Uncomfortable Conversations with Emmanuel Acho

Yoga Girl: Conversations From The Heart - December 4, 2020 - 40:03

Today’s episode may be uncomfortable, but it is a conversation we need to have again and again. Joining us on the show is Emmanuel Acho, former NFL linebacker, Fox Sports analyst, and New York Times bestselling author.After the death of George Floyd, Emmanuel found himself mourning, unsure what to do with his grief. After sitting down for some hard conversations with his white friends, he was inspired to launch a video series: Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man. Seen by millions of people across the world, the series continues to educate and spark conversations around the uncomfortable and crucial topic of race.Join the conversation as Emmanuel shares the lightbulb moment that began his journey, how he questioned his own Blackness growing up in a predominantly white culture, his take on white privilege and how to use it to help others, spirituality and race, implicit bias and more. Guilt and avoidance will not end racial inequality - only love can do this. The way to truly love others is to listen to them, to put ourselves in their shoes, and to acknowledge the struggles, injustices and harm they face. Tune in to find strength and hope, and to walk the path toward a world that is more equitable, kind and loving for all.
