Organizers: Munich Dialogues on Democracy Speakers Series, a co-operation with Amerika Institut (LMU) and the Amerikahaus.
Daryl Davis will talk about his experiences as the first African-American author traveling the U.S. to interview KKK leaders and members. Opening remarks will be made by Bartley Grosserichter, head of Munich Dialogues for Democracy and Dr. Bärbel Harju of the Amerika-Institut (LMU) will serve as moderator.
Daryl Davis is a musician, actor, author, and lecturer. He earned his BA in Music from Howard University and is an accomplished Blues, Rock'n'Roll, Country, and Jazz musician, touring regularly with his Daryl Davis Band. He has worked extensively with Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley’s Jordanaires, The Legendary Blues Band, and Percy Sledge, among others.
After a performance, 35 years ago, a man told Daryl Davis he had never seen an African-American man play piano like Jerry Lee Lewis. The man was a member of the Ku Klux Klan and he became a regular fan of Daryl’s. This led to Davis becoming the first African-American author to travel the country interviewing KKK leaders and members, all detailed in his book, Klan-Destine Relationships. This tour made him one of the unique race relations experts and activists today. He eventually became the recipient of robes and hoods from Klan members who came to rescind their beliefs after coming to know him.
Davis has appeared in the critically acclaimed TV show The Wire, as well as in many plays and movie roles. He is the subject of the recent documentary Accidental Courtesy, which followed him around the U.S. documenting his meetings with KKK members, neo-Nazis, the Alt-Right movement, and other white supremacists.
This event is part of the Speakers Series "Munich Dialogues on Democracy", a cooperation between The Yale Club of Germany e.V. (Munich Chapter) and the Amerikahaus - Bavarian Center for Transatlantic Relations. This lecture is being made possible by a generous donation from the MIS Foundation.
