A chance encounter with members of the Ku Klux Klan led black musician Daryl Davis on a quest to determine the source of the hate. His unorthodox, yet simple approach, has wielded surprising results and just might be the solution for all racial discourse. Daryl Davis graduated from Howard University with a degree in Jazz. As a pianist, vocalist, and guitarist, he performs nationally and internationally with The Daryl Davis Band. He has also worked with such notables as Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley’s Jordanaires, The Legendary Blues Band, and many others. In 1983, A chance occurrence after one of his performances led him to befriend a member of the Ku Klux Klan. This eventually led Daryl to become the first black author to travel the country interviewing KKK leaders and members, all detailed in his book, Klan-Destine Relationships. Today, Daryl owns numerous Klan robes and hoods, given to him by active members who became his friends and renounced the organization. Since his journey began, Davis has joined an all-white country band, attended KKK rallies, and accepted a “certificate of friendship” from the Traditionalist American Knights of the KKK. He’s even the godfather of former Klan Imperial Wizard Roger Kelly’s granddaughter. Davis has received the Elliott-Black and MLK awards as well as numerous other local and national awards for his work in race relations, and is often sought by media outlets as a consultant on the KKK and race relations. He is also an actor with stage and screen credits, appearing in the critically acclaimed HBO police drama, The Wire, and most recently, as the subject of the documentary Accidental Courtesy, which filmed his real life encounters with Ku Klux Klan and neo-Nazi leaders as he helps to dismantle racism across the United States Davis has received the Elliott-Black and MLK awards as well as numerous other local and national awards for his work in race relations, and is often sought by media outlets as a consultant on the KKK and race relations.

No matter what your beliefs are, your religion, your race and skin colour, your culture and your traditions... It all comes to down to respect and understanding! And these 2 things are missing all over the world!

One of the few talks that I really enjoyed. Too many people are just busy padding themselves on the back to accelerate their careers.

Wanna end racism and the KKK? Confront the founders of the KKK, the Democrats. They still spread hate everyday.

We are all individuals there are over 8 billion races out there. No two of us are the same. Racism is now a tool of division. Because, Power can only divide us in order to consolidate it's strength.

What a brave man, Mr. Davis. I believe in one race, the human race. As a follower of Jesus Christ, I pray that members of the KKK will read the Bible with open eyes and recognize that all races are related and that in Christ all the divisions between people are irrelevant (Galatians 3:28). May they become true followers of Jesus and what lover your neighbor means.

Notice that he made his own rather rare decisions after having experienced racism before having "learnt" about it. His journey started without bias, but with curiosity. It is my conclusion that his parents did him a great service. Inspiring actions. RESPECT.

+Jaime _ I do not agree with this man in video.I do not think racism has anything to do with fear.Hate yes,but not fear.
Jaime _ (6 дней назад)
But the thing is that the fear of racism is different. 'We suffer more often in imagination than in reality'. better love each other than hate:)

His message is so powerful! Unfortunately, I think nowadays when 2 disagree people have a conversation. They more likely tried to prove their own point, instead of listening or learning others perspective.
