Daryl Davis’ energetic Boogie-woogie piano put him on stage with Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, Bruce Hornsby and Bill Clinton, just to name a few. Davis’ unconventional approach to racial reconciliation put him across the table from a Klansman. What happened next? Davis, appearing on CNN, PBS and NBC, shares his unforgettable stories of forging understanding in some of the most unlikely places. Come hear him live and learn how his approach caused several Klan members to walk away from those beliefs.

“There is no substitute for hearing Davis tell the story in his own words.” –The Atlantic, 2015.

The 2017 edition of the Clarendon-Courthouse Mardi Gras Parade and Ball is shaping up to be a great parade. The Parade starts 7:00 PM at Wilson Blvd and N. Barton Street, and moves up Wilson Boulevard, past Liberty Tavern to end on N. Irving Street. If the weather is nice, thousands of people will gather along the route to watch the Parade and try to catch candy and throws from the Parade participants. We’ll have dogs and horses and floats and decorated vehicles and music and dancers and marching groups…it’s a Clarendon tradition.
