An engaging children's book inspired by Emmanuel Acho’s viral video series "Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man."
Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Boy is an accessible book for children to learn about systemic racism and racist behavior. For the awkward questions white and other non-black parents don’t know how to answer, this book will help support communication on dismantling racism amongst our youngest generation.
Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Boy creates a safe, judgment-free space for curious children to voice questions they’ve long been afraid to ask. How can I have white privilege if I’m not wealthy? If Black people can say the n-word, why can’t I? And many, many more.
This book is one way young readers can begin to short circuit racism within their own lives and communities.“Quick Talks.” Suggested resources. References.
