Taraji P. Henson stars alongside Sam Rockwell in The Best of Enemies, a drama in regards to the desegregation of faculties in Durham, North Carolina in 1971.
The movie is predicated on a real story of the unlikely bond between Ann Atwater (Henson), a civil rights activist, and C.P. Ellis (Rockwell), an area Ku Klux Klan chief. The pair have been co-chairs of a neighborhood summit in the summer season of ’71 after an elementary faculty for Black kids burned down.
“Identical God made you made me,” Henson’s character declares in the trailer.
The Best of Enemies opens in theaters April 2019.
