The El Paso Community Foundation will be welcoming best-selling author Ron Stallworth at the screening of the BlacKkKlansmen movie in March.

The Oscar-nominated film BlacKkKlansmen, directed by Spike Lee, will be screened by the El Paso Community Foundation benefitting the Migrant Families Relief Fund.

Austin High School graduate and El Paso based author, Ron Stallworth, wrote the New York Times best-selling memoir Black Klansmen, which details how he infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan back in the ’70s as a police detective in Colorado Springs.

The BlacKkKlansmen was directed by Spike Lee and has been nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Picture and for Best Director, the first nomination for director Lee. Make sure to tune in this Sunday, February 24, 2019, when the Oscars will air live on ABC.

Stallworth will be onsite at the screening of the film and will also have pre-signed copies of his book available for sale at the event along with a Q&A after the screening.

Proceeds from the movie screening will benefit the Migrant Families Relief Fund which assists four El Paso nonprofits that provide shelter, legal services, advocacy and other support for migrants, refugees and asylum seekers here in the U.S. such as the Annunciation House, the Detained Migrant Solidarity Committee, Diocesan Migrant & Refugee Services, and Las Americas Immigrant Advocacy Center.
