As a teenager, a member of the Ku Klux Klan told Daryl Davis that he would be shipped back to Africa. Over twenty years later, Davis can still feel the terror of that experience. Motivated by an intese need to understand such an extreme form of racism, he began to compile information on the infamous organization. Since then, Davis has set his sights on forming relationships with Klan members to get to the heart of their hate.
In this candid and provocative book, Davis shares the high and low points of an extraordinary journey. At one moment Davis is standing with a black woman whose lawn is being scorched by a burning cross and the next he is discussing race relations with the Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan.
Davis, a popular musician who has jammed with the likes of Chuck Berry, uses music as a bridge between cultures. With rare courage, Davis exposes his own anger, along with his compassion, in his attempt to unearth the roots of prejuice and foster harmony between the races.
