Blackkklansman W/ Ron Stallworth Live Q&A

Published

on

Meet the real Ron Stallworth – the detective whose unbelievable true story inspired this movie – at this special LIVE Q&A featuring Ron in person with his wife, Patsy. Afterwards, Ron will sign copies of his book BLACK KLANSMAN – available for purchase along with your ticket.

Ron Stallworth (John David Washington, BALLERS) is the Colorado Springs PD’s first African-American detective. Seeking to prove himself, Stallworth sets about taking down the Ku Klux Klan, bringing colleague Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver, STAR WARS) along for the ride. Together, Stallworth and Zimmerman infiltrate and ascend the Klan’s hierarchy, aiming to expose the organization even as it attempts to bring its hateful message to the mainstream.

Alamo Drafthouse Cinema | Saturday, August 25th 7:00pm

Based on Stallworth’s incredible autobiography, BLACKKKLANSMAN fiercely and fearlessly takes on the KKK in an unforgettable true story. Legendary filmmaker Spike Lee (DO THE RIGHT THING, MALCOLM X, 25TH HOUR) brings Stallworth’s story to life with all his trademark style, wit, and fire, alongside the producing team behind 2017’s smash-hit GET OUT.

Though set in the 1970s, BLACKKKLANSMAN is a stinging rebuke to the organized racism of today, and one of Lee’s most striking films to date. Examining the propagation and normalization of hate with an intelligent, horrifying, darkly hilarious eye, it’s little wonder it won the prestigious Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival.

Cheadle to Produce & Star in Movie About First Black Millionaire

Published

By

After his latest stint in Avengers: Endgame, actor Don Cheadle is set to star in a movie that he will produce himself. The movie, which is entitled Prince of Darkness, will portray the inspiring story of the first Black millionaire, Jeremiah G. Hamilton.

Cheadle will be teaming up once again with Steven Baigelman, who co-wrote the Miles Ahead screenplay with him in 2015. This time, Baigelman will write the script for the movie adapted from Shane White’s book Prince of Darkness: The Story of Jeremiah G. Hamilton, Wall Street’s First Black Millionaire which won the 2015 Society for Historians of the Early American Republic Best Book Prize.

Hamilton, who escaped from Haiti in 1828, became a successful Wall Street financier in less than a decade.


He worked with white people in the business world, married a white woman, bought a mansion in rural New Jersey, and owned railroad stock on trains he was not legally allowed to even ride. He reportedly accumulated about $2 million until his death in 1875. Hamilton became the richest Black man in the U.S. as he braved the norm during that time. The inspiring story that will be adapted to film is expected to bring more awareness about his life and how became known as the Prince of Darkness.
