1972. Ron Stallworth arrives as the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department. Ambitious, and determined to make his mark, Stallworth embarks on a perilous mission: infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan. After recruiting the seasoned Flip Zimmerman for the sting of the decade, together they work to thwart the extremist hate group’s efforts to appeal to mainstream America. Winning the Grand Prix at Cannes, and produced by Jordan Peele (Get Out), Spike Lee’s biographical dramedy tells the uncompromising story of an American hero.
