In the You-Tube video series, Uncomfortable Conversations With a Black Man, Emmanuel Acho takes on all the questions, large and small, insensitive and “incorrect” many white Americans are afraid to ask—yet which all Americans need the answers to, now more than ever.
A former NFL player shares his take on American race relations. Emmanuel Acho, grew up in Dallas as the son of Nigerian immigrants, addresses white viewers who have sent him questions about Black history and culture.
During our Zoom meeting, we will watch one 10 minute episode in the series of episodes, created by Acho followed by small group discussions. This episode looks at questions like: How can I have white privilege if I grew up poor? How is being an anti-racist different from not being racist? What is, “Cancel Culture”? This will be a very safe space for everyone who joins.
We will try to keep our gathering to one hour. The content/language is not appropriate for young children.
