CALVERT COUNTY CHAMBER of COMMERCE

The Calvert Chamber, Southern Maryland Minority Chamber, and Calvert County Public Schools Present:
Speaker, Author, and Musician Daryl Davis on March 30th from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Patuxent High School, 12485 Southern Connector Blvd., Lusby, MD. This event is sponsored by Dominion Cove Point LNG.

As an author, Daryl's nonfiction book, Klan-Destine Relationships, provides a first-person account of an African American man’s journey into the mindset of the Ku Klux Klan. His true-life stories of meeting with Klan leaders, and attending Klan rallies are both suspenseful and revelatory. The book outlines Daryl’s efforts to bridge stark racial divides through friendship and engagement. It also served as inspiration for a new film documentary released in 2016 called Accidental Courtesy.
Today, Daryl travels the country giving inspiring lectures based on his experiences. His efforts in the area of race relations have earned national coverage from NBC News, USA Today, Business Insider, National Geographic, and many others.

Please join us for an evening of thoughtful discussion and musical performance by Daryl Davis. Admission is free and the event is open to the public. However, please register your attendance with the Calvert Chamber at www.calvertchamber.org.
