Summary, etc. note: "Don Lemon, host of the Don Lemon Show on prime time CNN every weeknight, is more popular than ever. As America's only Black prime-time anchor, his daily monologues on racism and antiracism, on the failures of the Trump administration, and on America's systemic flaws, speak for his millions of fans. Now, in an urgent, deeply personal, riveting plea, he shows us all how deep our problems lie, and what we can do to heal them. Blending letters to his Black and White nephews with reporting and reflections on his slave ancestors, his upbringing in the shadows of segregation, and his adult confrontations with politicians, activists, and scholars, Lemon offers a searing and poetic letter to America. He visits the slave port where a direct ancestor was shackled and shipped to America. He recalls a slave uprising in Louisiana, just a few miles from his birthplace. And he takes us to the heart of the 2020 protests in New York City. As he writes to his young nephews: we must resist racism every single day. We must resist it with love"--
