*Nope, you’re not seeing things, the title does read African American and Undercover Klansman in the same sentence. And the black man who went uncover in the most notoriously hateful organization in history still lives to tell the story.
It was1979 when Colorado Springs police investigator Ron Stallworth made the phone call that would change the next nine months of his life. He had called a number shown in a KKK newspaper ad to gather information. What he got instead was an offer to become a member.
And it didn’t stop there.
After being perceived as a “loyal and dedicated” member, Stallworth got an invitation to lead the local KKK chapter.
Of course, if they knew he was a black man, the scenario would’ve been different.
