Change through kindness: Why a black musician befriends the KKK

African-American musician Daryl Davis has made it his life’s mission to become friends with KKK members. He says it’s the best way to change them, but some black activists think it’s the wrong approach. Davis is the subject of the documentary “Accidental Courtesy,” which airs February 13 on PBS.
