Stallworth, played by John David Washington, son of actor Denzel Washington, and his partner Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver) go undercover to infiltrate the KKK at its highest levels in order to thwart its the klan’s attempt to take over the city. The two become so enmeshed in the KKK that they strike up a friendship with notorious former Grand Wizard David Duke.
Duke is featured toasting “America First” near the end of the trailer.
