What Don Lemon Says to His Friends About Racism

For seven years, Don Lemon has doubled and tripled the audience of his nightly CNN news show with his signature amalgam of straight news, incisive commentary and often intense interviews that never stop at the surface of a story.

But his willingness to reveal himself as a person, rather than just a talking head, as he did in his candid memoir, Transparent, has won him an even greater legion of fans.

In his new book, This Is the Fire: What I Say to My Friends about Racism, Lemon turns again to the personal, tackling the critical issue of race in a compelling blend of letters to his Black and white nephews, reflecting on his own experiences as a Black man and reporting from the heart of the 2020 NYC Black Lives Matter protests. He joins The Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center to deliver an urgent plea for the nation to confront the depth of our problems as he lays out his map for a way forward.

In conversation with Brooke Baldwin.
