Daryl Davis (born March 26, 1958) is an American R&B and blues musician, activist, author, actor and bandleader.[1] Known for his energetic style of boogie-woogie piano,[1] Davis has played with such musicians as Chuck Berry,[1][2] Jerry Lee Lewis, B. B. King,[2] Bruce Hornsby, and Bill Clinton.[3][4] His efforts to improve race relations, in which as an African-American he engaged with members of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK), have been reported on by media such as CNN, NPR, and The Washington Post.[5][6][7][8] Davis summed up his advice as: "Establish dialogue. When two enemies are talking, they're not fighting."[9]

Davis is a Christian and has used his religious beliefs to convince Klansmen to leave and denounce the KKK.[10]
