How does a black detective go undercover to investigate the Ku Klux Klan?

Ron Stallworth said he “used the language of hate” to gain the confidence of Grand Wizard David Duke, who personally processed his membership in the KKK. Spike Lee even turned Stallworth’s tale into the critically-acclaimed film”Black BlacKkKlansman.”
