Speaker to Present 'Klan-Destine Relationships' at Penn State DuBois

Speaker to Present 'Klan-Destine Relationships'
at Penn State DuBois

DuBOIS – Author and speaker Daryl Davis is scheduled present his program Klan-Destine Relationships, and provide an overview of his book by the same name, at Penn State DuBois. His work delves deep into the Ku Klux Klan, and provides a real and up-close look at racism in America.

An African-American male, Davis says he has, "come in closer contact with members of the Ku Klux Klan than most white non-members and certainly most blacks, short of being on the wrong end of a rope." He also continues to do so, making him one of the most unique lecturers on the college speaking circuit today.

Over the last ten years, Davis has done such things as set up surprise meetings with Klan leaders unaware of his skin color, and attended KKK rallies, all on a quest to do nothing more than explore racism and gather information for his book. Through it all, Davis eventually became the recipient of robes and hoods from Klan members who came to him to rescind their beliefs, and inadvertently stumbled upon a successful method of forming friendships between sworn enemies.

Davis' program is set for 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, February 1, in the Hiller Auditorium at Penn State DuBois. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, call the Office of Student Life at 814-375-4764, or visit http://www.ds.psu.edu/StudentLife

He should interview Obama and Al Sharpton. Oh, that's right, they are black so by that standard they cannot be racist. This should be a nice presentation for young liberals in training.
