EMMERICH ADMINISTRATOR September 14, 1966 Mr. Dupree Jordan Office of Economic Opportunity Lol Marietta Street, N. W. Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear Dupree: In order to keep you posted on our problems here in the city I would like to send you this brief report. Frankly, we feel now since the white murder suspect has been placed in jail things will cool off for a while. Probably the most gratify- ing thing which has come out of this whole situation is the outstanding leadership which EOA's neighborhood service center staff and local advisory committees were able to give to our disadvantaged neighborhoods and our Negro communities. We have received praise from the Mayor's Office and from the Negro community leadership. They are still working hard. Since the beginning of our race disturbance in the City of Atlanta, EOA through its local advisory committees and its community service staff has worked long hours trying to calm the disturbed people in their neighborhoods. The results have been most gratifying. Thinking back over all the recommendations that were made it is crystal clear to me that our citizens living in the areas of the disadvantaged were treating this disturbance as a special incident and did not and jcould not properly connect it to the community's long-range needs or goals. It seems to be very obvious that the Negro leadership was just as disturbed and concerned as the whiteleadership. [In fact, they worked just as hard and probably harder to bring matters Mr. Jordan —2- September 14, 1966 under control. They were pleased with the Mayor's actions but were rather vocal in their criticism of the police. They did not connect the outbreak with our organization or the efforts being made to help build a better Atlanta. If you will review the following suggestions which were made over and over again, I am convinced you will also recognize that the grass root leadership as weli as tne Summit Leader- ship was trying to advise how to stop the incident and not to cure long-range needs. ; Recommendations for Emergency Action Ll. A number of youth in the Boulevard area do not approve of some of the methods being used to call attention to- grievances, which have resulted in violence. Accordingly, they have organized themselves into the Boulevard North- east Youth Council and would like to meet with some responsi- ble City officials to discuss these grievances. 2. Their immediate concern is in regard to recreation. Successes evidenced. by the Summer Recreation Program and _Playlots have inspired them to seek action. Several vacant lots on Boulevard offer possibilities of being used for such programs which should include facilities for dances, games and other types of entertainment. 3. There is considerable concern also about funeral arrange- ments for Hulet Varner, Jr., the young man who was killed. The young ‘people feel strongly that the public officials, as well as the community, should have an opportunity to join the family of the deceased in a mutual expression of grief. 4. The position of the family, especially the deceased youth's mother, in being able to provide an appropriate burial is in question and the interest taken in this matter is of importance. 5. The members of the Youth Council’ would like to have badges to pin on new members and handbills to pass out which would show their interest in non-violence and good human relations. Mr. Jordan -3- September 14, 1966 6. It is recommended that integrated police squad cars be used in the area. 7. There should be an investigation of the Grady Hospital ambulance service which is reported to have failed to pick up the two Negro youths at first but took the white policeman. The results of the investigation should be publicized. 8. Questions are also Heide raised as to why the doors of the Georgia Baptist Hospital,which is nearby, were not opened to the Negro victims of the Saturday night shooting. 9. There are also questions as to why there are no reports on the condition of the second youth, the young man who ‘was shot on Capitol Avenue and continued announcements and steps taken to bring about justice in both cases. The arrests of suspects have lessened the tension greatly and especially the frequent and wide-spread newscasts in regard thereto. It took a great deal of digging for our local leadership to come up with long-range corrective measures. Basically they made few emergency recommendations that have not already been discussed many times by the local advisory committees, the Citizens Central Advisory Council and the EOA Board. However, it was plain that they still believe that their long-range answer to Atlanta's problem is to build a great city which will give much effort to accomplish the following. ~ Ll. Cooperation of all major employers to build a city where equal employment opportunities are a matter of normal course where every citizen may advance in accordance with his education, training, experience and ability. It was clear in every meeting that adequate jobs and job oppor- tunities were considered probably the most important recommendations made. 2. That the number and quality of job training courses be increased so that every unemoloyed person will have the opportunity for advancement and for a good job. 3. That the Atlanta educational programs continue to improve so that every person will have an opportunity to remain in school and to receive quality education in accordance with his ability. Mr. Jordan . -4- September 14, 1966 4. That slum housing be abolished with speed and that adequate housing be available for. all citizens. 5. That all citizens have full and equal opportunities to participate in all of the community's programs and activities. 6. That Atlanta's services through the United Appeal, the county welfare program, the county health program, the state employment service, EOA and others all be continued and improve so that opportunities may be extended to all disadvantaged in the city. EOA's staff is now compiling all the suggestions made to date, and they will be brought to the attenti f the Citizens Central Advisory Council this week, probably Friday, for a final review. After this is done the recommendations of the council will be submitted to the official EOA Board at its next regular meeting on September 21. © : We are doing everything we can to work with, our community leaders and will keep you informed. As soon as our recommendations are in hand I will send them to you. Sincerely yours, oe oe f ~ ee ee Cc. O. Emmerich COE: aw

