The incredible true story of the friendship between Ann Atwater and C.P. Ellis is evidence of the power of transformational honesty. As depicted in the film, Ann, C.P. and the Durham community used a charrette to confront racism, inequity, and bias head-on.

A charrette is a forum for people to come together to map out a solution to a problem, but it can also be used as a way for different people to have an open discussion and create a healing space. We’ve created a charrette toolkit for you to bring people in your faith community together to host your own charrette. The toolkit provides discussion questions and activities and will allow you to address deeper issues around implicit bias and splintered communities.
