BlacKkKlansman | John David Washington Goes Undercover

Share now:

Undercover detective, Ron Stallworth (John David Washington), puts himself at risk when he’s tasked to become a body guard for David Duke (Topher Grace) during an investigation. The members of Duke’s organization are shocked to see a black man protecting them, unaware of the fact that he’s been trailing them for months on the phone pretending to be a white man.

From visionary filmmaker Spike Lee comes the incredible true story of an American hero. In the early 1970s, Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) becomes the first African-American detective in the Colorado Springs Police Department. Determined to make a difference, he bravely sets out on a dangerous mission. He recruits a seasoned colleague, Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver), into the undercover investigation. Together, they team up to take down the extremist organization aiming to garner mainstream appeal. Produced by the team behind the Academy Award®–winning Get Out, BlacKkKlansman offers an unflinching, true-life examination of race relations in 1970s America that is just as relevant in today’s tumultuous world.