  • Text: STATEMENT BY IVAN ALLEN, JR. MAYOR OF ATLANTA On Civil Disorder in Atlanta, Tuesday, September 6, 1966 The disorders in the Summerhill neighborhood in Southeast Atlanta last evening were the result of a deliberate attempt by certain members of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (Snick) to éreate an incident of this very nature. We can be thankful there were no serious injuries. Some 10 police officers received minor injuries, mostly as a result of tear gas, Assessment of property damage has not been completed, but it does not appear to be too severe. Five City police cars were damaged as a result of bricks or bottles thrown through windows. Seventy-two arrests were made by the Police Department, Conditions at this time indicate that the violence has ended and calm exists throughout the area,. The Atlanta Police Department is now working two twelve-hour shifts until further notification by Chief Jenkins. All off-duty firemen have been placed on alert. The firemen on duty during the night responded promptly and efficiently to several calls in the area, The spark of violence ignited by a few reckless and irresponsible individuals touched off an explosion of civil disorder that shattered Atlanta's long record of racial amity. Page 2 I must again commend the members of the Atlanta Police Department for their prompt response and handling of this situation. The citizens of Atlanta, and especially the good citizens of Summerhill- Mechanicsville, can be justly proud of their police officers this morning. Iam not talking from hearsay when I say that every citizen of Atlanta owes a debt of wholehearted gratitude to our dedicated police officers, for I was personally in the thick of the disturbance throughout those frightful hours of mob hysteria. No one need make charges to me about police brutality during this disorder, I saw plenty of brutality, but it was being used against the police officers, not by them. From what I heard with my own ears and saw with my own eyes in the center of this melee, I feel certain that hundreds of normally good citizens were inflamed/‘out of their normal senses. They were victimized by those who sought to incite violence. We sincerely appreciate the action of Governor Carl Sanders and the Georgia Department of Public Safety for the backup men and equipment provided to us. It is a tragedy that a few irresponsible and misdirected youths have such utter disregard and contempt for their fellow man that they place the lives and property of innocent citizens in serious jeopardy.

  • Text: September 12, 1966 Arlie Schardt had two observations: l, Ze Mayor will be a fool if he doesn't ban all cameras in the area - especially TV -- the news coverage is ''egging'' the people on and exciting them, He and other reporters (he is sure) would be thankful for being banned - danger involved, etc. However, they feel they must go in and cover the story as long as they have not been banned, Mayor is in increasing danger. According to the news people, this week is really going to be a bad week. One reason is because Martin Luther King is in town. He is holding a meeting tonight and they feel this could be dangerous simply because of the number of people involved. They feel if the Mayor could offer him some way to save face without demonstrating this would help. He needs an out without being labeled ''Uncle Tom". The ''grass rooters'' made the following observations: l. Be They admire the Mayor for going to the scene. The Mayor's psychology would be much better if he would go there and just listen to the people and let them enumerate their problems. They say he talks to the people like a step father looking down his nose. He doesn't talk to them like they are humans. He was very badly criticized for leaving Foote Street Church yesterday before the people could talk to him. They say he said what he had to say and they would not stay and hear them, saying "he had to go - he was a very busy man and had things to do". Complain of police brutality -- very rude to people -- guns -- etc.

