The Knights of the Invisible Empire of the Ku Klux Klan, or more simply known as the Ku Klux Klan, is an evil organization that was featured in the 2018 film BlacKkKlansman.
In 1972, the Colorado Springs branch of the Klan put out an advertisement in the hopes of recruiting new members to the Klan. A young African-American police detective named Ron Stallworth was able to establish phone contact with the the Klan by calling the number on the advertisement, and sent his partner Flip Zimmerman to stand in for him during face to face meetings.
Zimmerman and Stallworth were able to gather a great deal of intelligence about the Klan, including that the Klan had infiltrated the military. A couple of the Klansmen Zimmerman met manned nuclear weapons consoles at NORAD. The pair quickly passed on this intelligence to military investigators.
The infamous David Duke later came to town to initiate what appeared to be a promising new recruit in to the Klan. After Duke had left town and the cops were able to keep the Klan from murdering a young civil rights activist, Stallworth and Zimmerman were ordered to end their investigation as the chief felt they had done enough.
In one last call with Duke, Stallworth revealed to Duke that he had been conned by a black man, and ended the call by telling him off. A short time later the Klan burned a cross near Stallworth's home in retaliation.
