The KKK ruled Denver a century ago. Here’s how the hate group’s legacy is still being felt in 2021.

The more than 30,000 names in the documents include those of the men the Klan’s political machine installed as Colorado’s governor, Denver’s mayor and police chief, judges, state senators and representatives.
