PHOTOS: Black Hollywood unites at ‘BlackKklansman’ premiere
Everyone was dying to see the latest Spike Lee joint starring John David Washington.
Black Hollywood was out in full effect on Wednesday night for the premiere of Spike Lee‘s latest joint, BlackKklansman.
Stars swarmed the red carpet before watching the film that focuses on the true-life story of Ron Stallworth, a Black detective who successfully infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan in the 1970s.
Executive producer, Jordan Peele, was missing in action but there were plenty of famous faces on deck to celebrate the eye-opening film before heading to Chateau Marmont for a star-studded after party.
Check out a few of our faves who showed up for the big event:
John David Washington
The star of the film was full of excitement on the red carpet and sang the praises of the film’s director, Spike Lee.

The Queen Sugar star cozied up to his wife and gushed about the effect Spike Lee joints have had on his life. “I believe in what Spike does and what Spike has done ever since She’s Gotta Have It. The next one was School Daze and that changed my whole life and made me want to be an actor. I grew up in Atlanta and it made me want to go to an HBCU.”
The actress was a vision in blue as she fielded questions about her recent guest role on Power.
