Berry Deputy Chief Administrative Officer Mayor's Off ice City of Atlanta Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear George: This is to acknowledge your letter of November 25, 1969, which relates to my letter of November 24 regarding certain contracts that have been entered into by the City of Atlanta Urban Corps and various agencies, connnissions, educational institutions and a comment I made in my letter of November 24 regarding the holding of payments for certain funds of the Urban Corps. The next to the last paragraph of my letter contains a mis-statement I would like to correct; that is to delete the wording "for income". This paragraph should have read: "In a review of my files, I do not have filed with this office an agreement relating to the number of interns the City is to receive and the consideration the City is to pay f or these interns. By a copy of this letter, I am asking the Accounts Payable Auditor not to process any payments of these funds allocated for the Urban Corps unt il this agreement is received." The letter to Mr. Ken Mi llwood was dictated on Saturday, November 22, and signed that day by me for delivery to Mr, Mil lwood on November 24. Your transmittal of the agreement was stamped received by this office on Monday, November 24 which is the day I was in New York. In your letter of November 25, you state: "Not withstanding the fact you had this contract in hand before your letter was written, your threat to cut off the Urban Corp's funds is highly improper". As I explained to you over the telephone on Tuesday, November 25, the agreement was not in my hands prior to dictating my letter of November 24, and I do not consider it improper to say that I am cutting off funds of the Urban Corps. As a matter of fact, I could make no payments to the Urban Corps under the contract until the contract was thoroughly executed and received in this office. If yot.rstatement had reference to positions that are established by Ordinances and on the payroll of the City, I can see your concern but this was certainly not the intent of my letter of November 24. �\ Mr. George J. Berry Page Two December 8, 1969 George, since our correspondence, we have received from your office the signed executed agreement on the Urban Corps, and we have also received a requisition for payment to the Urban Corps for the sums due them. This payment is has been processed and is in the hands of the Urban Corps at this time. I trust that this concludes this subject. Sincerely, Charles L.

The pr ivat e a g encies were a sked to p a y o n l y 30 % becaus e o f t heir l imit ed financia l po s it i on and in an e f f ort to keep t h e Urban Cor p s in a non- competit ive situa tion with t he colle g e s and u niversities . The Ci t y o f Atlant a h as been a nd is now an a c t ive s p onsor o f the Ur ban Corps conc ept . Th e summer Urban Corps p rogram was regarded oS a succe s s by b o th loc al a n d national f i gures . We requ ested the Citj of Atlant a to s h a re a larger part o f the c ost o f defraying a dministrative expens e s because it is the typ e of community activ ity a Ci t y g overnme nt should b e involved in . Al s o, qu ite f r a n k l y , the City can afford it . Th e City gains ben efit thr ough communi t y service, publicity ,_ and student involvemen t f rom the Urb an Corps pro gram in total , not onl y from the s tudent s who work directly with Ci ty department s . The reque st of $1 3 9, 69 3 c a n be vi e wed i n a different l ight than t he 50% -grant combination ou t l ined above . The administrative costs of the 1970 program will be $75,3 4 9. Being a City sponsored prog ram, the City could reasona bly e xpect to a bso rb ~ t h i s t otal cost. The remaining $64,344 can t hen be viewed as representing the City's �Memorandum George Berry & Charles Davis November 12, 1969 matching share of interns used by City departments. This cost represents 34% of the salaries of interns assigned to the City for 1970. ~n using this $64,344 in computing cost per man year, the result is: $64,344 for 44.1 man years= $1,459.02 per man year (The 52 man years quoted by Mr. Dan Sweat in his memo of November 5, 1969, is inaccurate because it does not allow for part-time employment. Using 52 man years, the cost is $1,237.39 per man year.) The cost to the private agencies participating is: 93 man years for $116,808 = $1,256 per man year. Accepting the algument that the City truly benefits from all the interns in the Corps, the cost per man year would be: \~1 man years-$139,693 = $1,042 per man year (This figure does not include the 31 staff members who in total will contribute some 17 full man years to the operation.) I believe these computations make the City's involvement more reasonable in compasison to that of the non-profit agencies. I feel the key point is not one of finance, but one of purpose. The Urban Corps, although it has involved financial ties, is not based on percentages of cost, cost per man year, or who pays how much. It is based entirely on service to the community and educational enrichment of the students. It would seem to me that it is worth at least $140 , 000 to the City to continue such an enterprise. - 2 - �ME MO R A N D U M TO : FROM: George Berry , Governme ntal Liai s on Charles Davis, Dire ctor of Finance DATE: Novemb er 12 , 1969 Ken ~illwood , Dire ctor SUBJ ECT : Ur ban Corps 19 70 Budget Proposal There s eems to be s ome que s tion a s to t he derivation of t he reques t for $13 9,69 3 tat t he Urban Corps has made of t he City of Atlanta.

Because of t h necessity of mak ing a brief pr esentation , I fear many of the i m ortant facts a out t e Corps were not voice.

These are only the quantifiable poten.tials of an effective Orban Cor ps program. The very real potentials of community benefit, educational enrichment, a counter-measure to student rad icalization, and the benefit to the individual student are also deeply rooted into the Urban Corps concept. As further clarification, let me say that t he budget ks for $75,349 to finance t he administration oft Urban Corps for one year. An additional $64,344 (makina total of $ 13916 3) is ne ded to meet the rity's share of the salaries of internc. working in city epartroents. (This cost represents 34~ of th se interns total stipend which is conparable to the 30 pai d by non- city agencies.) Thank you for your consideration of th's s ry and to the Urban Corps proposal .

The endorsement of the South ' s leading urban administrator lent invaluable credibility to our efforts. More i mportant to us locally, I personally thank you for the expression of support you gave me in the budget hearing the afternoon of that same day . I was unaware that I was to make the presentation until I was introduced at the meeting. Your assistance in clarifying some imp ortant p oints to the other gen tlemen present was e x tremely help ful. I believe y ou a re well aware of the success of the Atlanta Urb an Corp s so far, and of the benefits it can offer this City in the future.

One of the papers is a letter dated Oc-tober 17, 1969 from Mr. William R. O'Connell, Jr . to Mayor Allen , setti ng f orth c ertain stipu lat i ons fo r the cont i nuation of the Ur ba n Cor ps i n ternship pr ogr am thr ough Dec ember , 1969 . The problem appears to be whether t he above l etter mi ght be agr eed to and thereby become a contr ac t i n accordance with t h e terms of a resolution adopted October 6 , 1969 . In an effort t o unders tan~ the problem, I have examined your f ile on the Urban Corps and r ea d cons i der able papers . I am s t i ll no t c ertain t ha t I fully comprehen d it . The reso l ution a do pted Oc t ober 8, 1969 s tates that irthe Mayor is authorized to execute an agreement with the Southern Regional Education Board providing that the Board will assume all financial responsibility f or t he payroll cos t s of the Urban Corps f or the fall 1969 -. ,r The res ol u tion further allows the payment of not more than $8000.00 for interns that are used solely by the City . I do not feel that simply having the Mayor sign Mr . O'Connell's letter agree ing to . the terms therein would be sufficient under the circumstances. This is not to say that a contract cannot be raised �Mro George Berry October 23, 1969 Page 2 by the acceptance of a tetter or the exchange of letters, but such a procedure is more suitable for private persons than for public bodies. In order to satisfy the requirements of the resolution of October 8, 1969, an agreement containing specific details is necessary. At the same time, the document should be in the nature of a formal contract, not solely for the sake of formality, but for the sake of clarityo According to my understanding, it appears that SREB officials had some objections to a proposed contracto It might be that some other approach will he· acceptable to them and also satisfy the requirements of the resolution.

