A new movie about Daryl Davis, a black man who converts KKK members
Daryl Davis is a black man who befriends KKK members, starting from a premise of trying to understand how people can hate him without knowing him, and also meeting people where they are.

He's got about 30 KKK robes which were given to him by people who left the KKK.

There's been a book by him for a while, but now there's a movie, available on the PBS site until 2/28.

Do *not* watch it at Film Lush, they're scammers.

Wow, that's amazing and redemptive--thanks for the link. I may look up the book.

ETA: but it's really hard to watch in places. Hard to hear people saying the things that the KKK and Nazis say. It's really hard to face that stuff.
