From visionary filmmaker, Spike Lee, comes the incredible true story of an American hero. It’s the early 1970’s and Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) is the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department. Determined to make a name for himself, Stallworth bravely sets out on a dangerous mission: infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan.
