Summary

The extraordinary true story of the African American police officer who goes undercover to investigate the KKK, the basis for the forthcoming major motion picture written and directed by Spike Lee, and produced by Jordan Peele.

When Detective Ron Stallworth comes across a classified ad in the local paper looking for new Klan recruits in the Colorado Springs area, he responds with interest, using his real name while posing as a white man. His inquiry sparks a quick and welcoming response from the recruiter, and Ron begins to gain the Klan’s trust. Eager to recruit him, the Klan recruiter asks for a face-to-face meeting, necessitating Stallworth’s partner to play the "white" Ron Stallworth, while Stallworth himself conducts all subsequent phone conversations.

During his seven months of undercover work, Stallworth sabotages cross burnings and attempts by the Klan to further expand their membership, and weaponize a militia. As Stallworth rises higher and higher in the Klan, he realizes just how deeply seated the hate group is in Colorado government. As the Klan holds a public rally headed by Grand Wizard David Duke, Stallworth’s investigation comes to a tragic climax.

Ron Stallworth's amazing story reads like a crime thriller, and is a searing portrait of a divided America and the extraordinary heroes who dare to fight back.
