The Ku Klux Klan (KKK), also known
as the Klan or the Invisible Empire, is a right-wing extremist organization that has
emerged at three distinct periods of U.S. history: from 1865 to the 1870s, from 1915

targeted—through political rhetoric and violent actions—African Americans,
immigrants, Catholics,. . .
