Mark your calendars: Daryl Davis talks about engaging the KKK
African American author Daryl Davis will discuss his work engaging Ku Klux Klan members in conversations about race during an 8 p.m. presentation Wednesday, Nov. 30 in the Phoenix Room of the University Union. “After 134 years of nothing but violence and hatred, it’s time we get to know one another on a social basis, not under a cover of darkness,” says Davis, a Grammy Award winning pianist, describing his extraordinary journey into the heart of one of America’s most fanatical institutions, the KKK. Using music to bridge the seemingly un-crossable gulf between the Klan’s hatred and the Black man’s rage, Davis travels an uncharted road filled with gripping highs and lows. His courageous quest into the heart of ignorance and hatred results, he believes, in a ray of hope for harmony between the races and the future of mankind. Sponsored by Student Life (465-2720).
