Taraji P. Henson has teamed up with actor Sam Rockwell to star in The Best of Enemies, the true life story of an unexpected relationship between civil rights activist Ann Atwater (Henson) and local Ku Klux Klan leader C.P. Ellis(Rockwell).
Shadow And Act reports, “the film is set in the 1960s and early 1970s during the debate about public school integration in Durham, North Carolina. Their encounters were charged with hatred and suspicion. But eventually, in an amazing set of transformations, each came to see how the other had been exploited by the South’s rigid power structure, and they would form a friendship that flourished within an explosively bigoted environment at the time.”
