With a Black Man touches on the importance of language, context, and origins. The book also discusses enslavement, how racism is a virus, white privilege, implicit bias, and how reverse racism doesn’t exist. I learned so much from reading Uncomfortable Conversations With a Black Man, it’s such an important book that needs to be read.
