Stokely Carmichael speech

by Sarah O'Brien

Towards the beginning of BlackKklansman, detective Ron Stallworth gets his first assignment--to go undercover at a speech, organized by the Black Student Union, by Stokely Carmichael (aka Kwame Ture), a prominent leader in the civil rights and black power movements. The scene is shot in a shot-reverse-shot, with shots of the audience members resembling slightly stylized portraits.