The Urban Corps is now planning for its needs, in terms of manpower, and financing for 1970. One critical need will be expanded office ·space. Our staff will include some twenty-five (25) people after January 1, 1970 (20 of which will be interns). We had fifteen (15) staffers this surmner and at that we were crowded. This condition led to a degree of inefficency and a lack of proper co~ordination o After January 1, we will need to use the room behind our present office. This space was previously used by the Atlanta Youth Council but is now vacant. We can house ten (10) or twelve (12) of our staffers in there (although they will still be cramped).

Apf'ro:dmately Interns were placed in 35 public interest non-profit agencies and 15 departments of the ~ity of Atlanta. Approximacely 45% of the students were black and 55% white. A ~yptcal example of a city department internship was a team of 15 students doing research and data analysis in the City fnnitation department. Others s~rved on the Mayor's staff doing research and another example was students compiling financial information for possible tax legislation in the City of Atlanta. The private public-interest agencies tended to utilize students more in the social and humanistic disciplines euch as counseling or working in recreation programs involving young people and actual communities. A typical example is an intern serving in the Emmaus House t eaching children from depriv"ed neighborhoods bas_ic reading skills and education courses during the summe r . Another exampl e involved ten students in a mentally retarded children I s c:9-mp S?onsored by the Decatur-Dekalb YMCA. Thi ~ su:nm-c!r our ope ra ting budgets was approximately $200,000 broken down a s f o llowr,< $52 , 000 Approprta tion from City of Atlanta $20 , 000 Southern Regional Education Board .. 1 j �$13,000 Private Business Contributors $75,000 College ·Work-Study Program (Grants from the Office of Education through Individual Colleges) Private Public -interest Agencies Volunteers in Service to America $20,000 $20,000 Approximately half, or 114 students, were spousored under the College WorkStudy program, which is a federally sponsored program of the Office of Education whereby the college pays 80% of the ' intern's stipend, with the agency involved supplying the remaining 20%. The College Work-Study progr am is available to every public college and grants vary according to requests and needs of the colleges involved. The student financial aid officer is in charge of these funds of each campus and can allocate them as he desires to " off-campus non-protit agencies " such as the Atlanta Urban Corps. This sununer we were fortunate in persuading financial aid officers to contribute heavily to the Atlanta Urban Corps, and evidently this figure will rise apprecialby next year. Interns salaries were $72.000 (1.80/hr) weekly for freshman and sophomores, $88.00 ($2.20/hr) weekly for juniors and seniors and $100.00 ($2.50/hr) for graduate students. We received 880 student applications for the summer program giving a very good indication that students are indeed very interested in participatin~ in summer internships and coll ege-c ommunity i nvo lvement programs . We received 300 reque sts from c i ty departments a nd publ i c interest-agencies requesting interns to serve as assistants during the summer. Unfortunatel y these position ' requests usually c an't be paid for at ful l cost by the agency, hence, the need for private donations for non-work-s t udy i nterns. We have alread y received over 75 requests for interns t o serve during the academic program. This summer the Urban Corps wa s administered by a student staff of 15 people whose abili t ies and dedication are directly attributable to the program's 2 �success. We started extremely late in the acade mic ye ar and ended up with a very substantial program involving numerous colleges and students. We were fortunate that much ground work had been done i n Atlanta and many of the organizations whose resources were needed had been involved early in the planning and understood the aspects of the program well. This was due to hard work done by many students in Atlanta . from various coll eges. A special note of thanks should go to Dave Whelan, Mark Dash and Rich Speer , whose early work in contacting the Board of Trustees and especially fund ra i sing later proved beneficial to the Urban Corps. We found that these students, through contacting various colleges, were primarily responsible for the h i gh number of applications we received with little ~ or no publicity. This summer the Urban Corps has administratively operated under the City of Atlanta and the Southern Regional Education Board, pr i marily f or contractural agreements purposes with the agencies and for le gal contracts wi th the colleges. A very large in determining administrative respons i bility was i n the que stion of who served as the paymaster. The Ci ty was most coope r ative this sum- me r in absorbing a de ficit spending s i tuation whereby i t abso r bed the cost o f the stude nt's st i pend unt i l coll e ge s could r eimburse them. Also , many agenc ie s we re tardy in pay ing the i r share of the studen t 's stipend. In some cas e s th i s meant a debt of $60 , 000 whi ch wa s carried ove r a t hree or fou r we ek pe r i od . Th i s is t he primary pr obl em in ut i l izi ng a group such as t he Boa r d of Tr ustees in ha nd • ling admi n is trative d ifficult ie s tha t ari se i n the Urba n Corps . I f t he Board o f Trustees had a large bank a ccount and could ab s orb tremendous deficits within a short period of time , no d iff ic ulty would ari s e. Otherwi s e, the City must be re- tained in some paymaster role or l egal role for contractural authority. (In my opinion, the Urban Corps as we know it today, should operate under its present sys tem through the summer of 1970 with the Board of Trustees taking ultimate control in September of 1970.) The financial and payroll p roblems incurred this : summer point to the need for extensive planning and lead time before the Trustees 3 �take over the Urban Corps operation. A special note of thanks should go to Dan Sweat, who helped us with space, payroll problems, contractural problems , and staff expenses during the inttial summer program. Unfortunately , those elected officials at City Hall do not com- pletely agree with Mr. Sweat. The City Finance Committee naturally closely scruntinizes our monetary requests. From a purel y financial point of view these members of the Board of Aldermen do, not agree thab we should have educational counseling as they put no emphasis on the educational aspects of the program. These financial people interpret the Urban Corps as a cheap summer employment program for summer months only. from the colleges and those This aga i n is an i ndication that more input is needed 11 educa tion' 1 spec trums o f the community . Naturally the ,more money that comes in from other sources the more autonomy we may have in making expenditures. From the first ideas of the Urban Corps to its actual implementations, there has been a tremendous emphasis on student input. Presently, we have a high deg re e of student participat ion in that all of our staff members are students. In my cpinion, student repreaentation·should be included on the Board o f Trustees, but these students should come from the ranks of those who have served as Urban Corps interns, rather than having student governments elect any ±nterested student to serve in that role. From operational experiences this summer, we have found that the program is best administe red by one individual re po rting to a small group of people rather than the original proposal o f having two people head the organization, one in the role of a student director and one in the role of the staff director. My sugge stion for continuing the student input is to make sure that the Director i s a young pe r son, p referably a graduate student h i mself and that the Board of Trustees function more closely to the Urban Cor ps . Presently, the Atlanta Urban Corps, Inc., exists only on paper. 4 The Internal �Revenue Service has granted the Atlanta Urban Corps, Inc., a tax exemption status. specific.

