From visionary filmmaker Spike Lee comes the incredible true story Ron Stallworth. Ron, played by John David Washington, was 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. Stallworth dupes them on the phone and when a physical meeting was required sends along a white colleague (Adam Driver) to stand in for him.
