To Our Readers

Earlier This Year, The Christian Science Monitor ran a story with the headline "Black Man's Unlikely Odyssey Tempers KKK Racism" (Feb. 26, 1998). It told of Daryl Davis and his efforts with a number of Ku Klux Klan leaders to find a way toward racial reconciliation. Mr. Davis has met personally with Klan members and has brought with him an honest desire to understand who they are and their point of view. He was quoted: "While you are actively learning about someone else, you are passively teaching them about yourself."

One Klan leader has since asked Davis to be godfather to one of his children. At least eleven others have left the Klan. The Monitor story observes that "... Davis says these face-to-face encounters ... are the only thing that will break through hate and fear."
