  • Text: Why They Cry Black Power Outbreaks in Atlanta sense of belonging to one human family can alone save this planet. But the time is short before hate shuts the doors. The time is coming when we will regret the billions wasted in Vietnam, The time is coming when we may regret the number of Negroes we have trained there in guerrilla war. There is hardly a city where the Negroes do not already domi- ate the strategic areas through which the affluent commiuter passes on his way to the inner core. SNCC’s hostility to the war is not disloyalty but wisdom. We cannot rebuild that sense of community so essential to our beloved- country's fu- ‘ure by engaging in a white man’s war in Asia while a black nan’s revolt rises at home. SNCC'S VERSION OF WHAT HAPPENED IN ATLANTA Wee thonght our readers would like to see SNCC's version of what sparked the Atlanta riots, Marion Barry of SNCC's Wash- migion affice gave the following account ta the press Sept, 8 on Ais return from Atlanta where he was attending a SNCC workshop when the first outhreal occurred Sept. 6: 5 At approximately 11S pam. two white poliiemen stopped 4a car driven by Harold Prather, a 2S-vear old Negro. who lived 34 of 4 block away. The cops stopped Prather at Capitol avenue and Ormond a According to $5 or 20) persons whe witnesse! the indent. Prather jumped from the car and ran and was shot three times by one of the white officers, “Prather kept moving at a very slow speed and was fred upon again as he tried to get to his home 44 of a block away,” said one witness, He finally made it and fell om the porch. Immediately after the shooting, a crowd of 150 ta 200) persons gathered at Prather’s house to protest the shooting. There were no SNCC people present. Stokeley Carmichael, SNCC chairman, rcturn-. ing from a radio interview heard about the incident over the radio and went to the scene. The people there were very angry. The. local people wanted Carmichael to come back and help organize a peace- ful protest demonstration, It was called for 4 p.m. q Witnesses Asked to Speak At approximately 3:30 p.m. two SNCC people arrived at Capitol Ave. and Ormond St., the scene of the demonstration; 200 people were there. The local people had made their own signs and gone aroufid in the various neighborhoods informing their friends as to what had happened. At 3:45 p.m. Bill Ware, project directér for SNCC's Atlanta Project. and three other SNCC people arrived with a osound track, Ware asked the assembled people what had hap- pened and they began te tell him. Ware said the whole group should know what bad fuppened and asked af witnesses would tell about the incident over the public address system: Several persons bean telling what they had seen. Police officers mmmediately moved ino and told Ware ta turn off the PLA. system. Ware informed the policemen that he wanted to step iumers and inake sure that everyone knew what had happened? The policemen immediately arrested Ware. Another SNCC worker asked if people still wanted to talk, The local people said “yes.” The talking con- tinued and police arrested the SNCC person. This made the crowd angrier. They demanded that police release the two SNCC people. The loca! people said that they would sit in the streets until the two persons were released and the Mayor suspended the policeman who shot Prather. ‘ The policemen tried to remove people and arrested some who: lived in the neighborhood. ‘The arrests were immediately protested by the crowd, but to no avail. The people really got angry and started pushing some of the officers and several bottles were thrown, Mayor Ivan Allen arrived on the scene and brought with him 150-200 white policemen and an armored truck loaded with white cops, machine guns and other riot equipment. White officers with shotguns were stationed al! along the street. At that time Mayor Allen tried to lead the crowd to the Atlanta stadium some 4 or 5 blocks away. The crowd refused to leave their neighborhood. The crowd was also anery because all of the white officers had machine guns and shotguns, but the Negro officers had only their pistols, This really set the crowd off. Bottles. bricks and other objects were thrown at the white officers, What the Protesters Wanted Allen tried to talk to the people from’ atop a police car but they would not listen because the crowd wanted one of their leaders to talk and not Allen. The block leader who got on top of the car demanded that 1) white cops get out of there with machine guns and shotguns, 2) the release of all those illegally and unjustly ar- rested, and 3) the cops be fired who shot the young Negro. The crowd cheered the demands but Allen refused to answer. He refused to address himself to their grievances, at which time he was toppled from the police car. Then 50 to 60 cops rushed into the crowd and started hitting and pushing people. Mayor Allen then directed that tear pas be used to disperse the 1500 people who were on the scene. “Tear pas them or tear those houses down,” Allen shouted. All 400 to 500 officers began firing their pistols and shotguns without warning, both in the atr and at the crowd. It was a terrify- CONT. P. 3 ee ATLANTA RACE RIOTS - THE "OTHER" “SIDE PRESENTED... cont. from P. 2 ing experience. Unarmed people were assaulted by officers armed with tear gas, pistols, machine guns and shotguns. Never seen any- thing like it. Little kids, 7 or 8 years old were hit with tear gas cancisters. Black women were clubbed to the ground. Anyone wha was nue . ~ fast enough was immediately arrested and thrown head first in the py wagon. Cops fired tear gas indiscriminately into the homes of Black people who were not even on the street. Little kids came out gasping for air. Cops went onto Black people's porches to beat and arrest them. During this period, several police cars were stoned, and several pol’ © cca were injured. DBuring-all of this, the attack was directed by | ... Ivan Allen. He ordered little kids tear-gassed. He ordered white ..>s to beat and arrest black people. SNCC’s Role in the Outbreak Now as to SNCC’s role: 1) SNCC has only one project in Atlanta and that is in an area called Vine City which is on the other side of the town from the disorders. 2) SNCC has never worked in the neighborhood where the disorders took place. 3) It was the shooting of the young Negro by the white cops, then subsequent arrests of SNCC people that made people angry. 4) The local people them- selves made the signs and got their friends together, 5) Stokeley Carmichael drove through the area only after the disorders began. G) Most of ..0 O°'CC | oople arrived on the scene after the crowd had gathered and police w.. heating people. 7) The focus should he on Mayor Allen and his r. rops and not SNCC. At 11 a.m. that day SNCC members had gov. the Mayor's office with a com- plaint concerning police officials. ... “s time Mayor Allen refused to speak with the group and dismis..i ... - by stating, “You're out of line in Atlanta which is known for its 1.ir and equal treatment of all citizens.” —e—————————

