BLACKKKLANSMAN raises a defiant fist against the racism and bigotry that defines modern day America... More

BLACKKKLANSMAN raises a defiant fist against the racism and bigotry that defines modern day America. Spike Lee's masterful telling of this true tale leaves audiences breathless - both for its interplay of hope and hate - and the realization that the world we live in has not progressed far from the birth of our nation. John David Washington and Adam Driver lead an extraordinary ensemble that transcends identity to shine a light in dark corners, exposing institutions that still allow intolerance to dim the dream of all power to all people.

"Spike Lee has been an outstanding warrior for equal rights while creating an iconic body of film and television work over his 30-year career. In BlacKkKlansman, Lee directs one of his best and most provocative films about an African-American detective and a white detective who are determined to infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan in Colorado Springs. It is our great honor to present the Career Achievement Award to Spike Lee."
