Presented by Holocaust Memorial Resource and Education Center at Holocaust Memorial Resource and Education Center, Maitland FL

Ongoing
NEW EXHIBIT: Uprooting Prejudice: Conversations for Change

“How can you hate me when you don’t even know me?” The question became a conversation starter and life changer for Davis after an encounter with a KKK member in the 1980’s.

Uprooting Prejudice: Conversations for Change opens September 28, 2021, and will focus on the hope-filled activism of Daryl Davis. As a legendary blues musician, he devoted his life not only to the power of music, but also to the power of peace building via courageous and thoughtful dialogue.

Over the course of many years, Daryl bravely befriended members of the Ku Klux Klan. His persistent and deep conversations with white supremacists led to over 200 individuals leaving the white nationalist movement — with many of them giving their robes to Daryl.

The amazing stories of Daryl’s activism will be displayed for the first time in our Museum. This exhibit will show the history and culture of hate and injustice. It will also highlight the power we have as a community to become activists and to create cultures of equity, respect and compassion.

We will examine words, symbols and tools of hate and more importantly, impactful stories that prove that change can happen. Daryl viewed every conversation as an opportunity to plant a new seed. The exhibit ends by posing the question: “What new seed will you plant?”
