A joint presentation of the Shuswap Film Society andSalmar Theatre.

This is the true story of Ron Stallworth, who, in the turbulent early 70s, was a rookie cop and the first African-American on the Colorado Springs Police Department. Determined to prove himself, Ron takes an undercover assignment, first with a local black activist group. He soon spots an ad seeking members to a new chapter of the KKK and calls the number. In an incredible truth-is-strangerthan-fiction story, with a fellow officer, he infiltrates white supremacists as the first “blackklansman”.