The Office of Education is presently implementing this guideline which means that next year the Urban Corps in Atlanta will absorb approximately $700,,000 of College Work-Study funding. We anticipate roughly 1;000 summer interns next year and 100 interns dur i ng the academi c year. We are also working closely with colleges in trying t o persuade them to grant academic credit with gu i delines to i nsure t hat educational .experieuce is indeed received. We are running into quite a b i t o f d if f i culty in the area of academic credit and welcome help fr om t he members o f the Board of Trustees. A very unique part of the Atlanta Urban Corps i s its Field and Education Staff. This summer this group o f students staf fe rs has structured seminars and visited with interns discussing urban problems as well as personal difficulties that may arise on the job. The Field and Educat i on Staf f should be an integral part of the ~Jrban Corps fro m now on, since it has proved so beneficial for the summer operat i on. Typical examples of seminars have ranged from speake r s such as Joe Bo one, Civil Ri ghts La ader in At lanta; to Members of the Mayor ' s Staff work i ng on Ur ban problems. We have t r ied to pick ,pe ople from all spec t rums of the urban sce ne t o give interns a good i dea o f what our problems are in Atlanta and what is being done and what should be d one ab out them.

A cata - logue of the s e re port s is availab l e for tho s e pers ons intere s ted and each report 6 �is on file in the Urban Corps office. The Atlanta Urban Corps has attained national prestige this first year due to the many people in Atlanta who were interes t ed in i ts succe ss. We have received unanticipated amounts of publicity from the local press to the nationally syndicated newspapers. We are the only program of our type which has been a b le t o obta i n suppo rt f rom the business communi ty, educational community, the government, and public service cormnuni ty. The greatest factor for success now rests with the educational and governmental sector. I urge those members of the business group on our Board of Trustees and other influential membe r s t o try t o persuade the new Mayor to suppor t the Urban Corps as much as Mayor Allen has. Also, we are i n desperate need of f unds as usual. Mem- bers of the business coummunity should help our student staff members i n raising these funds.

SWEAT, JR ., Direct or of Governm ental Lia ison Mr. John Cox E x ecutive Director Atlanta Children and Youth Services Council City Hall Atlanta, Georgia Dear John: Several weeks ago the decision was made that in order to get the Urban Corps Program established and functioning this summer it would be necessary to tie the administration of the Urban C c rps to an existing City ag e ncy. It was my recomme ndation that we use the Atlanta Childr e n and Y o uth S e rvices C o uncil as th e administrative v e hicl e for g etting the Atlanta Urban Corps underway. There was much pr e ssur e from the students and others to plac e the administration of the Urban Corps dir e ctly in the Mayor's Office and there has been much fe e ling all alon g that this is where it must be located if it is to gain th e str e n g th n e cessary to make it through its initial org a nization s ta ge s. I As w e have b e come mor e and mor e involv e d in th e l egal and finan c i a l m e chani c s of e stabli s hin g th e Urb a n Corps Pr o g r a m, it has become mor e appar e nt that w e should hav e g o ne ah e ad and ti e d it to th e Mayor's Offic e until such time as th e non-profit Urban C o rps organization can sta nd on its o w n. In vi ew of so m e o f the r e quir e m e nt s for contractin g a n d for g a1n 1ng progr a m s u p p o rt, it i s th e r e co m1ne n dati on of thi s o ffi ce , th e Cit y Attorn ey, th e D ir ect o r of Fina n ce that we g o a h ead and ti e· it t o th e M a yor's Offic e a t this poi n t . �Mr. C ox Page Two May 15, 1969 This sum.mer our payroll will total almost $270,000 which necessitates a special payroll account in the City's Data Processing and Finance Department. Since this account requires departmental sponsorship, that means all employees of that department would be tallied on the same le'dger and bank account which co~d confuse an already complicated system if lumped into a small department such as the Youth Council. The Accounting Department is creating a special billing department due to the size and number of checks to be issued. This can be done under no presently existing department since we will be billing other City departments and private agencies. In dealing with other City agencies, it is easier to influence their opinion and participation if they realize the Mayor is sponsoring the program. Also, this keeps us from inher itin g inter-departmental conflicts that virtually any department would have accumulated. C ontacting colleges at all levels is much easier from a formal relations point of view if it is done through the chief ~xe cu.ti ve' s office. This advantage can save us valuabl e time in Atlanta on certain campuses due to political problems. We will deal with six other government units in Atlp..nta at the hi ghest level; therefore, our base in Atlanta City G o vernment should be known and respected. Another point that keeps coming up from the students and others in the business and academic community is that 13 out of the 14 Urban Corps programs op e rating in the country are operating directly out of the chief executive's office of each city. The fourteenth agency is operated out of a Model Cities agency. Since you did not ask for th e program to be placed under th e Y outh C ouncil to start with and sinc e I hav e felt all along that we might have taken advantage of you and your staff by shoving this great a dm.inistrativ e burden upon you, it is our intention to go ahead and do w hat we should have don e in the fir s t place and plac e th e Urban C o rps under th e Mayor's Offi ce for th e ti1n e b e in g .

Since the program itself must cross into virtually every agency and department, placing its administration at the vortex of the city 1 s structure simplifies considerably the establishment of program guidelines and the enforcement of program policy. Also, students and colleges seem to respond more favorably to a program under the direct aegis of the Chief Executive. from the National Urban Corps Organizational Manual According to the National Urban Corps Office, 13 out of the 14 Urban Corps now operating are under the Office of the Chief Executive of each city. This summer our payroll will total almost $270,000 which necessitates a special payroll account in the city 1 s Data Processing and Finance Department.

These were accepted as a beginning set until the next meeting I feel it necessary to tell you that in my opinion these By-laws. which I hadn't seen prior to the meeting . are so poorly prepared that the task of revision is rather a task of starting over. I have advised Dr . Bloom . as Chairman of the By- laws Counnittee ~ of my feelings. I am also passing on to him what constructive comments I can. I hope you will do the same , The Urban Corps effort .is continuing under the leadership of Sam Williams and the student s who are giving so much ·of their time to it . A large number of students will be placed in community service positions this summer as a result of their work and an integrated educational program is being prepared .

V. ACADEHIC CREDIT - FELL0:1 1 S REPORT A basic feature of the program is that each Urban Fellow will be granted appropriate academic credit by his college or �-4- university, according to its own rules and requirements. As part of his assignment each Fellow will be asked to prepare a Report summarizing his year's work. The Fellow's Re- port should present an evaluation of his job assignment, a review · of his personal experiences, and an appraisal of the Program itself. Ideally, the Report should include a Fellow's original and personal insights and suggestions for cr :ange and improvemem'; -in a specific phase of government. VI. STIPEND Each of the twenty Urban Fellows selected to partici pate i n t h e City's Program will receive a stipend of $3,500 p l u s roundtrip travel expenses, from funds granted by the Al f r ed P.

