From visionary filmmaker, Spike Lee, BlacKkKlansman is a story of the continuous struggle for civil rights in the early 1970’s. Among many noteworthy names, the film stars Adam Driver, Topher Grace, Alec Baldwin and John David Washington (Denzel Washington’s son). It follows Washington as Ron Stallworth, the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department, as he courageously works to infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan. Beth // James’ Mikaela Beth Kahn and Jordan James Burchill says of their participation in the film, “We’re honored to be involved with a film that’s shedding light on the disgusting racism and hate still happening in America today and all over the world. We believe that black lives matter and like the movie says, we believe in ‘all power to all the people.’”
