This film was a New York Times Critics pick and has won recognition from many independent film festivals. This documentary follows African-American musician Daryl Davis, who has played backup for Chuck Berry. Davis is an example for anyone interested in promoting peace and understanding -- he goes out of his way to cultivate cordial relationships with well-known racists. The film documents his efforts to get to know leaders from the Ku Klux Klan and neo-Nazi groups. In forming these relationships, he attempts to further mutual understanding and steer them away from their racist attitudes.
