The Best of Enemies is about civil rights activist Ann Atwater and the segregationist turned activist named C.P. Ellis. The film takes place during a pivotal moment in society; North Carolina’s decision to integrate black and white schools. This movie sets out to tell the realistic truths of this incredibly difficult time for so many. While getting rid of segregation was seen as a huge win for America, many racist southerners felt the opposite. People were not welcomed into their schools, and tons of controversy ensued.
C.P. Ellis was born and raised on the poor west side of Durham, North Carolina, and as a young man, he joined the Ku Klux Klan seeking a sense of brotherhood and belonging. Eventually, he changed his ways and realized that his views were due to his racist upbringing. He then spent the rest of his life as a civil rights activist, meeting plenty of influential people like Ann Atwater along the way.
