520    Relates how African American detective Ron Stallworth went
       undercover to investigate the Ku Klux Klan in Colorado 
       Springs in 1978, describing how he disrupted Klan 
       activities and exposed white supremacists in the military 
       during the months-long investigation 
520    "The extraordinary true story of a black police officer 
       who goe undercover to investigate the KKK, the basis for 
       the forthcoming major motion picture directed by Spike Lee
       and produced by Jordan Peele. When detective Ron 
       Stallworth, the first black detective in the history of 
       the Colorado Springs Police Department, comes across a 
       classified ad in the local paper asking for all those 
       interested in joining the Ku Klux Klan to contact a P.O. 
       box, he responds with interest. He figures he'll receive a
       few brochures in the mail, maybe even a magazine, and 
       learn more about a growing threat to his community. A few 
       weeks later the office phone rings, and the caller asks 
       Ron a question he thought he'd never have to answer, 
       'Would you like to join our cause?' This is 1978, and the 
       KKK is on the rise in the United States. Its Grand Wizard,
       David Duke, has made a name for himself, appearing on talk
       shows and in major magazine interviews preaching a 
       "kinder" Klan that wants nothing more than to preserve its
       heritage. Ron answers the caller's question that night 
       with a yes, launching what is surely one of the most 
       audacious and incredible undercover investigations in 
       history. Ron recruits his partner Chuck to play the 
       'white' Ron Stallworth, while Stallworth himself conducts 
       all subsequent phone conversations. During the months-long
       investigation, Stallworth sabotages cross burnings, 
       exposes white supremacists in the military, and even 
       manages to deceive David Duke himself. Black Klansman is 
       an amazing true story that reads like a crime thriller. 
       It's a searing portrait of a divided America and the 
       extraordinary heroes who dare to fight back."--Jacket
