New York Times best-selling author and host, Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man and Fox Sports analyst, Emmanuel Acho will virtually join United Cardmembers for a moderated conversation and a hosted live Q&A. Emmanuel’s web series turned book, Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man, is focused on driving an open, difficult, but ultimately productive conversation on race in America. Emmanuel will share stories of his career as an NFL player and a broadcast analyst, as well as his journey to develop the series and book. Cardmembers will have the opportunity to ask questions during a hosted live Q&A (questions may be limited based on timing). Award-winning sports reporter Pam Oliver will moderate the evening, including the Cardmember Q&A.  

Cardmembers will receive a gift box with a signed copy of Emmanuel Acho’s book Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man, one leather bookmark, four leather travel cord wraps, one travel blanket and a sweet treat (a combined value over $100).

Emmanuel Acho is a Fox Sports analyst and co-host of FS1’s Speak for Yourself and host/producer/author of Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man. The book, released in partnership with Oprah Winfrey, debuted at #3 on the New York Times best sellers list.

After earning his undergraduate degree in sports management in 2012, Emmanuel was drafted by Cleveland, then traded to Philadelphia in 2013. During the NFL off-seasons, Emmanuel earned his master’s degree in Sports Psychology. In 2016, Emmanuel left the football field and picked up the microphone to begin his broadcast career. At ESPN, he served as the youngest national football analyst and was named to the 2018 Forbes 30 Under 30 sports list.

Since joining the NFL on FOX in 1995, Pam Oliver has established herself as one of the premier sports reporters on network television. As senior correspondent, Oliver currently contributes feature stories and sideline reports for FOX NFL, FOX NFL SUNDAY and FS1. As an African American woman reporting from the sidelines, Oliver is a trailblazer in sports reporting.
