Adanti Student Center - Theater

Spike Lee brings us the amazing true story of Ron Stallworth, the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department, who infiltrates and exposes the Ku Klux Klan. Posing as a racist white man who "hated Blacks, Jews, Mexicans, Asians," the young Stallworth (John David Washington) applies by phone for membership and then recruits a white officer, Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver) to serve as his undercover surrogate. Together, they work to take down the KKK as the hate group sanitizes its violent rhetoric to appeal to the mainstream.
