ATLANTA, GEORGIA 30303 525-4262 C, O, EMMERICH ADMINISTRATOR October 3, 1966 Mr. Dan Sweat Mayor's Office City Hall Atlanta, Ga. Dear Mr. Sweat: Thank you for your letter of September 21, 1966, addressed to Mr. Bob Lynn, Extension Manager of East Central NSO Center, concerning traffic complaints in the Boulevard, N. E. (East Central) area. Because of our intense interest in these matters and the fact that we had no record of the complaints here at headquarters, I asked Mr. Lynn to send me a copy. There is enclosed a copy of his letter dated September 30, 1966 in response to that request. As you can observe from a perusal of the contents of this letter, there is still quite a bit of emotionalism involved in this situation which may or may not be shared by all or most of the r e sidents at this time. Consequently, it is difficult for me to maintain the objective approach that is necessary to obtain results, unless we are together on the basic facts. Please, therefore, compare the contents of Mr. Lynn's letter with your notes and advise me as to which of the complaints he refers to that the City might accept some responsibility for, even if there was no agreement upon, or understanding about them at the time of the conference. In view of the circumstanc e s, I would like to investigate those matters, if any , not agreed upon, so that complaints about them may be made to the proper agencies if they are found to be valid and soluble . Thank y ou for y our cooperation . Special Assistant f or Community Deve lopment JHC : p l c Enclosure �

  • Text: STATEMENT BY !VAN 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 Corrunittee {Snick) to _¢reate a-n 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 ealm exists throughout the area. The Atlanta Police Department is now working two twelve-hour shifts until furthe r notification by Chief J e nkins. All off-duty firemen have been placed on alert. The fir emen on duty during the night r es ponde d promptly a nd efficiently to several calls in the area. T h e s park of vi ole nce ignite d by a fe w r e ckle ss and irres pons ible indiv idu als t ouched off a n explosion of c i vil dis orde r that s hatte r e d A tla n ta ' s l on g r e cord of racial a mity. �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 SummerhillMechanicsville, can be justly proud of their police officers this morning. I am not talking from hearsay when I say that every citizen of Atlanta owes a debt of wholehearted gratitude to our dedi~ated 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 ;7out of their normal senses. They were victimized by those who sought to incite violence. We sincerely a pprec iat e the a cti on of Governor Car l Sa nders and the Georgia Department of Public Safety for the backup men and equipment provided to_us. It is a trag e dy that a f ew irresponsible and misdi recte d 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: ., Suite 1103 41 Exchange Pl., S.E. Atlanta, Ga. 30303 September 9, 1966 Mayor Ivan Allen City of Atlanta Atlanta, Ga. Dear Mayor Allen: The undersigned professional staff of intergroup relations _a gencies have long been concerned with the well being of our community. Thus the events of this past week dictate that we communicate with you relative to the situation,and our role in the amelioration of this and similar incidents which might occur. The two things which occurred this week must be of concern to all Atlantans. The first was the disorder on Tuesday, which we do not condone. The second is the response of the community to the disturbance. There has been in our opinion competent criticism of the violence and of those who supported it, for no one can countenance violence, the injury of persons and the willful destruction of property. the other hand, it would be tragic, indeed, if community consensus were to become arrayed against certain individuals and organization and thus become a substitute for a more constructive response to the conditions which brought it about. Ample data is available from other communities, that agitation to action is not possible in a vacuum. Nor is the Summerhill area unique. It could have occurred in any of a number of different places in our city, just as riots can and do occurr in other cities in America. For whenever there are deprivations and injustices those who would incite violence will find a ready response to their appeals. On If Atlanta is to spare itself from future disorders, the leadership of the city of Atlanta must focus on the real problems which face too many of its people: inadequate housing; overcrowded schools; under-employment; a lack of adequate recreational facilities; a dearth of public services to these disadvantaged areas; minimal enforcement of the city's building code. These are but a few of the general areas of immediate