An Instant New York Times Bestseller

“You cannot fix a problem you do not know you have.” So begins Emmanuel Acho in his guide to the truths Americans need to know to address the systemic racism that has electrified protests.

“There is a fix,” Acho says. “But in order to access it, we’re going to have to have some uncomfortable conversations.” Acho takes on all the questions many white Americans are afraid to ask ― yet which all Americans need the answers to. 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.


Customer Reviews

“The author delivers exactly what he promises in the title, tackling difficult topics with the depth of an engaged cultural thinker and the style of an experienced wordsmith. Throughout, Acho is a friendly guide, seeking to sow understanding even if it means risking just a little discord.”