Atlanta, Georgia ~30313 MEMORANDUM TO Persons Interested in Education and Community Relations DATE: April 30, 1969 The relationships between education and community service have been the topic of much talk, interest and activity in Atlanta for the past several months. A meeting at Emory University on February 28, bringing together some of the people representing agencies and institutions concerned with stu~ent involvement in community development , expressed the need for a continuing structure to allow coordination and cooperation among those concerned. This need has been explored by a group of those attending the Emory meeting and others and the result is this invitation to a larger meeting to review and act on a proposal for a nine-month confer ence on service - learning. Enclosed a r e a prospectus of the proposed confe r ence and a meeting agenda. The meeting to r eview the proposal and , if acceptable, to initiate the conference is scheduled for April 30, 1969 at Dean Sage Auditorium, Atlanta University, Atlanta Georgia. It will begin with registration at 9:00 A.M. The meeting will commence at 9:30 A.M. and adjour n at 4 :00 P. M. Please r ead the pros pectus and prepare your comments i n advance.

Kimmins Office of Public Affairs/South Region Peace Corps Portions of this paper were developed from materials prepared by William R. Ramsay of the Southern Regional Education Board , by Dr. Edward Holmes of Emory University, by Sam Williams of the Atlanta Urban Corps, and others. Atlanta , Georgia April 23 , 1969 �What we have to learn to do, we learn by doing. ARISTOTLE �THE ATLANTA SERVICE LEARNING EXPERIMENT A Proposal For A Conference The Atlanta area today is alive with the activities of many agencies , institutions, and individuals concerned with the full development of the area's human and economic resources. These activities cut across tradi- tional academic and bureaucratic categories and across traditional social and political organizations and are marked by new alliances including black and white, young and old, powerful and powerless. One of the new allian€es with great potential is the combining of community experience with education. "Service-learning" implies an involvement of students , faculty and practitioner in an arrangement which results in both service to the community and learning by all participants. Recognizing that such an arrangement requires this c ooperative action , and raises difficult questions that pertain t o both education and community devel opment, i t is felt by many that some agent should exist t o serve as a link between the various people and organizations concerned, and as a reposit ory of new experiences. But such an agent does not now exist, which merely reflects the fac t that the activities mentioned cut across traditional organizations of men and thought. Therefore, it is proposed to convene a Conference of interested individuals who represent the agencies, institutions, and other organizations that are affected by or involved in the development of both community and human resources. �The Confer ence will focus on the concept of service-learning for five basic reasons , simply stated: 1. Programs of all kinds are proliferating in response to pressing societal and human needs; 2. Existing development agencies need additional manpower; 3. Students have expressed a desire for more "relevant" educati onal experiences , and are a large pool of well-trained, of t-unused manpower; 4. Educational institutions are reaching out into the community for ways to become more vitally involved in its affairs; and 5. The human and institutional resources exist side-by-side in Atlanta with progressive attitudes which , properly coordinated , can achieve a broad pr ogr am of student intern involvement in service-learning opportunities existing in this metropolitan area. The Conference shall be convened for a nine-month period , extending from April t hrough December, 1969 . I ts purpose shall be: to c ombine the resour ces of institutions and agencies concerned wit h t he rel at ionships bet ween service experi.e nce and higher educat ion in an exploration and development of a conceptual f ramework and pract ical model f or service l ea rning programs for universities and communities. The Conference will provide a s tructure for reflection and exchange among participant s in various community and educat ional programs over the nine-months period. Careful study combined with actual i nvolvement in programs will result in a comprehensive picture and plan for servicelearning in community and on campus. �Participation in the Conference will be extended to any agency or organization whose activities have a bearing on the component concerns of service-learning, or which has a vested interest in the successful outcome of an experimental program in service-learning. In the Atlanta area, where the Conference will have its focus, it is envisioned that the following groups or institutions will be wellrepresented in the body of Conference participants: Students There are more than 30 ,000 college or university students in Atlanta area institutions Educational Institutions Agnes Scott College, Clark College, Emory University, Georgia Institute of Technology, Georgia State College, Morehouse University, Morri s Brown College, Spelman College, Oglethorpe College, and the University of Georgia Governments The City of Atlanta, Fulton and DeKalb Counties , the State of Georgia, and the Federal Government as represented by regional headquarters of HEW, HUD, CSC , OEO Peace Corps , VISTA , and others · Other Institutions and Organizations The Atlanta Urban Corps , the Georgia Mmicipal Association, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools , the Southern Education Foundation , the Ford Foundation , the Southern Consortium on International Education , the YWCA, the Concerned Citizens of Atlanta , and many others from the public and private sector Operation and Function of the Conference on Service-I.earning Any experiment , and especially one dealing with an indistinct , newly-conceived project such as the Atlanta Service-I.earning Experiment, comprises many component concerns. The concept of service- learning �involves many functions which are not easily compartmentalized. However , the following are seen as fairly distinct components of the service-learning idea: 1. the service dimension of service-learning 2. the learning dimension of service-learning 3. curriculum design 4. inter-institutional relationships 5. institutional and agency structure , or re-structure , for service-learning 6. financial resources and needs 7. research , of university, community , and agency resources 8. models and programs, existing and foreseen 9. a guiding philosophy for service-learning programs For the working study of these concerns , it is proposed that the Confe r ence create wor k groups , each undertaking to ex plore in depth and produce a report on their assigned area. The collected reports f r om the work groups would be presented in December 1969 at the summary meeting of the Confe r ence . To a ssist t he work groups and the confe r ee s in thei r study, t wo methods would be employed in additi on to work group meetings . I. ~ Practical Laborat ory: t he At l ant a Urban Corps An on-going practi ca l implementation of t he se rvi ce-learni ng concept on as wide a basis as possible in t he Atlanta area during the summe r of 1969 i s al ready begun, unde r the spons orshi p of several groups (joining to form an Atlanta Urban Corps). This operation shall serve as a practical laboratory , whereby the �Conference, through observation and conclusions, shall work towards a continuing service-learning program for the Atlanta area. Furthermore, the Conference will serve as the repository of information gained through experience with Atlanta area service-learning experiments. Similarly, the Conference , because of the collective expertise