Amplifying Black Voices: Emmanuel Acho

Posted by Suzanne Bernet on

Emmanuel Acho is a former National Football League player who recently began a series of conversations about racial justice called Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man. He says, “Racism is not a virus of the body; it is a virus of the mind, and unfortunately, it can be lethal. You cannot fix a problem that you do not know you have. And if ‘ignorance is bliss,’ in this case, bliss has caused bondage and pain for others.

But there is a fix. We can all access the life-saving medicine that will cure the world’s most ailing, long-lasting pandemic. But in order to access it, we’re going to have to have some uncomfortable conversations.”
