Screening of An Unlikely Friendship

Join the Program in Education for a screening of "An Unlikely Friendship" followed by a Q & A session with the film's director, Diane Bloom.

"An Unlikely Friendship" is an award-winning documentary about the altogether surprising bond that developed between CP Ellis, Exalted Grand Cyclops of the Ku Klux Klan and outspoken black civil rights activist Ann Atwater. The film skillfully documents how these two came together in an intensive community event that forced them to face their differences and find common ground.

This event is open to the public!

7:00 Q&A with Diane Bloom
Reception to follow

This event will be held in White Lecture Hall (1308 Campus Drive) on Duke's East Campus.
