While marching in a parade with his cub scout troop, Daryl Davis was pelted with rocks and bottles. As a teenager, he was told he would be shipped back to Africa. As an adult, he was attacked by a racist cop. Driven by an intense need to understand those who hate him because of the color of his skin, Daryl Davis, a Grammy Award winning pianist, decided to seek out the roots of racism. Thus began his extraordinary journey into the heart of one of America’s most fanatical and infamous institutions — the Ku Klux Klan.

Daryl Davis chronicles this experience in the book ??Klan-Destine Relationships: A Black Man’s Odyssey in the Ku Klux Klan. He joins us now from his home in Maryland.

Guest:

  • Daryl Davis, Grammy award winning musician and author of ??Klan-Destine Relationships: A Black Man’s Odyssey in the Ku Klux Klan.