of its participants , will be a major resource to service-learning groups throughout the summer of 1969. The participants pledge to commit as much of their creativity, time, and resources as possible to the successful completion of a summer of experimentation in servicelearning. II. M:>nthly Conventions of the Conference Monthly sessions of the entire Conference will be convened , at each of which one or more of the component concerns will be the topic of study. Each work group will have an opportunity to "chair" a session of the Conference , and guide the discussion as it sees fit to focus the attention of the entire Conference on its particular component of service-learning . Each work group will organi ze its assigned session , calling in whatever additional r esource people needed to explo r e the topic of concern. ~~ Groups The Conference will f unction pri marily th r ough i t s work groups. membership will be drawn from the body of Confe r enc e participants. Their Work groups will marshall the available re sources , implement the ideas and concepts , guide the progress of the Experiment , coordinate its operations , �study its component concerns , and make recorrnnendations based upon their experiences towards the creation of a comprehensive model and a continuing operation in Atlanta. Individuals , appointed from the Conference participants , will be designated Chairmen of the work groups. The Chairmen will see his work group's assignment is successfully studied and reported to the Conference. Chair- men will have as co-workers other participants in the Conference who agree to serve on his work group. It is proposed that the following work groups be formed: 1. A Service Work Group 2. A Learning Work Group 3. A Curriculum and Inter-Institutional Work Group 4. A Research Work Group 5. A Financial Work Group 6. A Models and Programs Work Group 7. A Guidance Work Group (a steering committee) The membe r ship of the Guidance Work Group shall consist of the Chai rmen of the othe r six work groups , and the Director of the Confe r ence. The membe r ship of the other work groups will be r esolved at the Apr il 30, 1969, Confe r ence Convention. Although t he Chai rman of a par ti cular work gr oup wi ll i nevi t abl y repres ent one of the part i cipating agenci es or instituti ons of the Confe rence, this does not imply domination of that work group's study by the vi ewpoint or vested interests of the Chairman's agency or institution. It is assumed that the membership of any particular work group will consist of individuals from several participating agencies or groups, as their interests and manpower resources allow. �A Timetable It is ervisioned that the Conference be convened on a monthly basis, beginning in April 1969. Following is a suggested timetable for Conference consideration of the components of service-learning: April 1969: first Conference Convention; orientation, general discussion of the Conference proposal and the agenda; and assignment of work group chairs and membership May 1969: a general meeting on Service-learning and the Atla~Experiment; a national meeting of concerned people with the Atlanta participants , to generate national and community interest and to publicly initiate the Conference June 1969: a discussion of service and learning July 1969: a discussion of financial needs and resources ·August 1969: a discussion of curricula, and inter-institutional relationships September 1969: October 1969: a discussion of research considerations a discussion of models and programs November 1969: a discussion of the philosophy of servicelearning, and preparation for final reports December 1969: a summary meeting �Conclusion Although admittedly imperfect, as is the nature of foresightful programs, it is believed that the structure outlined in this paper will at least get the Atlanta Service-Learning Experiment under way in a reasonably workable fashion. It is intended that the reader view all the above as designed for flexibility. Needs will undoubtedly be met on an ad hoc basis as we learn of them. But this is a start. We commit ourselves as individual and group participants in a large-scale , serious approach to meeting important and immediate needs of society. We, like the students who undertake service- learning, must learn by doing. �The following information is provided as background to this proposal: I. II. III. The February 1969 Emory Conference on Service-I.earning The Atlanta Urban Corps Developments in Curriculum Design at Emory University • '-. / �The Emory Conference On February 28, 1969, more than two dozen men and one woman, representing educational institutions, government, and other agencies, met together for one afternoon at Emory University. Under the leadership of William Ramsay of the Southern Regional Education Board, they initiated a discussion of several aspects of service performed by individuals in the public interest , and of the educational dimensions of that service. Models for the service concept were as varied as the SREB intern and the volunteer in Peace Corps or VISTA. Participants in the Emory Conference agreed that such service both contributes to the community , welfare and the students' education , and that it should be encouraged on a large and institutional scale. Indeed , many participants felt that it is not only in the gene r al interest to encourage such commitment , but i mperative to do so. They agr eed further that programs could and should be created by colleges and universiti e s to encourage the student population to commit itself in greater pe r centage s to national or international se r vice with st rong educational support. It was suggested that the agencies and insti tuti ons r epresented a the Emory Conf erence had the necessary powe r and r esource s to create such pr ogr ams in At l anta. As the day's di s cussion pr ogres sed , it became cl ear that the concerns of the participants we re far broader than service - l earni ng alone . According to their individual viewpoint, diffe rent participants felt that the concept of service-learning carried the seeds of solution to many modern problems. �stated, some of them are: student demands for more "relevant" educational experiences during the college years (a concern for the active student) society's needs for large numbers of concerned people who are willing to give of themselves to solve great problems ••• and the lack of such numbers (a concern for the passive student) polarization of the attitudes of racial, ethnic, economic, and national groups, demanding increased inter-cultural, or cross-cultural, experiences both within and between nations (the issue of peace) the insensitivity of established institutions to pressing needs for change; and the slow pace of institutional change versus the accelerating rate of social change and needs (the "Establishment") disagreement, especially by the young, with current social ordering of priorities in America (the crisis of values) It is noteworthy , too, that many modern spokesmen have eloquently addressed themselves to the same concerns. Four significant recent statements follow: Governor Daniel Evans, in his Keynote Address to the 1968 Republican Convention: The voice of youth has served notice that satisfaction can't be measured alone in dollars; that there is a need for service and contribution beyond the attainment of material success. If these goals require an investment in patience, then let us invest ; if they require money , then let us spend. �Eberly, Executive Director of ••• organizations should offer young people opportunities to perform needed tasks contributing to the welfare of others; to communicate across racial , social, and economic barriers; to develop a sense of self-worth and civic pride; to get involved; and to learn while serving. President Richard Nixon , in a radio address on October 17, 1968, during his campaign for the presidency: ••• school administrators (must) wake up to the healthy new needs of student participation and incorporate that activity into the learning process. Mark R. Killingsworth, a Rhodes scholar in economics at Oxford , in the NEW YORK TIMES of February 15 , 1969: ••• the National Commission on Technology , Automation and Economic Progress has estimated that the country needs some 5.3 million extra workers to bring public services -- medical care , education, welfare and home care , public protection , urban renewal and sanitation -- up to ' acceptable' levels. The energy and moral commitment of a gene r ation which ha s alre ady won civil r ights victor i es , gotten l ongoverdue educ ational reforms and blown a closed political pr ocess wide open is still available. When will we decide we want it ? The Emory Conference participants, and othe rs who will join the At l anta Experiment as i t evolves , t ake heart in the nat ionwide movement of thought that supports our sense of dedicati on and commitment. This sense of dedication and commitment to action was the overriding result of the Emory Conference. The participants called upon Bill Ramsay of SREB to work with an ad hoc committee toward the creation of some �framework that would marshall the resources in Atlanta to the They also felt that the City of Atlanta should be the focus and limit of experimentation at this time , with the idea that what is attempted here will be done in an atmosphere of open experimentation , searching for ideas of value for other cities, states, or regions. We should seek to learn not only what can be done here, but what can be done anywhere. Practicality demands an initial attempt of experimentally manageable scope. Also, it was felt that necessary resources exist in Atlanta, obviating the necessity to search far and wide for distant resources and support. � ' The Atlanta Urban Corps ,., I • \ ., (From THE ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, Saturday, November 30, 1968:) "Atlanta city government hopes to have an Urban Corps of up to college interns working for and with it by the spring semester. "Dan Sweat, governmental liaison director at City Hall , said Friday that the city is seeking to employ 100 under the federal College Work Study Program, and already is negotiating with college officials. "Sam Williams , president of the Georgia Tech student body last brought the attention of Sweat and Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr., to the of the New York intern program last spring." In the five-month interim since the publication of this article , an Atlanta Urban Corps has come into being . It is under the directorship of Mr. Williams , through a cooperative arrangement between the Atlanta Children and Youth Services Council of the City and the Souther n Regional Educat i on Board. Currently, the Urban Corps , with a strong student partici pation element , i s engaged in t he following operations: 1. Recruitment of st udent i nterns f or summer, 1969, f rom Atl anta campuses through a s tudent member Col lege Rel ations Board. 2. D=velopment of int ernship positions to meet agency manpower needs in the Atlanta a rea. Interviews a r e being conducted by students wit h department and agency heads t o es t abli sh valid intern posit i ons t o be f i lled this summer. It is expected that up to thr ee hundr ed pos i t i ons will be avai l able f or placement. 3. A search is underway to locat e individuals to fill approximately thirty-three permanent and temporary staff positions needed to manage and operate the Urban Corps. �Of the "Our young people and our cities can no longer afford to be The Urban Corps offers to students a chance to be in the mainstream of Atlanta's problems and potentials. " Descriptive and publicity materials, and the charter of the Urban Corps will be available at the April 30, 1969, convention of the Conference for examination by the participants. �Developments in Curriculum Design~ Emory University Dr. Edward Holmes, Assistant Dean of the General College, Emory University; and Phillip Rlopp , Director of Institutional Relations, Peace Corps, on April 9, 1969, met with department chairmen and faculty members in social sciences and romance languages to survey existing resources at Emory for developing service-learning programs. Beyond the single concern of university resources, they explored the possibility of creating a ·program of subjects in domestic and international affairs that would encourage and prepare the student for service in Peace Corps , VISTA, or Teacher Corps, or in other related voluntary service. Conversations on that day between Holmes, Rlopp, and Bill Ramsay of SREB led to a decision to pursue the question of Atlanta area resources relevant to such a program, and to a proposal for a resource survey. Accordingly, on April 15 , 1969, Holmes met with Robert C. Nelson , Director of the Southern Regional Office of Public Affairs , Peace Corps , to discuss in detail what such a survey would involve in terms of personnel for a contract between Peace Corps and the Southern Consortium for Internationa l Education , for Peace Corps to pr ovi de funds for such a survey. The fol lowing members of the Cons orti um read and agreed unanimously to the proposed contract: Dean Charles I.ester , Emory University ; Dr . George Part hemos of t he Uni ve rsity of Georgi a ; Dr . Robe r t St emke , Georgi a Institut e of Technology; Dean Richard Barksdale, Atlant a Universi ty ; and Dr. Ernest Ogrum, Georgia State College. On Apr i l 18, 1969, Dr. c. C. Mlrray, Act ing Di r ector of the Consortium, signed t he proposal and sent it to Peace Corps in Washingt on, D. c. Dr. Sanford Atwood, President of Emory Univer s i ty, has agr eed to provide office s pace for the survey i n the Cente r for Social Research. �Atlanta area educators are presently being contacted for references for a qualified individual to undertake the survey ; Peace Corps approval of the contract is expected soon. Dr. Holmes expresses his hope for the survey in these terms: "If this proposal is successful, a constellation of interests and resources will converge to make an outstanding improvement in the Consortium schools through the internship program with national and local agencies. By pooling all these resources, we can have a major impact on the awareness of problems and the pursuit of the solution to these problems, and on the discovery and application of manpower resources. "The human problems of our time must be treated in a serious way with all available resources in order to point toward a future devoid of destructive elements standing in the way of human development." �r April 18, 1969 Ar. Joseph E. Birnie President The National Bank of Georgia Post Office Box 1234 Atlan t a 1 Georgia 30301 Dear r . Birnie: We would like to bring to your attention what we consider to be one of the most worthwhile student-oriented projects we have seen in some time . It is called the Atlanta Urban Corps , and its goal is to use the great constructive energy and innovative spirit of college students in helping to solve the problems of our city. The students plan to do this by working within the frameworks of established metropolitan area governments . They will develop Urban Internships within these governments des igned to be challenging and sti ulating to the student. We recommend this project to you as being most worthwhile, both from the point of view of the governments involved and from the value of the education 1 experiences that each student in the Atlanta Urban Corps will have. We urge you to attend a breakfast on Tuesday, Apri l 29, at 9:00 a . rn ., at Rich ' s Tea Room on the Sixth Floor. The store may be entered through the Store for Homes or the Street Floor entrance. This breakfast will not last more than one hour, and that hour will be well spent . Sincerely yours, Edwin D. Harrison Ivan Allen, Jr. rh �URBAN CORPS BREAKFAST LIST April 29, 1969 Mr. Joseph E.

