Abstract

Spike Lee's new film about the infiltration of the KKK by a black police detective in the 1970s, BlacKkKlansman was released this month. Christine Gallagher writes that not only does the film make allusions to the America of Donald Trump, it also reverses the previously powerful historic film binary where whites are sympathetic and blacks are portrayed negatively.
