'The Spook Who Sat By the Door' + Reading/Q&A with Sam Greenlee
One night screening of 'The Spook Who Sat by the Door' with author Sam Greenlee in attendance!

The Spook Who Sat By the Door
Dir. Ivan Dixon, 1973, 103 mins.
The Spook Who Sat by the Door is based on the novel by the same name by Sam Greenlee. It is both a satire of the civil rights struggle in the United States of the late 1960s and a serious attempt to focus on the issue of black militancy. Dan Freeman, the titular protagonist, is enlisted in the Central Intelligence Agency's elitist espionage program as its token black. Upon mastering agency tactics, however, he drops out to train young Chicago blacks as "Freedom Fighters." As a story of one man's reaction to ruling-class hypocrisy, the film is autobiographical and personal. The novel and the film also dramatize the CIA's history of giving training to persons and/or groups who later utilize their specialized intelligence training against the agency.
