Episode 30 – Daryl Davis

On this episode, we speak with Daryl Davis, accomplished musician, and author of Klan-Destine Relationships.  In his pursuit to discover how anyone could hate him without knowing him, Daryl built relationships with Ku Klux Klan members. Some of the members who have come to know Daryl have since changed their world view and left the Klan. Daryl tells us about his experience and what friendship means to him.
