United Klans of America (UKA) was the largest Ku Klux Klan organization in America in the 1960s. The group had an estimated 30,000 dues-paying members.[1] with klaverns in sixteen states with the majority being in North Carolina.[2] The UKA was orginally founded in Georgia by Robert Davidson and Calvin Craig, previously known as the Invisible Empire, United Klans, Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.

On July 8, 1961 five hundred Klansmen from seven states meet in Indian Springs, Georgia to merge the United Klans of America with Robert Shelton's Alabama Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. With the merger, Davidson resigned and turned the organization over to Shelton who later moved the headquarters to Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

The UKA issued a newspaper--later a magazine--called The Fiery Cross.

Local United Klans groups often operated under cover names as hunting or sporting clubs.[3]
