  • Text: Statement issued by Council on Human Relations of Greater Atlanta, Inc. 5 Forsyth St., N.W., Atlanta, Georgia 523-1581 September 8, 1966 The Atlanta community - Negro and white - will be making a sad mistake if it writes off Tuesday's disturbances in the southside as a plot of out- side agitators, to be dealt with by replenishing the police department's supply of tear gas. Whatever the immediate causes, the incident was another in a long series of warnings, that poverty and segregation breed conditions which cannot be solved through the personal courage of the mayor or the competence of the police to handle riots, neither of which has ever been in question. An editorial comment on Tuesday's incident says "the trouble followed the damagogic pattern the country has come to recognize since this is no longer one of those peculiar southern problems". Unfortunately the pattern is tragically familiar - slums, unemployment, poor schools, continued segregation and a police incident to spark it. Tuesday's violence by whatever name is regrettable and the Council on Human Relations of Greater Atlanta joins other citizens in the hope that it will not happen again. We also hope that the city will make full use of the courts to deal with any individuals or groups in the community whom they know to be perpetrators of violence but that at the same time it will intensify its efforts to alleviate the social and physics] hlight which inevitahly results in such unfortunate incidents, Cont'd -2- This incident has been repeatedly described as a riot, There appear to be as many different definitions of "riot" as there were spectators at the scene on Tuesday, numbers of whom say that it was not a riot. There was no looting, no shooting, no battles. Perhaps this was due to the competence of the police in preventing a riot for which they deserve the same praise as for stopping one. One newspaper reported that "by 4:20 p.m., the point at which the disturbance turned into a riot".. without any explanation of what happened at 4:20 to turn the disturbance into a riot. We urge the Police Committee of the Board of Alderman to prepare and make public a cornplete report of events as they occured so that they can be evaluated calmly and objectively. The question might he raised as to whether it was necessary to shoot in a residential neighbor- hood in themiddle of the afternoon to serve a warrant on a robbery suspect. Any charge of police brutality should be carefully considered, regardless of any brutality displayed towards the police. Whether charges of police brutality prove to be accurate or not, the fear of it is a real factor in the conditions which make for riots. The community might well take this as an opportunity to examine and evaluate the entire police reeruitment and training programs and the capability of the city to perform the veyvired police function with the present level of the police budget. As much as we deplore violence in any circumstances, the Council on Human Relations of Greater Atlanta does not accept the explanation that "SNCC members were directly responsible for Tuesday's rioting". SiCC members are not responsible for the conditions under which Atlanta citizens live in the Summerhill and Mechanicsville area. Cont'd ~3- SICC members were not responsible for threat of rent strikes in that area a year ago. -SNCC members were not responsible for street demonstrations in the area during the summer. SYNCC members are not responsible for people living in houses which the housing code finds unfit for human habitation. SNCC members are not responsible for children attending school half a day, in a building scheduled for repairs in the 1963 bond issue but which was by-passed. SNCC members are not responsible for parking space for 4,000 cars in the middle of an area which has no parks for children to play in (and to whom the income derived from the stadium is very remote). SiuCC members are not responsible for the recent incident in that same neighborhood involving police officers and the wife of a ballteam member, an incident which, rightly or wrongly, has been described by "responsible Negroes" as a white wash of the police department. SNCC members are not responsible for the policies of the Atlanta Honsing Authority which makes public housing unavailable to many residents of this and other areas in dire need of decent housing. SNCC members are not responsible for the fact that there is no Negro on the mayor's staff, or in any high position in a department of the city government. SNCC members are not responsible for the increasing disparity between employment opportunities for whites and Negroes and the fact that present trainings programs are hopelessly inadequate to close this gap. Cont'd -4- SNCC members are not responsible for maximum welfare grants which do not permit families dependent upon them to live in decency and dignity. SNCC members are not responsible for the fact that there is no public agency in any of the governments of metropolitan Atlanta with a continuing and professional responsibility in human relations and civil rights. SNCC members are not responsible for the fact that the leadership of metropolitan Atlanta has refused to acknowledge that these problem require continuing, professional attention, but has acted only in response to crises with emergency measures and has continually placed upon the aggrieved groups the burden not only of raising the questions but also of suggesting the answers. To ask residents of the southside now to list their grievances in the first place contradicts the theory that "SNCC members are directly re- sponsible", but more important it ignores the wearying succession of meetings and surveys and petitions of residents of that area and of other citizens during the past months. Such a request ignores the authoritative report of The Community Council of the Atlanta Area, Inc., on this and other blighted areas. It ignores the efforts of the Council on Human Relations of Greater Atlanta and neighborhood civic groups which resulted in the establishment of the Southside Day Care Center and other programs. It ignores the surveys and recomhendations ade by the various EOA citizen committees, before and after the establishment of the HOA Neighborhood Center. It ignores the requests of neighborhood leaders before the Atlanta Housing Authority and the Citizens Advisory Committee on Urban Renewal. Cont'd -5- It ignores repeated statements before the Atlanta Board of Education by parents of the area. Ti ignores the findings and recommendations of the Commission on Crime and Delinquenay. It ignores the continuous recommendations of the Atlanta Summit Leadershi p Conference since its organization in 1963, We make no claims that the solution to the problems are simple. The solutions are complicated and costly. They require changes throughout the entire metropolitan Atlanta area, and they do not lie in Summerhill or in the SNCC office. As each of us has had a part in creating the problems, so each of us must bear a part of the burden of solving then. Responsibility for dealing with these matters does not lie with "Negro leadership" or with "white leadership". It lies with "community leader- ship". These affairs are too complicated and too important to the future of the entire cammunity to be dealt with hy rsny rectally ar ecunamianlly determined segment. They will continue to plague us all until we admit that we are all equally involved. Only by our own defanlt will any outside group gain control of the destiny of Atlanta.

