Chicago blues musician Daryl Davis claims to have convinced 25 members of the Ku Klux Klan to leave the racist organization with little more than friendly conversation.
But, as seen in the new documentary Accidental Courtesy, which made its world premier at SXSW festival this week, he doesn’t have quite the same rapport with some members of the Black Lives Matter movement.
The film follows Davis and his associates – some of whom appear clothed in KKK robes and hats – as he talks about his mission to win over entrenched racists. ‘I try to bring out the humanity in people,’ he told The Daily Beast on Wednesday. ‘We all are human beings at the end of the day.’
