Accidental Courtesy: Daryl Davis, Race & America
Clarke Ahlers met Daryl Davis sitting at a Blues jam in Bowie, Maryland in honor of my late neighbor, friend, and accomplished Blues musician Mike Baker. As we shared the table and talked, I realized this man (“Daryl”) knew music like no one I had ever met. My brother Mike walked in and I tried to introduce him to Daryl. It turned out Mike and Daryl already knew each other; Mike had been covering the guy as a journalist for years. “This is the guy I told you about who befriends Ku Klux Klan members and gets them to denounce the KKK.” To watch this classic award-winning documentary, search Amazon Prime. I guarantee you it will inspire!
