Could You Befriend An Enemy?

In a world where people are divided and turn against each other based on differences, defending ourselves and counterattacking might seem natural. But what if that’s not the only way? Darryl Davis, an African-American man, explores the depths of racism. Going beyond sociologic theory, he interviews Klu Klux Klan members and actually befriends some of them.  

He proves that bringing compassion and understanding to those we oppose can deescalate and even disperse antagonism. People’s hearts and minds can slowly evolve toward peace, love and compassion.

Footage of this incredible man daring to do what seems impossible will open your mind and inspire you to see all that we have in common as human beings. Imagine what the world can look like–feel like–when we view each other as companions. Share this video to spread the love!
