About Best of Enemies:
The Best of Enemies will tell the story of 2 major civil rights activitists (Ann Atwater and C.P. Ellis) at a prominent point in their lives North Carolinas decision to integrate black and white schools. History often has a darker side, especially when dealing with history in the south, and this film will respectfully bring that darkness into the light as we deal with the issue of racism. C.P. Ellis was born and raised on the poor west side of Durham, North Carolina, and as a young man, he joined the Ku Klux Klan seeking a sense of brotherhood and belonging. That being said, we are looking for background actors who are comfortable portraying C.P.s fellow Klansmen in 1971.
