The business minds behind a popular cannabis lifestyle brand Gumbo–publicly enjoyed by top music artists like Meek Mill, Migos, Dave East, Fabolous, and others–are officially launching an innovative new company, GUMBO Brands, with a two-day, immersive pop-up experience in New York City on October 27-28, 2021.

With legalization having passed in New York, it’s an exciting time for the cannabis industry overall. But a look at the demographics behind marijuana businesses nationwide shows that legalization alone isn’t enough to provide reparations for the communities damaged by 50+ years of criminalization. In this space, GUMBO Brands is leveraging creative cultural interventions to encourage entrepreneurship and support racial justice outcomes and inclusion.

THE BEST OF ENEMIES is a timely, inspiring drama starring Academy Award® nominee Taraji P. Henson (Hidden Figures) and Academy Award® winner Sam Rockwell (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri).

 

Based on a true story, THE BEST OF ENEMIES centers on the extraordinary relationship between Ann Atwater (Henson), a fearless and outspoken civil rights activist who faced off against C.P. Ellis (Rockwell), a local Ku Klux Klan leader, to blaze the way for school desegregation in Durham, North Carolina, in 1971.
