Spike Lee's BlacKkKlansman Hits a Nerve and Spotlights Racism
Sounds like a story made up just for a Hollywood film right??!! Of course it would take Jordan Peele and Spike Lee to bring us this true- life story in all its glory. Yes. In October 1978, Stallworth's 2014 book BlacKkKlansman details his experience. His initial contact began by responding to a classified ad in the local newspaper. Some "brotherhood" members phoned back. When it came time to meet the Klan members face-to-face, he utilized the help of a white undercover narcotics officer, who posed as Stallworth for all in-person meetings with the Klan."
