BlacKkKlansman is the story of Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) who is hired as the first black police officer in the Colorado Springs Police Department in the early 1970’s.  Stallworth, an African-American was able to successfully infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan in 1978 by pretending to be a white supremacist over the phone and sending a white officer, Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver), in his place for in-person meetings.  Stallworth was able to become the head of the local KKK chapter and sabotage their activities from within.

Movie Quotes

“There’s never been a black cop in this city. Now, if we make you an officer, you will, in effect, be the Jackie Robinson of the Colorado Springs Police Force. And if you know anything about Jackie Robinson, you know he had to take a lot of, uh, guff from his fellow teammates, the fans, other teams and the press.” – Mr. Turrentine 
“Black Power also means that we must unite. We must unite, and we must organize to form a base to fight racism.” – Mr. Turrentine

“Ron Stallworth, member in good standing for the year. Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.” – Flip Zimmerman
“That’s us. Stallworth Brothers.” – Ron Stallworth

“So, what kind of stuff you guys do?” – Flip Zimmerman
“What kind of stuff we do? We, uh, uh, cross burnings, and marches, and stuff, so people don’t f#*k with us.” – Klansman
