Daryl Davis makes friends with the KKK
Event Description:

Expand Your Circle - Enrich Your LIfe!  

Watch Accidental Courtesy to see how Jazz Musician Daryl Davis makes friends - with the KKK!

Musician Daryl Davis has an unusual hobby. He’s played all over the world with legends like Chuck Berry and Little Richard, but it’s what Daryl does in his free time that sets him apart.

Daryl likes to meet and befriend members of the Ku Klux Klan– something few black men can say. In his travels, he’s collected robes and other artifacts from friends who have left the klan, building a collection piece by piece, story by story, person by person in hopes of eventually opening a “Museum of the Klan”.

In Accidental Courtesy, Daryl’s journey takes him to across the country, from DC to California, Arkansas, Tennessee, Missouri and Alabama, from old friends who have left the klan, to friends still active in the organization, including a current Imperial Wizard of the KKK.   In an age of digital disconnection, Daryl’s method is rooted in personal interaction and we as viewers reap the rewards.
