Description

Hailed as one of the greatest Blues, Boogie Woogie and Rock ’n Roll pianists of all time, Daryl has performed and shared stages with legendary greats such as Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley, Dave Brubeck, Willie Nelson, Aretha Franklin and so many more.  But music is only one of his passions.  As a black man, Daryl has made it his life’s mission to find out how people could hate him simply because of the color of his skin.  Going directly to the source, he asked KKK members that exact question and opened up dialogues with those whom many would consider his mortal enemies.   After years of conversations, and with absolutely no agenda other than to understand where this mindset comes from, over 200 members of the Ku Klux Klan have denounced the KKK and many have even handed Daryl their robes and hoods as a symbol of friendship. Armand and Doug asked Daryl to dig even deeper and share with us how we all can be soldiers of civility.
