I remember first learning about Daryl Davis when I was an Anthropology major in 2005.
I first thought his story might be a PR ploy for the KKK (just like violent biker gangs put together toy drives and other charitable out-of-character work,) and that Mr. Davis was just an unsuspecting victim.
The more I learned about Daryl Davis, the more I realized the KKK actually wants people to think it is for a boost in PR, when they actually really have connected with the man they are supposed to be separated from. This became most apparent to me when I found out that eleven members had left the hate group and gave Davis their robes, all because of their relationship with him.
His story is inspiring- and you can read a good article about him HERE.
