It began with a question. How can you hate me when you don't even know me? Listen to our powerful Interview with acclaimed musician, author, educator and race reconciliator, Daryl Davis.
A chance encounter with members of the Ku Klux Klan led musician Daryl Davis on a quest to determine the source of the hate. His unorthodox, yet simple approach, has wielded surprising results and just might be the solution for all racial discourse. As a pianist, vocalist, and guitarist, he performs nationally and internationally with The Daryl Davis Band. He has also worked with such notables as Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley’s Jordanaires, The Legendary Blues Band, and many others. In 1983, A chance occurrence after one of his performances led him to befriend a member of the Ku Klux Klan. This eventually led Daryl to become the first black author to travel the country interviewing KKK leaders and members, all detailed in his book, Klan-Destine Relationships. Today, Daryl owns numerous Klan robes and hoods, given to him by active members who became his friends and renounced the organization. Davis has received the Elliott-Black and MLK awards as well as numerous national awards for his work in race relations. He is also an actor appearing in the critically acclaimed HBO's The Wire, and most recently, as the subject of the documentary Accidental Courtesy, which filmed his real life encounters with Ku Klux Klan and neo-Nazi leaders as he helps to dismantle racism across the United States..

It was created out of the loss of Jesse Klump, a promising high school student who committed suicide and his community's dedication to open this conversation and support those who deserve and need support. Special Guests: Hear our powerful conversation with Chrissy Ehrhart, Vice President and Ronald W. Pilling, Secretary/Treasurer from JESSE KLUMP SUICIDE AWARENESS AND PREVENTION PROGRAM. Our conversation includes: What are the risk factors and warning signs that may cause someone to consider or commit suicide? How can we keep someone safe until help is found? What actions should we take or not take? What is the link between community engagement, altruism and suicide prevention?

HAVE YOU CHECKED OUT THE LATEST Episode OF NO, I KNOW PODCAST?
EPISODE #40: Co-hosts Ilyana Kadushin & James Harrell pow wow with the fantastic couple, Jamie and Michael Leonhart, (PICTURED HERE ON LEFT) who are both professional musicians that have collaborated on music throughout their marriage. We chat about how creativity impacts our relationships, what are the nuances of being creative that we could all cultivate in our relationships and how vulnerability and being present come into play. Special music performances of "Estuary" from Jamie's show "Estuary" and Lythion's "Hussy".
Behind the Scenes:
Jamie and Michael Leonhart are not only good friends but they are musicians that James and I have performed with live in concerts and in the studio. The day of the podcast recording session, they arrived to our studio in West New York, NJ with their son Milo and as usual we start with our tea ritual. Every guest on our show is first invited to sit and share a pot of tea with us so we can relax and just chat before diving into some serious conversations! During the record we had so much fun and Jamie and Michael shared their points of view on how being creative has impacted their marriage. We did not know which song they had prepared to perform for us so it was a surprise and a lovely one! Jamie chose a song from her one-woman show (on how motherhood affected her life as an artist) called Estuary. This song is so beautiful and made me weepy as she sang (with Michael on piano) for us. The electric energy they conjured in our studio that day, felt very familiar to James and I, from our moments of performing music together. We all felt very grateful to have found someone we could share creativity and love with. I hope this episode inspires you to find a new way of connecting to the person you are in a relationship with! Let us know what you ways you are creative with your mate by leaving a comment for us.
