The true story of a black man infiltrating the Ku Klux Klan in Colorado Springs the 70s is depicted in the film BlackkKlansman. Ron Stallworth was a young police officer with the state police. He found an ad recruiting members for the Klan and called the number. When a meeting was arranged a surrogate white officer had to go in his place. He and other undercover officers infiltrate and thwart the Klan. This is an interesting story in which the period is represented well. The racial tones are disturbing, but that is the intent. Well done.
