I just bought two physical copies of these amazing movies with the sole intention of dissemination within my social circles. I personally feel that the subjects of these films and the way they live exemplify what it means to be a healthy, loving, and socially conscious human being. *And after you see what these men have done, I think you'll agree.
So if you have any interest in borrowing either, please hit me up. *Also, Accidental Courtesy is currently streaming Netflix, and both can be rented on iTunes and other platforms.
Much love, friends, and thank you Fred and Daryl for choosing to love and serve.

Tonight I got to meet the one and only Daryl Davis!!!! Not only does he play a hot piano as a "boogie-woogie" musician, he has also shown himself to be a great human being by showing friendship to some of his race's greatest enemies: members of the Ku Klux Klan!! This truly amazing and inspiring man came to LIU Post to discuss his documentary "Accidental Courtesy" and his book "Klan-destine Relationships". He has shown us how through compassion, understanding, empathy, and the simple act of listening, we can break down even the toughest-seeming barriers between us as human beings. I feel honored to have met, talked to, and hugged this incredible human being!! Thank you so much for coming tonight, Daryl Davis, and please keep being the awesome person you are!!!! 😊👍👍🏻👍🏼👍🏽👍🏾👍🏿🎹 #DarylDavis#AccidentalCourtesy#KlandestineRelationships#DarylDavisMusician#AmazingPerson#DarylDavisLIUPost#ThankYouDarylDavis#IncredibleHumanBeing

@TheDailyBeast follows up with a full circle take of the film, especially with the disconnect between Daryl Davis and @BlkLivesMatter in their different approaches to dealing with the racial tensions in the US.
A must read from @jenyamato @TheDailyBeast for its 360 view of the each side. These are the types of conversations that the film means to invoke. While the film is only the starting point, these honest conversations are continued by those like Daryl Davis, @BlkLivesMatter activists like @kwamerose, and the gambit of groups dedicated to making a change in the racial situation in America.

@accidentalcourtesy follows Daryl Davis on his quest to befriend members of the KKK in order to promote peace and combat hate. I can’t wait to catch this documentary at the @globalpeacefest in Winter Park, FL this week. #rosaliafilms#gpff18#accidentalcourtesy
Have y'all seen this man's Netflix documentary? You gotta check it out! It's called Accidentally Courtesy.
This man has done some extremely controversial work to befriend KKK members. Over 200 have turned in their robes and have said it was because this man became their friend. #AccidentalCourtesy
Appreciation post: Daryl Davis
He,a black man, has inspired over 200 members of the KKK to leave the organization over the past 30yrs. Not by force or threats but by listening. Maybe we should listen instead of shouting at one another? 🤔
#accidentalcourtesy https://onmogul.com/stories/accidental-courtesy How to defeat #Hate be it based on #Faith , #Ethnicity , #Gender , #Country , #Class , #Geography , #SkinColor , and so on. Hate is hate no matter who is flinging it at people, a #bigot is a bigot period therefore one can not combat hate with hate, disrespect with disrespect, nor violence with violence. One can never "prove their point" by pushing buttons narcissistically superiority so, yelling, screaming, calling irrelevant names, using no sense at all, and or acting like a dumb @$$ in general. Some thrive in chaos, if and when the chaos ends then what is their identity. Chaos has become their addiction and identity. Without it they have nothing are nothing.

