When composer Terence Blanchard first heard the plot of "BlacKkKlansman he "didn't think it was a real story. I kept thinking, wow, this is a great piece of fiction." But when director Spike Lee informed his longtime collaborator that the tale of Ron Stallworth (John David Washington), an African-American police officer who infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan in the late 1970s, was indeed true, Blanchard thought, "this has to be one of the most courageous people on the planet. A rookie cop, with a high level of integrity, who decided to take on such a task, was just an amazing thing."
