Litquake and MoAD present | Black Klansman: Race, Hate, and the Undercover Investigation of a Lifetime
In 1978, Colorado Springs Police Detective Ron Stallworth answered a classified ad posted by the local Ku Klux Klan faction. Using his real name and some racist epithets to throw the recruiter off the truth, Stallworth received a warm welcome and request for a face-to-face meeting. The KKK had no idea he was black. Tonight we feature Stallworth and his astonishing memoir Black Klansman: Race, Hate, and the Undercover Investigation of a Lifetime, in conversation with poet/artist Michael Warr. Preceding the conversation will be a screening of the book’s film adaptation BlackKklansman, written and directed by Spike Lee, which recently won the prestigious Grand Prix Award at the Cannes Film Festival. Followed by book sales and signing.
