Black Klansman: How Ron Stallworth Infiltrated the KKK

Presented by UPC Nebraska

7:30 pm
Karen Wills,
UPC Nebraska presents an exclusive virtual session with Ron Stallworth, former undercover police officer and author of Black Klansman: A Memoir.

In 1978, when detective Ron Stallworth discovered a classified ad in the local paper recruiting for the Ku Klux Klan, he responded, using his real name while posing as a white man. He asked his partner Chuck to play the “white” Ron Stallworth for in-person meetings, while Stallworth himself conducted all phone conversations. During the months-long investigation, Stallworth sabotaged cross burnings, exposed white supremacists in the military, and even befriended and served on the security detail for David Duke. In this talk, Stallworth tells the story of his KKK infiltration, touching on his motivations, doubts, fears, and triumphs throughout the process.
