THIS IS THE FIRE What I Say to My Friends About Racism

by | Read by Don Lemon

Contemporary Culture • 4.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Much like his popular CNN show, Don Lemon's new audiobook is well researched, thoughtful, and passionate. The book includes a collection of personal stories and observations mixed with a detailed history of racism and analysis of current events. Of particular note are Lemon's reflections on his visit to Africa with his mother to trace his family's ancestry. His emotional recollections set a powerful tone for the content that follows. Lemon outlines how our country got where it is today and includes a heartfelt appeal to resist racism to help heal our nation. Lemon also emphasizes the need to consider all voices and ideas, not just those we agree with, if we want to create lasting change. K.S.M. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2021]