concern with many, many more that could be enumerated and which demand immediate attention and prompt action. The undersigned are prepared to lend their technical abilities and the full resources of their respective agencies to the City of Atlanta and to all of its people in an effort to develop a meaningful program for the city in the resolution of these problems. · · �Mayor Ivan Allen September 9, 1966 Page - 2 - We respectfully request an opportunity of an irnmediate meeting with you and such members of the Board of Alderman and your staff as you deem appropriate for the purpose of more fully exploring these problems, their ramifications and an immediate course of action to be initiated by the city in dealing with these complex and highly volatile matters. Respectfully, Paul Anthony (Executive Director, Southern Regional Director) " , } ,.,u Theodore Freedman (Southern Director, Anti-Defamation 'League of B'nai B'rith)

  • Text: Proposal for EXPANSION OF PERSONNEL TO IMPROVE SCHOOL ATTENDANCE IN DISADVANTAGED AREAS I. BACKGROUND The Community Council of the Atlanta Area, Inc., has been engaged in a study of social problems in urban renewal areas for the city as part of the Community Improvement Program. In September, 1965, a group of residents of the Summerhill-Mechanicsville area were brought together as a means of involving residents in the study of problems in their community and in planning to remedy these problems. The group adopted the name Mechanicsville-Summerhill Improvement Committee. The committee identified school absenteeism on the part of a large number of children in the community as a problem which should have first priority. It set about investigating the services established within the schools and other community agencies to deal with the problem of school attendance. Dr . Jarvis Barnes, Director of Research and Development, met with the committee and outlined the schools' plan to deal with this problem under Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act . Representatives of the committee met with Mr. O. L. Boozer, Director of Pupil Services, to discuss the problem. The committee met with the principals of the five elementary schools in t he ar ea. They provided further information about the absentee p r oblem. Lists of children who had been chronically absent from school wer e obtai ned f r om two schools. One listed 150 names, the other, 96. A sample sur vey was conducted in one ar ea to determine the incidence of the p r oblem and to i dent if y some of its c auses . During 14½ hours of ob servat i on , thirty• nine children were found with i n a five-b l ock area ; who we r e absent from school. The r ea s ons f o r absenc e varied from lack of money for clothe s and lunche s t o nega tive p aren ta l atti t udes towar d s chool attendanc e. Membe rs of the c ommittee made visits to the homes of these abs e nt ee s . The same r e asons - lack of proper c l othi ng, ca re of younger br othe rs and si s ter s, i nadeq ua t e super vis i on by pa ren t s - were f ound to be t he causes of non-att endance . • Handbills were devised by th e c ommittee , urgi ng parents t o send their child r en to schoo l and r eminding t hem of t he i r legal obl i gation to do so . The handbills we r e distributed t o children at school to take home . Repor ts f rom two pr incipals indic a ted tha t this wa s eff ective i n motivati ng some pa r en ts to see that their children returned to school . Some childr en were brou gh t in who had never a t tended school . Some par ents indicated that the y f e ared t h e y woul d r isk arr est if they did not send t he ir chil dre n t o s chool, although thi s was no t stated in the h andbil l . The committee is awar e of the multi ple p roblems of parents in the community. Ne verthel e ss, the committee has found that many pare n ts with these s ame probl ems are abl e t o get thei r ch i ldren to s chool if they are sufficiently motivat ed. The committee members strongly f e el that adequate enforcement of the compulsory attendance law would remedy much of the absenteeism. �2. There is presently in the Mechanicsville-Summerhill area only one visiting teacher to follow-up on school absentees. He is responsible for absentees in 16 schools, including approximately 10,700 children. Atlanta Public Schools has recognized in its proposal under Title I of Public Law 89-10 the importance of improving school attendance in disadvantaged areas. An original budget for 40 additional social workers has been reduced to 10 because trained professional personnel is not available. Many more workers are needed for adequate handling of attendance problems in the 40 schools located in disadvantaged areas. II . PROPOSAL The Mechanicsville-Summerhill Improvement Committee, in their home · visits, has shown the usefulness of