Elisabeth Omilami is Ann Atwater, a fearless, grass-roots civil rights activist. Bruce Evers is C.P. Ellis, an outspoken exalted cyclops of a klan chapter. The two meet when Bill Riddick, a federal mediator played by Enoch King, is sent by the Department of Education to oversee court-ordered desegregation. Riddick is charged with putting together a steering committee that represents the community’s various viewpoints: C.P. and Ann agree to serve on the committee. Lala Cochran portrays Mary Ellis, C.P.’s wife. Amidst their incendiary words of prejudice and fear, Ann and C.P. forge an alliance based in respect and trust – and score a victory for civil rights – in this honest-to-goodness, modern-day parable of transformation.
