Daryl Davis
Musician and Humanitarian


“We are living in space-age times but there are too many of us still thinking in stone age times.” 

Grammy-nominated and multi-music award-winning Rock, Blues & Jazz musician and author, Daryl Davis has hung out with Jerry Lee Lewis, jammed with Chuck Berry, President Bill Clinton and toured extensively with Muddy Waters’ Legendary Blues Band. But the most remarkable thing about the life of the legendary Black musician is his personal crusade against racism.

He has received the distinguished humanitarian Common Ground and Elliott-Black awards among others for his work in race relations and his book Klan-Destine Relationships, in which he became the first Black author to do extensive interviews with leaders and members of the Ku Klux Klan.
