Event description
Rotary Clubs of Fort Collins Present: "The Peace Initiative Speaker Series" featuring Daryl Davis on race relations in America.

About this Event

As part of its peace initiative, Rotary Clubs of Fort Collins is excited to welcome the first presenter in its Speaker Series, Daryl Davis, a noteworthy author and musician best known for his incredible work on improving race relations in America. Davis can also be seen in the upcoming documentary "American Times".

On April 9th, Davis will present on his own personal experiences with tackling race issues, which have included setting up meetings with Ku Klux Klan leaders and attending rallies to convince members to renounce their racist beliefs. As a black man, endeavors such as these are especially unique and courageous, but his methods have proved successful with numerous Klan members changing their minds and hearts. In addition, Davis has made waves in the entertainment realm as an accomplished musician and actor. His life experiences are chronicled in his book, “Klan-Destine Relationships.”
