Synopsis

"What terms are acceptable now to refer to black people and why has that changed over time?"

"If the N word is such a bad word, why do my black friends use it all the time?"

"How has systemic racism gotten so out of hand and how did it start?"



In Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Boy former American football player Emmanuel Acho addresses the awkward questions white and other non-black people have been afraid to ask and don't know how to answer. Drawing from his own experiences, Emmanuel creates a safe space for curious young people and their parents to find answers to difficult questions about race and racism. This essential book will help support readers to dismantle racism and be the drivers of change in their own lives, schools and communities.
