Ann Atwater with C. P. Ellis

Free screening of movie based on the novel by the 2020 Great Southern Writer Osha Davidson.  A timely drama that centers on an unlikely relationship between Ann Atwater (Taraji P. Henson), an outspoken civil rights activist, and C.P. Ellis (Sam Rockwell), a local Ku Klux Klan leader who reluctantly co-chaired a community summit, battling over the desegregation of schools in Durham, North Carolina during the racially-charged summer of 1971.  The incredible events that unfolded would change Durham and the lives of Atwater and Ellis forever.
