Don Lemon brings his vast audience and experience as a reporter and a Black man to today''s most urgent question: How can we end racism in America in our lifetimes?<BR <BR The host of CNN Tonight with Don Lemon is more popular than ever. As America''s only Black prime-time anchor, Lemon and his daily monologues on racism and antiracism, on the failures of the Trump administration and of so many of our leaders, 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 begin to fix them.<BR <BR Beginning with a letter to one of his Black nephews, he proceeds with reporting and reflections on his slave ancestors, his upbringing in the shadows of segregation, and his adult confrontations with politicians, activists, and scholars.
