Taraji P. Henson Stars in Civil Rights Drama ‘The Best of Enemies’

The Best of Enemies, Taraji P. Henson

Taraji P. Henson stars alongside Sam Rockwell in The Best of Enemies, a drama about the desegregation of schools in Durham, North Carolina in 1971.

The film is based on a true story of the unlikely bond between Ann Atwater (Henson), a civil rights activist, and C.P. Ellis (Rockwell), a local Ku Klux Klan leader. The pair were co-chairs of a community summit in the summer of ’71 after an elementary school for Black children burned down.

“Same God made you made me,” Henson’s character declares in the trailer.

The Best of Enemies opens in theaters April 2019.