  • Text: Tulsa, Oklahoma September 19, 1966 Honorable Ivan Allen Atlanta, Georgia Dear Mayor Allen; With all the criticism being levelled and all the news media play being given to your recent racial situation, I would like to take this means of expressing my approval (for what little it is worth) of the manner you and your city have handled yourselves. Presently living in Oklahoma, moving there from 4 years in Alabama proir to which I lived for 3 years in Chicago, I have a relatively objective viewpoint regarding the racial issue geographically speaking. I have no feelings one way or the other regarding colors or races as such. However, I have learned to harbor very strong feelings with regard to rights v. s. responsibilities and so have very little regard for those groups, regardless of color, who would prefer to demonstrate and protest, rather than work for their objectives. While I feel there many people who symphatize with this view, I certainly had not seen it exemplified by many of our public office holders and political aspirants. For the most part they had capitulated to whatever radical demands that came along and actually allowed themselves be "shook down" or blackmailed into giving in to demands just to quiet the noise and minimize any political repurcussions. It was then, especially refreshing to see you exercise restraint while giving the radical elements a chance to quiet the waters on their own initiative, refusing to talk until the waters were quieted, and then taking firm action when it was proper and driving home the fact that your city was above all else a city of law and order. I'm sure that the great majority of the citizens of Atlanta admired and respected your course of action. My only purpose in writing this letter is to let you know that there*$ome of us in other sections of the U. S. who do too. When we have enough men of conviction in all the various public offices, rights and responsibilities will come in the same package and earned, not rioted for. ae Oy - PLE. a G. eek