  • Text: STATEMENT BY IVAN ALLEN, JR. MAYOR OF ATLANTA _ Tt 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 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 3 y ta D 1 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 Deparime nt for their prompt response and handling of this situation. Peto —_ ae citizens of Atlanta, and especially the good citizens of Summerhill- Iam not talking from hearsay when I say that every citizen of Atlanta owes a debt of wholehearted gratitude to our dedicated police olricers, ior l was personally in the thick of the disturbance throughout ightful 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. t 1 om what Iheard with my own ears and saw with my own eyes of this melee, I feel certain that hundreds of normally good a aE = C1tizZ Si s 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 4. at * and the Georgi a 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 paece uw = he lives and property of innocent citizens in serious jeopardy.

  • Text: September 6, 1966 es We are here to protest the latest outrage in a series against the twelve Bhek people now held captive in the Atlanta Stock- | ade for protesting the dying of Black men in the racist illeg- al War in Vietnam. First of all, the twelve were seized illegally by the Atlanta Police as they demonstrated at the Induction Center in protest of the dying of Black men in the racist illegal War in Vietnam. They were subjected to a "KANGAROO Court Trial" under racist Judge T.C.e Little who prejudiced himself by saying that because he had a son in Vietnam who is fighting to defend the principles of this country he had to give the protestors maximum sentences. Thirdly, Dwight Williams was brutally beaten under the orders of Captain Redding inside the jail. Part of this beastiality was witnessed by William's attorney, Attorney Howard Moore. In keeping with this country's scheme to emasculate Black men, the ten men were forced to shave their beards and mustaches, We know of no law that Black men wearing beards violate. We protest the holding of Donald Stone and Simuel Shutz in the County Jail five days after their bond had been paid. We demand that the five days be credited to their sentences at the Atlanta Stockade. On. Sunday August h, we were not permitted to see Robert Moore and Larry Fox because they were in the hole. Both ‘ioore and Fox suffer from Hay Fever. Both had been assigned to work in @ dusty area which would only heighten their hay fever miser- ies. They asked to be transfered to a less dusty detail. Instead, they were thrown in the hole. This was on Thursday. Fox, who refuses to cooperate with the beastial and unjust penal system, has been on a hunger strike since incarcerat- fon, August 18, is The stockade physician a racist bigot who cannot deal with Black Men. Therefore if any of the group gets sick, there is no one to treat theme The group is completely isolated from the rest of the prisoners. We charge that this is a form of political harassement just as the illegal arrest and sadistic beating of one of our workers, Robert Weaver. We also note that the City Jail, Atlanta Stockade, and the Fulton County Jail are blatantly segregated in spite of the 196 Civil Rights Act. If these conditions are not corrected and we continue to get reports of cruel beastial treatment of prisoners, then we will have to return to earlier forms of demonstrations, including sitting in at the ‘fayor's office.

  • Text: STATEMENT BY: Sunday, September ll, 1966 MAYOR IVAN ALLEN, JRS I promise every citizen of At lanta that the full forces of the City government will be used to apprehend and convict the person or persons guilty of shooting and killing Herbert Vorner and the shooting and wounding of Roy Wright. I further promise and pledge that Atlanta will continue without any lessening of its efforts to eliminate racial discrimination and provide full and equal opportunity to all its citizens. I further pledge that in this city we will enforce the law and demand orderly and lawful conduct from every person. After having made these commitments to every Atlanta dtizen, and especially those who are here today and live in this neighborhood, I would remind you that Atlanta's efforts which have exceeded the efforts of any other American city to eliminate racial prejudice and insure the Negro citizen of equal rights and opportunity, cannot be accomplished or carried out except under the authority of law and order. These two are inseparable and neither can succeed without the other, With full realization of this, I assure each of you and every other Atlanta citizen that we will not tolerate racial discrimination, injustice, lawlessness or disorder. Neither will we allow to go unpunished those responsible for such deplorable and dastardly acts as were perpertrated last night. I am today posting a reward of $10, 000 for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or person s guilty of the shooting and death of Herbert Vorner and the shooting and wounding or Roy Wright.

