Derek Black is the son of a KKK grand wizard and godson of David Duke. And when he met Matthew Stevenson, an Orthodox Jew, in college, the two seemed like an unlikely pair. They join host Krys Boyd to talk about the time Matthew invited Derek to attend a Shabbat dinner – and how that interaction paved the way to a new understanding. They’ll talk more about the experience tonight as part of the Funk Family Upstander Speaker Series at the Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum.
We’d heard Derek Black, the former white-power heir apparent, interviewed before about his past, but never about the college friendships that changed him. After Derek’s ideology was outed at the New College of Florida, Matthew Stevenson (one of the only Orthodox Jews on campus) invited him to Shabbat dinner. What happened next is a roadmap for navigating some of the hardest and most important territory of our time.Matthew Stevenson was born and raised in South Florida.

He holds an MBA from Columbia Business School and currently works as an investment analyst at T. Rowe Price.Derek Black is a PhD student in history at the University of Chicago, where he’s examining how the legacy of the medieval European worldview influenced the development of ideas about race in the early-modern Atlantic.
