True story: In 1971 Durham, North Carolina, a community organizer set up a series of community meetings in hopes of averting what many feared was imminent violence over the desegregation of their local schools. He invited two “enemies” to co-chair the discussions: Ann Atwater, an African American civil rights leader and trade union organizer – and Clairborne Paul Ellis, a Ku Klux Klan leader and avid segregationalist.
