Based on actual events in the midst of the 1970s Civil Rights Movement, BlacKkKlansman (135 min., rated R) depicts an African American police officer who infiltrates a local chapter of the Ku Klux Klan and convinces his Jewish colleague to go undercover as a white supremacist. This 2018 Spike Lee joint offers a provocative exploration of American race relations.

Watch the film (beginning at 4 pm), then stay for the discussion (from 6:30-7:30 pm), facilitated by Dr. Vince Lowery and Dr. Bryan Carr. All are welcome! Free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. Sponsored by MESA and Student Life.
