Social Justice Book Club: Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man by Emmanuel Acho (BPL Virtual Program)

Tuesday, February 27, 2024

Our book club title for Black History Month will be Uncomfortable Conversations With a Black Man by Emmanuel Acho. Here, Acho takes on all the questions, large and small, insensitive and taboo, many white Americans are afraid to ask, yet which all Americans need the answers to. 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 antiracist fight. Pick up a copy at the library or listen to it on the Hoopla app.
