We are very excited about this year's One City, One Book selection, Born a Crime by Trevor Noah. Join us for our second One City, One Book kick-off event. This movie is based on the book The Best of Enemies: Race and Redemption in the New South by Osha Gray DavidsonIt focuses on civil rights activist Ann Atwater and Ku Klux Klan leader C. P. Ellis. Atwater (Taraji P. Henson), a civil rights activist in Durham, North Carolina, battles with the KKK leader Ellis (Sam Rockwell) for a decade until 1971, when the two agree to co-chair a two-week community meeting to deal with a court-ordered school desegregation decree, which changes both of their lives.