All of these young people are Master 's Degree candidates in their r espective fields. New York Fellows are assigned to agency heads and Mayoral assistants and given commensurate responsibilities . This program is a di rect parallel to the White House Fellows started by John Gardner under President Kennedy , Atlanta deserves such a program. In my opinion, these interns should be handled separately from the Atlant a Urban Corps since they will be year-round and will r equire special counseling and guidance only available f rom a source such as your of f'i ce .

Times drawing "The Negro built this nation; let's burn it to the ground!" thundered a delegate to a recent convention of the poor in Fontana. "We have found the only way to move the power structure," cried another, "is to tell them what will Times staff writer ] ones' s principal assignments are in the civil rights, welfare and poverty fields. happen if they don't meet our demands. The truth was proved in Watts." These cries of outrage, heard time and time again whenever the rebellious poor or less privileged gather, certa inly are discomfiting to members of an affluent society. They expose the latent distrust and hatred of the so-called "power structure"; they ring with undertones of terror and possible anarchy. But viewed with an awareness of other protest movements of history, they reflect the not abnormal outcry of a people suddenly offered a chance to vent their frustrations . Some of th e very people who have been the recent targets of vi tuperative attacks by the unsophisticated and uned ucated regard those outbursts as healthy. The Shriver Incident Sargent Shriver, who directs th e antipoverty war that has had much to do with releas ing th e angrv �place for gang leaders; and the WSO newspaper may fairly be called inflammatory in its constant and exaggerated preaching against the police for alleged brutality. In the SCLC offices, many of the staff members wear buttons bearing the legend "Anybody But Daley," and many of the local rights leaders joining hands with Dr. King are people who spend their lives trying to undermine the Daley machine politically. In these surroundings, Dr. King's non-violence becomes, at the best, confusing-to the white community and to the Negroes. Dr. King came into the city and took over a rights movement in which many of the activists had carelessly talked bruta lity and violence for too long. That talk had its effect and is still having it. Thus the riot clarified the argument over black power. The rioters knew that riot is the negation of civil order, but they have now found it is also the dissolution of all power, political, moral and economic. The trophy of r iot is destruction; but, when Dr. King rightly tells the residents of the ghetto that they have little stake in this society, he cannot easily convince them they should not destroy it. That is the logic of events, and it has caught Dr. King out, along w ith the rest of Chicago. Riot's triumph is death. Almost miraculously, there was little death in the riot here. Two-or three persons-died, killed by stray bu llets. One was a man from Mississippi and the other was a 14-yearold girl whose baby was stillborn as t he mother died. Considering the amount of shooting for three days, this toll is small. There were snipers everywhere. Wednesday night there was random shooting from the windows of a high rise city housing project, some of it aimed by neighbors at neighbors. Thursday night there was a spectacular gun battle between the residents of another high rise and the police. There were gun battles up and down streets. The mere number of weapons being u sed on both sides seemed incredible. Has the white community started now to arm itself against such another battle? No one will guess. Police officials keep a tight lip on the subject, saying they do not want to indu lge in psychological warfare. The youth gangs, both Negro and white, are superbly armed, but there is no evidence that they were conducting the gun battles. One is left with the uncomfortable notion that the citizens in general are well supplied with the instruments of death, and that the temperature of violence has r isen sharply a ll over the city as a result of the riot. It is certa in that the riot has frightened both Negroes and whites. The wide publicity given locally to the youth gangs-most of it enormously exaggerated-has terrified the old Negro leadership and many of the Negro church and community leaders. The same publicity, and the violence of the riot, have produced a noticeable rise of hostility among w hites against the Negroes and against the civil rights drive. The politicians, even if they had decided to make some concessions t6 Dr . King toward racial integration, are now severely constricted by t heir constituencies. Innuendo and Rumor In th e search for causes of the riot, meanwhile, everyone seems to be trying to ignore the solution to the great problems. They contin ue to rely on accusation, innuendo and even rumor as an excuse for not doing what must be done. The youth gangs ar e blam ed, and there is talk of subversive groups, without any reflection that in a well-ordered society a subversive group has not much of a chan ce, but that in a riotous situation it has every advantage. The politicans are blaming Dr. King fo r stirring u p trouble, but they know he is voicing real grievances; they just cannot believe there is not some kind of conspiracy at work, but they have little ev idence for one. It may be said fairly that they despise the man who has troubled their consciences. Dr. King blames the politicians for raising Negro hopes and then not ful filling them, but he himself has been singularly maladroit in finding ways to cooperate with them while allowing them to save face. He has deliberately ignored the fact that the politicians are elected by the white majority as well as by Negroes, and that the majority ranges ·from timid ly liberal to solidly r eactionary, that it can be led, bu t not pushed. Hard as Marshmallows Perhaps the only people who found their views and themselves justified in the riot were the teenage gang leaders who w ill tell you bluntly that all the adult leaders on both sides are empty, greedy and dev ious, and about as hard as marshmallows. If the people of the ghetto are looking for a purpose a nd the youths are looking for a hero-as one suspects they are-an honest man would have to tell them to look elsewhere; for the rocks and bullets and clubs that destroyed windows and buildings also demolish ed a whole structure of plaster saints, black and white. Without the saints, we are left with human beings to deal with the gut issues. The heroes remain to be made ou t of the violence and chaos. �OTIS CHANDLER PUB Ll ~ HE.R no ackno w l edgment necessary �REPRINTED FROM THE LOS ANGELES TIMES, SUNDAY, JULY 24, 1966 THE CHICAGO RIOTS \ llOLENCE WITI-IOUT A PLOT D. J. R. BRUCKNER Then, not that man do more, or stop pity; but that he be u;ider in living; that all his cities fly a clean flag . . . Poet Kenneth Patchen However, if a riot has any benefit, it lies in this, that it brilliantly illumi nates, for a moment, the logic of events: extreme violence tends to force the hands of people, and suddenly theoretical positions a nd legal principles all look quite different. What happened in Chicago is not very mysterious if one looks simply at it. Search for a Plot CHICAGO The worst aspect of a riot is that it causes an over-reaction in the community; the people panic. Revolutionaries have understood this since the ancient world and have sometimes used it to their own advantage. There are signs of serious over-reaction in Chicago to the riots that ripped up the W est Side from July 12 to July 15. Part of the panic is purely self-protective, of course. Political, economic and religious leaders of the community discovered in the midst of violence that they ha\·e less control than they would like, or indeed than they should have; and they found D. ]. R. Bruckner is chief of The Times news bureau in Chicago . they haYe less information than they need, to act. Civil rights leaders on the whole discovered much the same thing. A number of city officials and police officers, however, are responding to the demands of the white majority in the city, and are looking for a plot or conspiracy, whether it be one concocted by youth gangs or Communist-inspired groups, or by political hotheads. A lot of investigators are scurry ing around looking for this alleged plot, and, God help us, they may even find one. Any little old mangy plot, however crazy or ineffectual, will serve very well to salve the. conscience of the city. The fact is that the riot was aimless. There is an instructive comparison available to this city. Last month there was a considerable riot in the city's Puerto Rican community. Compared with the violence on the Negro West Side, the Puerto Ricans' riot was a model of order and purpose. Theirs was a violent demonstration against a breakdown of communication. There was a certain happiness about it at times, as when the crowds lifted a man who had been bitten by a police dog to their shoulders and paraded him through the streets as a hero. The Puerto Ricans are at least a community among themselves. After their riot their leaders attended public hearings and aired their grievances, and these were the same grievances one could hear any P uerto Rican on the streets talking about. Total U nhappiness What struck one about the riot among the Negroes was the total dissolution of a neighborhood of perhaps 350,000 people; the hatred not only against the white power structure, but against one another; the factions that battled against one another; the total unhappiness of it. This was not a happy riot, a nd even some of the boasting leaders of the teenage gangs admitted they were afraid. Afterwards, no