Wellspring: September 18

The next Wellspring takes place on September 18, at 7:00 pm in Founders Hall. An Unlikely Friendship is a 35 minute documentary made in 2003 by UUFR member Stephen Hawthorne and friends about how Ann Atwater, an outspoken black activist in Durham, and C.P. Ellis, Exalted Cyclops of the Durham KKK, each overcame their racist views. They became lifelong friends during the process of working together successfully to end segregation in the Durham City Schools. Their story was also the basis of this year’s movie Best of Enemies. Discussion will follow the film.
