This 2019 film starring Taraji P. Henson and Sam Rockwell is based on the true story in Durham, NC of the encounter between the Grand Wizard of the Ku Kux Klan, C. P. Ellis, and black activist Ann Atwater. While co-chairing a series of meetings on school desegregation, the two found their preconceptions about each other challenged – and they grew to be lifelong friends.
