Living Gandhi and King Today

Daryl Davis is a dynamic speaker, internationally known musician, actor and author. He will share his experience in transcending racial and cultural barriers around the world and how he successfully applied this approach where it is needed now more than ever, right in his own country.

A number of Klan members, after coming to know this black man, voluntarily left the KKK, giving him their robes & hoods.

Daryl Davis provides a living example of how to engage with an adversary through non-violent dialogue as pioneered by Mahatma Gandhi and Rev. Martin Luther King.

Daryl Davis is the author of the book Klan-Destine Relationships

Mr. Davis will give a talk and will play the piano after the talk.
