Lecturer Daryl Davis

Daryl Davis visited the Arlington Career Center in February. “Why do you hate me when you know nothing about me?” That question launched American R&B and blues musician Daryl Davis on a radical and sometimes dangerous mission to forge friendships in some of the most unlikely places. Mr. Davis’ energetic boogie-woogie piano put him on stage with Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, Bruce Hornsby and Bill Clinton, just to name a few.  And his unconventional approach to racial reconciliation put him across the table from a Klansman.  What happened next?  Daryl Davis bought his story live to students and staff at the Arlington Career Center.
