There’s a certain poetic irony in the idea of a black detective going undercover to take down the Ku Klux Klan. No, this isn’t from the imagination mind of a creative writer. It comes via the true crime work of detective Ron Stallworth, who in 1978 infiltrated Colorado chapter of the Klan by duping Grand Wizard David Duke.
This film boasts an all-star ensemble with Jordan Peele producing, Spike Lee directing, and starring John David Washington (Denzel Washington’s son), Adam Driver (The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi) and Topher Grace as David Duke.
BlacKKKlansman hits theaters on August 10.
