Please send us a written statement of your follow-up action on outlined specifics as indicated in our discussions. Please request for us from Mr. Elrod and Mr. Sutherland a list of all job positions of the newly built and the origi- nal City Auditorium facilities, describing the respective job qualifications, duties and salary classifications in each. There is considerable unhappiness in the Negro community concerning the Model Cities Proposal, and the operation of Public Housing and Urban Renewal by the Atlanta Housing Authority. At this hour there is serious consideration of a delegation going to Washington to confer with Secretary Robert Weaver as a protest of what is considered bias, discrimination and violations of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. In your written statement of reaction, please specify among other things what steps you have taken to implement changes or amendments in Model Cities Proposal as agreed to include Negroes on the Executive Board, and other complaints including the exclusion of Negro organizations in the Proposal. Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. City Hall Page 2 May 17, 1967 We also request a statement from the Personnel Department on the status of Mr. Sterrs Johnson's appli- cation for employment in Civil Defense. Mr. Johnson has pursued employment in this Department for several years without success. We are informed that he has passed the required test, at one time we were told that he did not pass the test. Very truly yours, ATLANTA SUMMIT LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE JeSse Hill, Jr., Co-Chairman Rev. S. W. Williams, Co-Chairman Alderman Q. V. Williamson, Co-Chairman

  • Text: THE ATLANTA PUBLIC LIBRARY Atlanta 3, Georgia JOHN HALL JACOBS DIRECTOR May 22, 1967 Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr. Mayor of Atlanta City Hail Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear Mayor Allen: The news item in the Atlanta Constitution of May 11 has come to the attention of the Library Board. The article made the following request as presented to you by the Atlanta Summit Leadership Conference: "Desegregation of main library staff and desegregation and merit promotions in branch staffs." We would like to present our position to you. First the staff at the Main Library is not segregated. Ail positions in the Main Library are filled with the best quali- fied people we can get. There is a terrific shortage of professional librarians throughout the country and therefore we are pleased to employ trained people whenever and where- ever we can get them. Due to the fact that the salaries have been low and even yet are not too competitive, we are failing to attract graduates from either of our local library schools, Emory University and Atlanta University. As for the second part of the request, it has been the practice of the Atlanta Public Library for a period of years to advertise all vacancies first to the staff. There has been no situation in branch promotions where a qualified applicant has been re- fused a promotion on the basis of race. The branch staffs are not segregated. We feel that the Summit leaders have received a mistaken impression of the make-up of the library staff. Our motto has been and is to hire the best person we can get at all times for each job to better serve our community. Sincerely, VW. () VA Ue ; Robinson W. Schilling President, Library Board RWS: dw

I find that: The list for Equipment Operator I, which is headed by the name of a Negro who was referred May 10, 1967, but was not employed, still is headed by the name of the same Negro but that he waived certification with the Construction Department and is waiting for a vacancy in the Water Department. The Semi-Skilled Worker list on which the three top applicants were Negroes as of May 16 now has five whites at the top of the list. The promotional list for Equipment Operator I in the Construction Department on May 16 had two qualified applicants, both Negroes. One has been promoted and the other is awaiting a vacancy. The promotional list for Equipment Operator II in the Construction Department still has two Negroes who have waived certification for existing vacancies. They are waiting for vacancies in their present locations as they do not wish to transfer to locations where the present vacancies exist. Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. -2= May 31, 1967 The promotional list for Laborer II in the Construction Department now has eight Negro eligibles. There are twelve vacancies. I have acquainted Mr. Nixon with this situation, and he is sending Mr. Sojka to see me about it. Mr. Nixon states that he will take necessary action to see that there is no discrimination. The promotional list for Semi-Skilled Worker in the Water Department which had three Negro eligibles as of May 16 is exhausted. The three have been promoted.

Please request for us from Mr. Elrod and Mr. Sutherland a list of all job positions of the newly built and the origi- nal City Auditorium facilities, describing the respective job qualifications, duties and salary classifications in each. There is considerable unhappiness in the Negro community concerning the Model Cities Proposal, and the operation of Public Housing and Urban Renewal by the Atlanta Housing Authority. At this hour there is serious consideration of a delegation going to Washington to confer with Secretary Robert Weaver as a protest of what is considered bias, discrimination and violations of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. In your written statement of reaction, please specify among other things what steps you have taken to implement changes or amendments in Model Cities Proposal as agreed to include Negroes on the Executive Board, and other complaints including the exclusion of Negro organizations in the Proposal. Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. City Hall Page 2 May 17, 1967 We also request a statement from the Personnel Department on the status of Mr. Sterrs Johnson's appli- cation for employment in Civil Defense. Mr. Johnson has pursued employment in this Department for several years without success. We are informed that he has passed the required test, at one time we were told that he did not pass the test.

Sutherland I have reviewed the current status of registers containing the names of Negroes among the top three. I find that: The list for Equipment Operator I, which is headed by the name of a Negro who was referred May 10, 1967, but was not employed, still is headed by the name of the same Negro but that he waived certification with the Construction Department and is waiting for a vacancy in the Water Department. The Semi-Skilled Worker list on which the three top applicants were Negroes as of May 16 now has five whites at the top of the list. The promotional list for Equipment Operator I in the Construction Department on May 16 had two qualified applicants, both Negroes. One has been promoted and the other is awaiting a vacancy. The promotional list for Equipment Operator II in the Construction Department still has two Negroes who have waived certification for existing vacancies. They are waiting for vacancies in their present locations as they do not wish to transfer to locations where the present vacancies exist. Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. -2= May 31, 1967 The promotional list for Laborer II in the Construction Department now has eight Negro eligibles. There are twelve vacancies. I have acquainted Mr. Nixon with this situation, and he is sending Mr. Sojka to see me about it. Mr. Nixon states that he will take necessary action to see that there is no discrimination. The promotional list for Semi-Skilled Worker in the Water Department which had three Negro eligibles as of May 16 is exhausted. The three have been promoted. The list for Sewer Serviceman II (Construction) which had three Negroes at the top as of May 16 is exhausted. These three and one additional Negro have been promoted since that time. The three Negroes listed at the top of the Waste Collection Driver promotional list in the Sanitary Department and the three Negroes listed at the top of the Waste Collector II list (Sanitary) have been assigned to the extra board for the higher classes,and work in the higher classes in the absence of the regular employees. They will be assigned to permanent position numbers as soon as vacancies occur. My placement office tells me that we are not meeting the resis-— tance on the appointment and promotion of qualified Negroes that we once met, They state that the situation has improved greatly in recent months.

It just happens that I remember Mr. Johnson who was an ap- plicant 4% years ago during the time that I was Acting Civil Defense Director. It is my understanding that he contin- uously has sought employment with General Woodward since that time but that General Woodward feels that he does not meet his requirements. General Woodward has expressed the desire to employ a qualified Negro in his department, but he thinks that Johnson is not properly qualified. Sincerely, CARL T.
