The host of CNN Tonight with Don Lemon 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 of so many of our leaders, and on America’s systemic flaws speak for his millions of fans. Lemon was the leading voice on CNN guiding viewers through the death of George Floyd and a summer of nationwide protests and riots. Viewers relied on his nightly coverage to guide them through a global pandemic. Now, in his new book, This Is the Fire: What I Say to My Friends About Racism, 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.
