Taraji P. Henson-Sam Rockwell Civil Rights Drama ‘Best of Enemies’ Bought by STX



“Empire” star Henson portrays Ann Atwater, a civil rights activist in Durham, N.C., who battled KKK leader C.P. Ellis (played by Rockwell) for a decade until 1971, when the two agreed to co-chair a two-week community meeting to deal with a court-ordered school desegregation decree. That event changed both of their lives. 

Robin Bissell is making his directorial debut from his own script.
Inspired by Osha Gray Davidson’s book “The Best of Enemies: Race and Redemption in the New South.”
