“The Best of Enemies” tells the true story of the unlikely relationship between an outspoken civil rights activist and a local Ku Klux Klan leader during the racially charged summer of 1971.
Event: Saturday, February 13th @ 3 to 4:30pm (Pacific Time)
Whatever your view of race relations in America, this film shows us a way to effectuate change: by winning hearts and minds, replacing our shaming and silencing with honest and engaging conversation.
This film shows us how we can foster cooperation and reconciliation with those who start out as enemies. It helps us examine how authentic, sustainable, and lasting change might happen.
As a point of clarification, there are two separate programs I am doing with Crossing Party Lines:
* Movie Nights (on Mondays) in which we view short videos together and discuss
* Film Club (on Saturday afternoons). Because these are feature length films, we watch them on our own and then come together to discuss. You will need to watch Best of Enemies prior to February 13th event.
Both of these programs are free, and both need pre-registration. Details and instructions for the Film Club's "The Best of Enemies" here.
