Description


This program is read by the author.

An engaging children's audiobook whose aim is opening a dialogue about systemic racism, inspired by Emmanuel Acho’s viral video series "Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man."


Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Boy
is an accessible audiobook for children to learn about systemic racism and racist behavior. For the awkward questions white and non-black parents don’t know how to answer, this audiobook is an essential guide to help support communication on how to dismantle racism amongst our youngest generation.

Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Boy creates a safe, judgment-free space for curious children to ask questions they’ve long been afraid to verbalize. How can I have white privilege if I’m not wealthy? Why do Black people protest against the police? If Black people can say the N-word, why can’t I? And many, many more.

Young people have the power to affect sweeping change, and the key to mending the racial divide in America lies in giving them the tools to ask honest questions and take in the difficult answers. Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Boy is just one way young listeners can begin to short circuit racism within their own lives and communities.

A Macmillan Audio production from Roaring Brook Press
