Green Bay, WI
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.
