Head over to Row House Cinema to watch this critically-acclaimed film, directed by Spike Lee, any time between Friday and the next Thursday. Here’s a description of the film from Row House’s website: “Spike Lee’s drama, produced by the team behind Get Out offers another provocative exploration of American race relations. In the midst of the 1970s civil rights movement, Ron Stallworth becomes the first black detective on the Colorado Springs Police Department. He sets out to prove his worth by infiltrating the local chapter of the KKK and convinces his Jewish colleague to go undercover as a white supremacist.”
