What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

This eloquent blend of history and advocacy journalism ends with a follow-up on the major figures and--with that rarest quality in a book on race in America--a reason for hope.--Kirkus Reviews



Mr. Davidson's book provides a brilliant beginning for understanding the South's many poor sons and daughters, black and white.--Dallas Morning News



A powerful testament to the redemptive powers of human nature.--Booklist



For eighty years we've waited for a reply to Birth of a Nation. At last Osha Gray Davidson has done the job. The story of C. P. Ellis, Exalted Cyclops of the Ku Klux Klan of Durham, North Carolina, and of Ann Atwater, a black civil rights advocate, his enemy for so many years, is one of the most moving love stories I've ever come across. More than that, in a time of bleakness, it sounds a note of hope. The Best of Enemies is a glorious work.--Studs Terkel



A well-crafted portrait of the evolution of race relations in Durham, N.C.--and of America's tendency to ignore issues of class.--Publishers Weekly