this documentary is so important.
for those who only want to argue with those who disagree — WATCH THIS. it shows you why you should LISTEN and UNDERSTAND them instead of simply telling them they’re wrong. Daryl Davis has literally convinced KKK members to quit. with WORDS. by SHOWING THAT HE UNDERSTANDS. you do not have to throw people aside just because they have different opinions. i am so sick of trying to discuss with people who get aggressive, people who can’t do anything but throw around their many opinions rather than listen, people who simply tell me i’m wrong rather than calmly explain what they mean.
MUY IMPORTANTE. WATCH. IT’S ON NETFLIX.
Daryl Davis tells Fusion's Kim Brooks why forming relationships with white supremacists has lead to a greater understanding of race in America. Davis is an accomplished blues and rock n' roll piano player but it's his unorthodox work exploring the issue of race that turns heads these days. Davis not only attends KKK rallies, he's welcomed. | Watch full video on blackjunction.tv (Link in bio) #whitesupremacy#kkk#daryldavis#accidentalcourtesy
If you haven’t seen this documentary, it’s one to watch. Accidental courtesy, shows that one change a small portion of events and in total of these acts will be written the history of each generation. #accidentalcourtesy#daryldavis#makechangehappen
In #accidentalcourtesy Daryl Davis points out how many people coming to see the Lincoln Memorial walk right past or right over this block which memorializes the spot that Martin Luther King Jr. stood to make his famous “I Have A Dream” speech. I watched while we were there, and while some people did stop and look or take a picture, most did walk by, not even realizing it was there. Also, I highly recommend that documentary. Daryl is putting action to MLK Jr’s words of “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
I haven't watched too many documentaries, but when I heard what this one is about, I just had to.
*Daryl Davis, a blues musician, befriends members of the KKK and eventually changes their hearts - and usually they end up leaving the Klan resulting in the congregation disassembling. 'He kills them with kindness'.*
I highly recommend it
Daryl Davis with Jerry Lee Lewis. Daryl is the subject of the AMAZING documentary Accidental Courtesy (on Netflix) and will be speaking about grace&race at our upcoming event in DC (10/27-28). Could not possibly be more jazzed. Just posted the reasons why on Mbird.com #daryldavis#mbirdDC17#accidentalcourtesy
Provocative, educational, emotional and inspirational, Daryl Davis may incur wrath from both sides but at least he is starting a conversation. The ability to change one person's ideology of hate is to inspire hope for future generations. The most important question he's ever asked... "How can you hate me, when you don't even know me?" This documentary was well worth the watch. #accidentalcourtesy#preachlovenothate#equality#love#courage#compassion
The man has convinced 200 Klansmen to leave the KKK simply by befriending them.
We're not perfect, we're not the same, we don't have to agree on everything, but we can build bridges, we can be good neighbors. (#AccidentalCourtesy can be viewed on Netlfix)
I’ve posted about him before on my personal Facebook page, but in light of current events, I want to draw your attention to him again. This is Daryl Davis. He is a blues piano player, known for his energetic style. He has played with B.B. King, Muddy Waters, and Chuck Berry. But what is extraordinary about him is his friendship with members of the KKK, and his ability to convince them to denounce the Klan.
In his own words, “Establish dialogue. When two enemies are talking, they're not fighting." If you’re interested in learning more about him, there is a 2016 biopic documentary called Accidental Courtesy. It’s available on Netflix.
No puedo dejar de recomendar un docu que me ha impresionado mucho... "#AccidentalCourtesy : #DarylDavis , Race & America". Daryl Davis es un hombre negro de reconocida trayectoria musical, ha tocado con leyendas como Chuck Berry o Little Richard, que desde 1983 se reúne con miembros del Ku Klux Klan para simplemente hablar, intercambiar opiniones, y así conocerse mejor e intentar entender por qué su interlocutor lo considera su enemigo, a menudo terminando estos insólitos encuentros con un apretón de manos. ¿Resultado? A lo largo de los años varias decenas de personas, que ahora son sus amigos, han abandonado la organización, entre ellas miembros destacados del KKK. Esto me ha hecho pensar en lo poderosa que es una buena comunicación para resolver conflictos desde la educación, y lo peligrosa que es la ignorancia (o el miedo a lo que no se conoce), porque crea odio, y el odio violencia, y la violencia venganza, una rueda muy difícil de detener. Por otro lado es desconcertante ver que en esta era de la comunicación, de las redes sociales, la gente cada vez tenga menos capacidad para dialogar con personas que no piensan como ellos sin pasar automáticamente a la crispación más cegadora, a la ofensa instantánea y violenta, saltándose cualquier posible intercambio enriquecedor de ideas que en ocasiones podría acercar hasta las posturas más alejadas y evitar muchos problemas por el camino. Y tal vez es porque quizás las RRSS no sean el canal ideal para comunicarnos, porque nos perdemos toda la información que nos da la comunicación facial, porque no escuchamos lo que el interlocutor nos transmite con el tono de su voz, o porque cada vez estamos menos interesados en escuchar a los demás y más preocupados por atender a nuestro ego, y ya nadie lee entre líneas, y se nos escapan las figuras retóricas, y ya no entendemos de juegos de palabras ni de analizar los contextos, y sólo somos capaces de interpretar desde la más plana y absurda literalidad. Ojalá volvieran las tertulias en los cafés, los debates enriquecedores en sobremesas pausadas. A mí me gustaría parecerme a Daryl Davis.
