From Oscar®-nominated indie pioneer Spike Lee comes the incredible true story of an American hero. It’s the early 1970s, a time of great social upheaval as the struggle for civil rights rages on. Ron Stallworth (Golden Globe nominee John David Washington) becomes the first African-American detective on the Colorado Springs Police Department, but his arrival is greeted with skepticism and open hostility by the department’s rank and file. Undaunted, Stallworth resolves to make a name for himself and a difference in his community by hatching a plan to infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan. Featuring a charismatic supporting turn from Oscar nominee Adam Driver, BlacKkKlansman is a stylish, relentlessly entertaining action-comedy and an unflinching, true-life examination of race relations in 1970s America that is just as bracingly relevant in today’s tumultuous world.
