BlacKkKlansman’s now has a poster

The first poster the the amazing story of a black police officer who becomes a member of the Klu Klux Klan.

It’s a simple poster but it shows you every thing you need to know about the film.  Form the klan hood via the afro comb & black power hand gesture down to the police badge hanging around officer Stallworth’s neck.

It does seem to fit the idea of the film.  Turning it into more of a comedy.  Then again if you read more about the case, the more you feel that it’s not that far from the truth.  The real Ron Stallworth doesn’t feel any sympathy to the people he has referred to as “assholes

It’s the early 1970s, a time of great social upheaval as the struggle for civil rights rages on. Ron Stallworth becomes the first African-American detective on the Colorado Springs Police Department, but his arrival is greeted with skepticism and open hostility by the department’s rank and file. Undaunted, Stallworth resolves to make a name for himself and a difference in his community. He bravely sets out on a dangerous mission: infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan.

Posing as a racist extremist, Stallworth contacts the group and soon finds himself invited into its inner circle. He even cultivates a relationship with the Klan’s Grand Wizard, David Duke, who praises Ron’s commitment to the advancement of White America. With the undercover investigation growing ever more complex, Stallworth’s colleague, Flip Zimmerman, poses as Ron in face-to-face meetings with members of hate group, gaining insider’s knowledge of a deadly plot. Together, Stallworth and Zimmerman team up to take down the organization whose real aim is to sanitize its violent rhetoric to appeal to the mainstream.
