Sunday@The Movies Youth Group Outing: The Best of Enemies

Middle School and High School Youth are are invited to join us for a twist on Monday@TheMovies!

The Best of Enemies opens in theaters this week and it is a "must-see" movie based on a true story that while it is technically "history" it is incredibly relevant for today. The movie centers on the unlikely relationship between Ann Atwater (Henson), an outspoken civil rights activist, and C.P. Ellis (Rockwell), a local Ku Klux Klan leader who reluctantly co-chaired a community summit, battling over the desegregation of schools in Durham, North Carolina during the racially-charged summer of 1971. The incredible events that unfolded would change Durham and the lives of Atwater and Ellis forever.

Please note that this is rated PG-13 (for thematic material, racial epithets, some violence and a suggestive reference) .

After the movie we’ll grab dinner at a nearby quick service restaurant to have a quick discussion. Cost is $5 to help defray the cost of the movie, plus bring money to buy movie snacks/dinner. For more information and to RSVP contact gloria.cox@pilgrimoakpark.org
