The Best of Enemies Review

ABOUT THE MOVIE THE BEST OF ENEMIES

1971: at Durham, in North Carolina, Ann Atwater tries to get better housing conditions for poor black people, and is ignored by the all white judge panel. CP is the president of the KKK, and has a family with children. It's shown that he loves and cares for his family. Ann's daughters school catches on fire (whether by accident or arson is unclear), and CP is afraid that the black children will come to the white schools. The city council makes a finding that the school is still usable, so the NAACP helps file a lawsuit. The judicial decision is to bring in a proven mediation expert, Bill Riddick, who sets up a meeting with the both of them.
