Daryl Davis is an accomplished musician who has played all over the world with legends like Jerry Lee Lewis and Chuck Berry. He also has an unusual and controversial hobby: Daryl likes to meet and befriend members of the KKK, many of whom have never met a black person. When some of these same people decide to leave the Klan, Daryl keeps their robes and hoods — building his collection piece by piece, story by story, person by person. But when he meets Black Lives Matter activists he finds not everyone approves of his methods of racial reconciliation. Accidental Courtesy captures Daryl as he attempts to answer his lifelong pursuit of the question, “How can you hate me when you don’t even know me?”
