Changing the Klan One Member at a Time
Musician Daryl Davis has been meeting face-to-face with white supremacists for over 25 years to challenge their racist views.
It isn't easy sitting down with someone who hates you.
“People say ‘I can never do this, I’m too afraid to be around those people’ or ‘I would get too angry, I wouldn’t be able to control my temper, but I appreciate what you’re doing.’”
Davis admits controlling his temper can be difficult at times. Sometimes he even fears for his safety. But after decades of experience, he’s learned the secret to having these tough discussions.
“The greatest weapon I have is information,” says Davis...
...According to Davis, engaging with those whose values are completely opposite of your own is an invaluable experience.
“When you are actively learning about someone else, you may not realize it, but at the same time you are passively teaching them about yourself,” says Davis.
It’s this philosophy that drives Davis to seek out these conversations.
“When two enemies are talking, they’re not fighting. They might be yelling and screaming and disagreeing, but at least they’re talking.”
SXU at the Beverly Arts Walk
Saturday, October 7th
As part of the annual Beverly Art Walk SXU faculty and students will be exhibiting some of their artwork. There will be a roundtable discussion of race- and gender-related issues raised by their work. A couple of the pieces to be discussed were made in response to what happened in Charlottesville.
If you can't make it for the discussion but still want to see the artwork, come to the Beverly Arts Center any time between noon and 7pm that day.
The Beverly Arts Center is located at 2407 W 111th Street, Chicago, IL, 60655.

In the 1990s, Johnny Holmes was head of security at a high school in Blue Island, Ill., when he met Christian Picciolini, a teenage student who was the leader of a local neo-Nazi group.
"I put you through hell," 43-year-old Picciolini said to Holmes during a recent visit to StoryCorps. It was the first time in 18 years the two had sat down with each other to talk. "I mean there were fights, there were words that we had those years that I was there."
Holmes, who is 71 and a school board member now, agreed, describing Picciolini as rough at the time.
Saint Xavier University (SXU) is pleased to announce the Art and Design Department’s upcoming annual participation in the Beverly Art Walk. Since it was established four years ago, SXU students have been given the chance to showcase their work to a larger part of the community. This year’s Beverly Art Walk is scheduled for Saturday, October 7 from noon to 7 p.m. It is a free event and open to the public.
The recurring presence began in 2013, when Associate Professor Nathan Peck became the chair of the Art and Design Department. He felt it was a great opportunity to expand the students’ audience while simultaneously preparing them to show their work. In recent years, the space provided to SXU has grown from a small 10 feet on a wall to room for 40,000 square feet worth of craft. Some of the categories include: painting, photography, film, dance, music, potters, sculptors and performers. Students, alumni, faculty and staff are all welcome to participate in the art walk.