non-professional, neighborhood residents for i mproving school attendance in disadvantaged areas. It is therefore proposed that a project be initiated under Title I of Public Law 89-10 to demonstrate the effectiveness of using non-professional, community residents to improve school attendance in disadvantaged areas. Such personnel would be designated "School Attendance Aides". A. Target Area It is proposed that two elementary schools in the MechanicsvilleSummerhill area be selected for this project. It is suggested that Capitol Avenue (Summerhill) and Cooper Street (Mechani csville) Schools would be the appropriate demonstration areas. The principals of these t wo s chools have expressed an interest in parti cipati ng in the p r oposed p r oject. B. Objectives 1. To r ed uce the number of absentees i n schools located in d is adv anta ged areas 2. To improve the r e l at i onshi p between t he school and t h e c ommunit y in d isadva n taged ar e a s 3. To demonstr ate th e ef fec tivenes s of us i ng neighborhood people in disadvan t aged areas as school a ttendance workers 4. To ameliorate the shorta ge of personne l in s chool social services 5. To give employment to people in disadvantaged areas who possess special knowledge and skills needed to work effectively in these areas 6. To obtain more adequate enforcement of the compulsory school attendance law �3. C. Method School Attendance Aides would be non-professional, neighborhood residents employed by the Atlanta Public Schools to work in sel~cted elementary schools. Recruitment of candidates for these positions would be done by the individual school principal, who would select people with the required qualifications from the neighborhood. Final decision on employment of School Attendance Aides would be left to the Division of Pupil Services. School Attendance Aides would work under the direct supervision of the visiting teacher or school social worker assigned to the area. Absentees identified by classroom teachers would be referred to the aides who would make contact with the parents of the child to determine the reason for absence. School Attendance Aides will be trained to make referrals to the appropriate community agency where there is a need. They would continue to work with the family as long as is necessary. Aides will serve as liaison between parents and classroom teachers to remedy problems that may be identified in the school situation. More difficult cases will be referred by the Aides to the School social worker. The school social worker (or visiting teacher) would initiate legal action to enforce the compulsory attendance law when necessary. Because attendance aides will be indigenous to the community, they will possess unique knowledge and skills which professional workers do not have. Aides will do much of their work in the evenings and off hours, when working parents are most accessible. Aides will interpret school regulations and requirements to parents in a manner that is understandable to them. They can do much to improve schoolcommunity relations - - which is a major problem in disadvantaged areas. D. Qualifications of School Attendance Aides 1. 2. 3. 4. Mature residents of the school neighborhood Sincere interest in children and their educational development Ability to get along with people and help them develop positive attitudes toward education Ability to understand and interpret school regulations and to learn to make proper referrals to community agencies Principals know individuals in their school community who possess these qualif ications . E. Functions of School Attendanc e Aides 1. 2. 3. Make follow-up visits to homes of absentees Work with parents of absentees to develop more positive attitudes toward the school and education Make referrals to appropriate health and welfare agencies where need is indicated �4. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. F. III. Inform parents of school regulations regarding immunization prior to school entrance, and other school regulations Inform parents of their legal obligation to send children to school regularly Refer cases to the visiting teacher or school social worker for initiation of legal action when necessary Seek out children in families new to the city and not in school Seek out truants in the neighborhood Training of School Attendance Aides 1. The training of School Attendance Aides would be done by Pupil Services staff of the Atlanta Public Schools. 2. Orientation of School Attendance Aides to community resources and instruction in referral procedures will be carried out by the Community Council of the Atlanta Area, Inc. BUDGET It is proposed that four School Attendance Aides be assigned to each of the schools selected in the target area - Four to the school in Summerhill and four to the school in Mechanicsville.
