THE BEST OF ENEMIES Race and Redemption in the New South

by | Read by Keith Sellon-Wright

History • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

The audiobook edition of Davidson's 1996 book still resonates in the context of today's unsettling race relations. Narrator Keith Sellon-Wright reflects the writer's engagement with reaching back to post-Civil War Durham, North Carolina, to explain its distinctive economic and social development. Davidson's account is studded with anecdotes, and all receive a lively delivery by Sellon-Wright. Woven into the city's history are stories of C.P. Ellis, a staunch KKK leader, and Ann Atwater, a powerful African-American activist. Sellon-Wright vivifies their pasts of poverty and instability. When the two serve on a committee to improve the chaotic Durham public schools, which their children attend, Sellon-Wright captures their emotional opposition and, finally, their mutual understanding and respect.