Sweat, Jr. Director of Governmental Liaison City of Atlanta City Hall Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear Dan: All of our project directors are holding staff meetings today with an effort of coming up with ideas on how we might help our City meet the present crisis. We will probably hold a meeting between 5 and 6 this afternoon with our project directors and Chairman of all our local advisory committees with the hope we can find out from them what we might do. If all this works satisfactorily I might want to have a Board meeting tomorrow and then present the City with a series of project requests which the Mayor might want to make to Mr. Sargent Shriver through our local EOA committee. We feel this might give us a chance to get sufficient funds to do some of the things which might help the Mayor in a big way. I will keep you posted as we move along. Please do not have any more reports coming back that you are in the hospital. This gave us all a big fright. We are all proud of what you are doing. Please excuse the hurriedly written notes, Sincerely yours, A Aarti c. O. Emmerich COE: aw

He said they were going to start a campaign to get the McDaniel Housing Project built. They are going to start complaining to the press. He said they object to the Mayor meeting with the Summit group -- that they never heard of what went on in the meetings and that the Summit Leadership certainly didn't represent them in Mechanicsville.

Sweat, Jr. Director of Governmental Liaison City of Atlanta City Hall Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear Dan: A committee called on me this morning along with representatives from one of our projects suggesting ways in which our City might help quieten our people. Rev. Albert R. Dreisbach, Jr. and a young Negro Baptist preacher were the ones that did most of the talking. The first thing they said probably the Mayor should do is to quit playing the part of a hero. They are afraid he might be hurt and it could cause a real riot. They suggested that the Mayor quit telling them about our great city and what we hope to accomplish. This calls for a high degree of reasoning on their part and at the present the people are acting from emotional upset and fright. They said the Mayor should stop calling on the Summit Leadership and several leaders such as Rev. Borders and Rev. King, Sr. He claims the young people are not impressed and assume they are speaking for the white people. They further suggested that the police try to be less aggressive. Mr. Sweat -2- September 12, 1966 They also wanted to know why the Georgia Baptist Hospital was not used to help the boys in trouble. They also suggested the Mayor quit blaming all of this on SNCC as there are a lot of people that also dislike SNCC that are emotionally involved and the more he persecutes SNCC at this time the more these people will come to the aid of SNCC. At one time they even suggested that they wished Carmichael was out of jail. One of the main stories they were fussing about was that two Grady ambulances came to the rescue of the police but almost . ignored the Negroes that had been shot. The next thing they pointed out is that the Mayor has not expressed great concern about the second Negro that is wounded. This is what is bothering the community. Some think he has died. Frankly, these are things that most anyone could tell you, how- ever, when I pressed them for positive things they could only suggest five ideas which they think may work. 1. Have the Mayor report often by TV, radio and news- paper on his concern for the second wounded Negro. Give as much proof as possible that he is still doing well, etc. 2. Have the Mayor make himself available for some of the members to come in and gripe to him. They feel at this time some of these people need to ventilate (?) on their own. It would only mean the Mayor would listen to some of these people and really let them tell the the story. 3. Have the Mayor investigate why the ambulances did not arrive to pick up the Negro boys (if this is true). 4. Try to pick up some quick success stories of things that are being accomplished right now. 5. Have reports come out often on the detectives efforts on trying to find the murderers. Let it be known by all the press media that every effort is being made. Mr. Sweat -3- September 12, 1966 I realize there is not a thing said here that you are not aware of already, but since this was the consensus of the group I thought I would send it on to you. Under separate letter I am giving you a report on some of the things we are now doing. Sincerely yours, c. O. Emmerich