  • Text: HISTOEY The Studer. Nonviolent Coordinating Committee—SC—was born out of the student sit-in rve: A conference at Raleigh, North Carolin: = Easter Weekend in 1960 formed the Tenvorary Student Nonviolent Coordinating Orumittee. At an Atlanta con- ference later tz year, officers were elected, programs ovtacd, and the “temporary” dropped. From 2n immediate concern with lunch counters znd zuvie theaters, SNCC moved into activity arnss the entire Southern Black Bek Particpztiar in the Freedom Rides in 1961 and 2 exoving sense of the depth of fear that shaci2a. most Negroes of the South convinced SNC! that some one would have to take the fredom movement to the mil- lions of disextznchised, dispossessed and degraded Nezocs of the rural South... SNCC DIP JUST THAT ... August, 1943, SNCC launched the Deep South’s first scaent manned voter registra- tion projeci .. choosing Walthal, Pike and Amite Counts: in Southwest Mississippi. Their drive devioped into a student revolt in McComb, tean to spread across the en- tire state and ciminated in the 1964 Sum- mer Project tht involved more than 1,000 volunteer WCrers. _.. October, 18xi — SNCC workers opened up Albany, Gecgia for the massive demon- strations that tclowed that year and have since organized novements in the surround- ing counties. ... January, 1%3 — SNCC workers came to Selma, Atsiama, and with the aid of local groups s?:the stage for the drive that resulted in the 1964 Voting Rights Act. ieee re , nl, aa? jek: on PROGRAM _SNCC’S grass-roots approach is designed to - ... build indigenous, trained leadership . . . in small communities and urban centers of the South, in high schools and college campuses .. . SNCC workers organize and aid local and state wide movements, some never identified as SNCC projects. This is part of its program to in- sure a continuous committed movement across the South. ; This program has captured the idealism and imagination of students and adults all across the, country, and today, more than 150 SNCC field workers are engaged in the always dangerous, often dreary and tedious work of organizing peo- ple in the most difficult areas of the South... . Mississippi — Southwest Georgia _ Central Alabama — Eastern Arkansas SNCC field secretaries receive subsistence salaries when funds are available, but at times have chopped cotton and picked squash to secure food and a bed. They live in the community they work in, in the homes of local residents and in . freedom houses, for the weeks and months re- quired to break through generations of fear-en- forced apathy and despair. A SNCC worker's skills and drive help a community begin. Sus- tained personal contact, discussion and persuasion and his determination to stay with the job gives ..a’community confidence to seck and assert their rights and to make their own decisions. . SNCC voter registration drives and work on ’ Agricultural Stabilization Committee elections have begun to give forgotten communities a power - they can use-to build their own organizations and to help themselves . . . —the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party *. . . an independent political party which educates by its work ... . attempts to involve the disen- franchised in the political processes which are so crucial to their lives. : _-—the Poor People’s Corporation .. . “To _ assist low income groups in their efforts to re- ceive financial assistance to initiate and sustain self-help projects of a cooperative nature that are designed to offset some of the effects of poverty.” —the Mississippi Freedom Labor Union. . . farm workers in the Mississippi Delta working to improve economic conditions . . . ‘— Freedom Schools . . . community centers . - all these things mean a ray of hope for those - with no hope of help anywhere. “Meaeis Bs a %, +a! oe BS al ial lh ale a 4 ak y k é ow PT A, Sete nectend 1 { " tec ' 4X tap Gaol Dad hd Bab Pilea sonnpee yh)” wo a 2a, a BO re j x eer peh an eee eaerat eRe * 1 Fhe Me ays Pm pare 5, = e —_ topes, 4 _ ee es a ee Ty Bia i eel aim [

  • Text: The loyal members of the Atlanta Fire Department are providing fire protection for the citizens of Atlanta on a round the clock basis. They are working greatly extended hours over their normal work week of 60 hours. Of the 225 men on duty, the added hours has resulted in 40% more manpower. These men are well-trained and highly skilled, and are dedicated to protecting the people of Atlanta. As a result of this increase in manpower, beginning Tuesday four additional fire stations will be put into service on a 24 hoursbasis. These four stations will be activated day by day. Most of the sarrounding governments have reaffirmed our long standing Mutual Assistanct Pact of providing firemen and equipment should an emergency arise. Iam most grateful for this added help. In addition, the Atlanta Police Depafitment has provided men at each firehouse to take over many non-firefighting responsibilities; thereby relieving our skilled men of those routine duties. In case of an emergency, other city employees are on a stand-by basis to render clean-up assistance, I know all people of Atlanta will join me in expressing appreciation for this cooperation. Beginning Tuesday morning, the Personnel Department is accelerating its efforts to recruit people for the vacant positions in the Fire Department. Information concerning these jobs can be obtained by calling the Personnel Director at 522-4463. The City of Atlanta is well protected under this emergency condition and I wish to assure every citizen that this protection will continue and improve daily.
