Event Description

Hear the inspirational story of an unlikely friendship that defied all odds. C.P. Ellis, leader of the Durham, N.C., Ku Klux Klan and Ann Atwater, a black activist and community organizer, headed a series of town meetings together on school desegregation in the 1960s, sparking a lasting friendship that challenged the concept of race relations at the time. Osha Gray Davidson explores the relationship between race and class, how cooperation is possible when people are willing to listen, and the complex evolution of race relations in the south. Davidson, author of five non-fiction books, is a regular contributor to Rolling Stone Magazine.  His work has also appeared in The New York Times, The Nation, The New Republic, Salon.com, The Washington Post, and Woman’s Day, among many others. Davidson also wrote the screenplay for the IMAX documentary “Coral Reef Adventure” and is the publisher of The Phoenix Sun, an online environmental news site. 6 p.m. reception; 7 p.m. dinner, followed by program and book signing. $45 Members; $55 non-members. Table pricing available. Call for reservations. Limited seating. Reserve early to ensure your space.  For more information, please visit thehistorycenter.org.
