2018 seems to be the year that keeps on giving when it comes to diverse and inclusive films.
We enjoyed one of the Blackest Black History Month’s since Obama left office with the release of Black Panther, A Wrinkle In Time with Oprah and the CW’s Black Lightning. Throughout the year, we have also been making history with the announcements of films featuring majority Asian casts such as Crazy, Rich Asians and To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.
The film that has been on everybody’s tongue recently is Jordan Peele and Spike Lee’s new joint, BlacKkKlansman. It’s only been in theaters for a week now and it is already being called Spike Lee’s best film yet. Even if you have no idea what it is about, just look at this movie poster:
From visionary filmmaker Spike Lee comes the incredible true story of an American hero. It’s the early 1970s, and Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) is the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department. Determined to make a name for himself, Stallworth bravely sets out on a dangerous mission: infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan. The young detective soon recruits a more seasoned colleague, Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver), into the undercover investigation of a lifetime. Together, they team up to take down the extremist hate group as the organization aims to sanitize its violent rhetoric to appeal to the mainstream. Produced by the team behind the Academy-Award® winning Get Out.
