Based on his viral video series of the same name, Acho takes difficult questions about racism, unpacks the history, and breaks them down, then ends each chapter with suggestions for solutions or resources to “Talk It, Walk It”.  He speaks directly to white people on topics such as white privilege, cultural appropriation, and interracial families, meeting discomfort with blunt honesty, wit, and pragmatism.  He has also authored a companion book, “Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Boy”, directed at a younger audience and their parents.
