Accidental Courtesy: Daryl Davis, Race & America

Career musician Daryl Davis has made it his life's mission to build bridges by befriending KKK members—and since 1990, has collected tons of Klan memorabilia, including 20-odd Klan robes and hoods. See, befriending Davis, a Black man, has shaken some of them—including former imperial wizard Roger Kelly and former grand dragon/gubernatorial candidate Scott Shepherd—to the point that they've left and renounced the movement. Davis's story is compelling, and if it influences the unsure within that movement, young or old, then great. [But] his message will likely be lost on anybody who doesn't believe in explaining themselves to, as dream hampton put it, "people who are committed to misunderstanding" them.
