standing in as the "white" Ron Stallworth, he was able to sabotage cross burnings and expose members of the white supremacist group. Stallworth will discuss the months-long investigation and Black Klansman, the memoir he subsequently wrote to share his experiences of a deeply divided America. The Advancing One Community Awards will be awarded prior to the keynote address. More».
