The story of Ann Atwater, a civil rights activist & CP Ellis, a KKK leader, who come together to co-chair a community summit in 1971 to desegregate schools in Durham, NC.  In the process, the two became good friends.

This amazing story has now been turned into a movie starring Taraji P Henson as Ann Atwater and Sam Rockwell as C.P. Ellis.
