One of Spike Lee’s most audacious films is actually based on a true story; the infiltration of the Ku Klux Klan by an African-American police officer named Ron Stallworth. John David Washington plays the persevering Stallworth—the Oscar-winning screenplay was written by Charlie Wachtel, David Rabinowitz, Kevin Willmott, and Lee.
