BlacKkKlansman movie costumes on display...

With neo-Nazi white supremacists marching through the streets of America in recent years there was never a better time for last year's Spike Lee Oscar-nominated BlacKkKlansman movie to shine a spotlight on racism in the U.S., past and present. This film is set in the 1970s and based on the 2014 memoir by police officer Ron Stallworth (played by John David Washington), the first African-American detective in the Colorada Springs police department, who sets out to infiltrate and expose the local chapter of the Ku Klux Klan with the help of fellow Jewish officer 'Flip Zimmerman' (Adam Driver) going undercover. Laura Harrier plays 'Patrice Dumas', the president of the black student union at Colorado College who Stallworth meets undercover at a civil rights rally.
