1978, Colorado Springs. African American detective Ron Stallworth came 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 responded, expecting to learn about a growing threat to his community. Instead, he was recruited by phone to join the Klan. Stallworth recruited his partner to play the 'white' Ron Stallworth, while conducting all subsequent phone conversations himself. A searing portrait of a divided America-- and the extraordinary heroes who dare to fight back.