This is not one of those letters. As a resident and an enthusiastic supporter of everything that is good for Atlanta and Georgia, I want to commend you for your forth- right and courageous position in the current political quagmire. Your leadership in dealing with the problems existing in the Fire Department further demonstrated to me that the offices of the Mayor were in very sound hands. As I sat, comfortable and secure, watching you on television being violently shaken from the rooftop of the automobile in the recent civil rights demonstrations, I couldn't help but wonder how many of your critics would have the "guts" as Mayor, to go directly into the fray in an effort to use the power of your office to restore logic and order to the city. I only hope that a situation of this kind making demands on your bravery may never recur. My sincere respect and appreciation for the good job you are doing as the Mayor of Atlanta. Sincerely, a. a [A ward’ P, Stuart oP EPS:mb

In my opinion, the arresting of Carmichael is the most constructive effort to stop rioting that any city has made. People do not riot and plunder in their own ident- ity. Unless they are caught in the mob spirit, they will not loot and plunder as a mob does. To arrest the person who incites others to lose their identity and be caught in the mob spirit seems to be a reasonable method in curbing such actions. Justice satiersa a severe blow when the charge against Carmichael was lessened. Yours truly, Yow PAD Mrs. Walter Rich P * i —— a a es | |

Ellis Arnall, the most liberal of the candidates and a elec- tion favorite, said the was “sham “I denounce black power, ra- cial violence, insurrection and civil amarchy,” he declared. Stokely Carmichael, the 25- year-old chairman of the - mittee, who made famous the cry of black power, wag singled out for severe denunciation. Mayor Allen, clearly angered, said: “If. Stokely Carmichael ‘looking for a battleground, hed created one last night, and he'll be met in whatever situation he cares to create.” : However, some disputed whether Mr. Carmichael had created the battleground. Dr. King Comments The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., president of the South- ern Christian Leadership Con- ference, who was in Chicago today, ‘issued a statement through his Atlanta office. It said: “Tt is still my firm convic- tion that a riot is socially de- structive and self-defeating. On the other hand, while condemn- ing riots it is just as important to condemn the conditions which bring riots into being. “A riot is the desperate lan- guage of the unheard. What has America failed to hear? It has failed to hear that the eco- nomic plight of the Negro poor has worsened and that the promises of equality have not) been met.” The Community Council of the Atlanta Area, Inc., recently studied the area where the riot-. ing occurred and reported that the chances of an outbreak were “good.” It cited poor housing, dis- like of the police, few recrea- tion facilities and skepticism toward the city’s promises of help. Some residents of Summer- hill, the scene of the disturbance, met today to draft a list of grievances to present to the city, Committees will go from door to door to gather com- plaints, The Rev. Roy Williams, vice president of the Summerhill Civic League, contended that the student committee had “whip up hate”, yesterday. But he added: “I have told our city politi- cians we were sitting on a pow- der keg. Conditions here are some of the worst in Atlanta.” The scene of the riot is a deteriorating neighborhood that has almost completed a transi- tion from white to Negro.

How about let- ting me speak? I’m going to walk up Capitol Avenue to the stadium — and if you want to come, let’s go.” Negroes repeatedly asked the mayor, “Why are there only white people with shotguns?” The mayor answered, “In the first place we don’t need any shotguns, and I’m not here with anything. Ain’t nobody going to get killed and you know that.” ROCK CAR After the crowd refused to fol- low him to the steps of Atlanta Stadium and refused to hear him as he stood above them on the roof of a police car, the Negroes rocked the car and al- most turned it over. Allen was pulled down but he landed on his knees and climbed back onto the car. At one point, a Negro in a red shirt climbed on top of the car with Allen and pointed a finger into Allen’s face, spitting out the words, “Black power!” REPEAT CRY The crowd took up the chant as its leader brandished his fists un the air. Allen stood watching zrimly. A few minutes later the Cap- itol Avenue area was torn by gunfire, exploding tear gas bombs and flying bricks, sticks ‘and soda bottles. Allen still was in the midst of it, caught in a crossfire. As newsmen and police scam- |pered from the rain of bricks and bottles, Allen ducked behind the armored police riot trucks but minutes later was again ap- proaching Negro groups to dis- perse them.