one could fully define the grievances of the community. The riot was started by an altercation over the turning off of a fire hydrant. One's white neighbors who live out on the lakefront do not accept this explanation at all, but it is true. In the West Side ghetto a major riot can be caused by the turning of a wrench; no plot is n eeded and no reign of terror by gangs. Field workers from two city commissions working in the slums, others working for the YMCA, crusad- �ing pastors and some police all know that riots have almost broken out several times in recent weeks over mere rumors, the transfer of a fa vorite priest from his parish, or an arrest. This is not to minimize the organized aspect of the riot. There are gangs and they are a serious problem, and there are some revolutiona ry groups in the ghetto. But life in the ghetto is normally violent and brutal; it does not take much to set off a riot. The white man outside the ghetto can scarcely realize the power of a rumor on the West Side, for instance; his mind cannot take it in. He really does not know the life of the poor, Negro or white, or how suspicious that life is. At 3 a.m. July 14, in the mid st of the riot, a reporter was attacked by a large rat on a West Side street corner. Two teen-age Negro boys, returning, they said, from a riot fora y, beat off this beast with a baseball bat and a board, explaining they were happy enough to fight rats which are, on the whole, worse than w hite newsmen. Filled With Rats The slums are filled with rats ; rats are the manife st evidence of the inhumanity out there. They are eve ry wh ere, a long with the debris of demolished buildings, the dirt in the streets, the cheap bars. People grow up among the rats and li ve with them. Th e West Side is mostly the home of the Negro poor. In this it differs vastly from the South Side where perhaps 450,000 Negroes live ; many of them li\·e \\·ell , some live magnificently. On the West Side e\·en childhood has degenerated into gang warfare, extortion, intimidation, physical punishment a nd even occasional murder. Adult life is merely a n ex tens ion of thi s violen ce. In such conditions on e does not h a ve to explain riots by plots. May or Ri cha rd J . Daley, during th e riot, said there we re "outs iders" promoting the riot. Perhaps there w ere. But a ll those a r rested lived on the West Side a nd police di d not find the outs iders. Angry with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the mayor demanded to know from him "w hether other cities have no problems." P erhap s they ha ve, and Dr. King is indeed an outs id er. But last summ er th e mayor was face d with th e probl em of nuns staging a sit-in on the world 's bu siest intersection to protest the slum s, a nd they were not outs id ers. The may or's pouting is not dignified; it is childi sh. But it refl ects th e attitude of the white majority whi ch still elec ts him and w hi ch resents being jostl ed. In ra ce rela tions in thi s city, the bulk of the white peopl e treats th e mayor like a ser vant who is hired to br ibe th e minoriti es into civ ic order. Thus a riot produ ces a sudd en munificence from city hall, of hyd rant sprinklers a nd swimming pools a nd hou s ing projects. P e rvas ive Con ception Th is con ception of the may or's offi ce is so per\·asi \·e that even many Negroes h ave come to beli eve it, a n d t he lead in g Negro politicians, w ho a re pa rt of Da ley's De mocratic Pa rty machi ne , act ua lly enfo rce it . But the g ifts of city h all hide th e bas ic p ro blem about the l'\egro ghetto. The pr oblem is th a t most of th e peop le in t he gh etto simp ly do not sh are in any \\·ay in the life of t h e ci ty . Their ali en a tion is an eno r mous spir itu al wa ll built u p of uncountable and ancient indignities; it is the wall of the city. The problem is to break down the wall. Dr. King, when he opened his civil rights drive here two days before hell broke loose, thought he had at least part of the machinery to break down the wall. But the riot, which illuminated society's flaws, also illuminated some serious weaknesses in Dr. King and his approach. The first thing that became evident was that in Chicago Dr. King, the patron saint of non-violence, was leading a collection of local civil rights groups whose leaders include a few pretty violent people. This problem results from a structural weakness in the King method. Dr. King's Southern Christian Leadership Conference suffers from a lack of troops and thus it is plagued by indiscriminate recruitment when it enters a city. In a big city like Chicago, where there are 900,000 Negroes and only a percentage of these favor Dr. King, the flaw can be fatal. Little Influence Dr. King very quickly discovered he had little influ ence in the West Side community. When he walked the streets on the first night of riot pleading for non-violence some young Negroes laughed at him . When his aides showed films this past spring of the Watts riots to illustrate the danger of violence, some youths applauded. Youth gang leaders who met with Dr. King as the riots subsided on the night of July 15 said they might turn to nonviolence and again they might not. Some of these gang leaders told a reporter they had met several times with SCLC officials long before the riots, but Dr. King had no program for them , so the youths gave up on him. One of them called him a "hit-and-run m essiah. " His prestige suffered enormously in the Chicago riots. The Sunday before the uproar started, he had stood in Soldier Field and debated non-violence as against "black power " with none other than Floy d McKissick of the Congress of Racial Equality, the preach er oi black power. The riot cooled that philosophical a rgument permanently, on e gathers. For th e riot has turned not onl y the whites aga inst Dr. King, but the Negro power structure as well; and his ci vil rights movement he re is in immedi a te dan ger of passing into th e hands of the old-time politicians. Dr. King finds himself in the position of either becoming the high priest of all the poor and only the poor, or getting out, quickly. In either case, he has been pus hed-violently if y ou will-in the direction of the McKissick position, th a t Negro rights must inv olve Negro political power. Further, no matte r how much Dr. King protests that hi s Chicago drive is not partisan a nd not v iolent, the riot exposed clearly tha t many of the people around him are ve ry pa rti sa n a nd a few a re v iol ent. Violen t and Non-Violent One of his top ai des, t he Rev. J a mes Bevel, told alm ost 50,000 people at the J u ly 10 ra lly tha t "we wa n t the violent and the n on-violent to join w ith us." Tha t seems pretty straigh tforward . Among the pe rsons a tten d ing a con fere n ce with the mayor th e clay before the r iots started was Ch ester Rob inson of th e West Side Organi zati on , · a loca l civ il r ights grou p. R obi nson is n ot person ally a v iolent man, but hi s h ead qu a rters h as becom e a con venient gath ering �voices by financing community action programs seeking to involve the poor in the solution of their own difficulties, was shouted down in April w h en he attempted to address a conference called by the Citizens Crusade Against Poverty . At the time, he said a ha ndful of "professional demonstrators" were tryin g to make trouble. His attitude now, at least for publication, is that su ch confrontations are a positive thing. "It's time," h e says, "that the poor speak up for their n eeds." · Joe P . Maldonado, executive director of th e county's antipoverty vehicle, the Economic and Youth Opportunities Agen cy, who also has been subjected to insulting personal abuse, shares this opinion in essence. Governmental Confusion Infuriated by governmental confusion a n d political machinations which seem to dull the promise of antipoverty programs, the poor s trike out at anybody w ho represents the "powe r structure." Their more vocal m embers appear dete rmined to take over and make changes th emselves. Speaki ng of certain manifestations of the so-called revolt of the poor, J ames E. Ludlam, president of the Welfare Planni ng Council, a trad itional agency, told anti poverty board m embers that a vocal minority "grounded in militancy a nd confl ict" was trying to capture control of antipoverty programs. He said t h ese militan t elements are given to threats of violence, disru ption of meetin gs and " infiltration a nd subversion of staff decisions." Bu t the Rev. Wi lliam Hervey, director of the Department of Metropolitan Mi ssion for the Los Angeles Presbytery, responds th a t militancy is n ecessary in the fight aga inst "man 's mos t dehuma nizin g enemy-poverty." Old weapons cannot be used to fight a n ew war, argues Mr. Hervey, referring to the traditional welfare agencies. He agrees that many of those castigated by Ludlam are "grounded in militancy and involved in conflict ," but h e could not agree that their actions were totally n egat ive. One of the intriguing prospects in all this is that some of today's revolutionists, like others of history, w ill become part of the " power structure" themselves once they gain control. Then, presumably, they will regard t h emselves as " responsible" a nd will find themselves facing the fury of n ew revolutionaries. One man w ho believes the often-irresponsible accusations by the poor a re a n ecessary part of progress is Dr. J. A lfred Cannon , a UCL A neuropsychiatrist who works w ith a group ca lled P eople in Community Action. Dr. Cannon, a Negro, says, "Anytime you h ave a group of people who are relative strangers, on e way they have of testing each other might be through initial demands or angry confrontations. It's a way of finding out how genuine the other person is. "Often this kind of confrontation . . . paves th e way for more constructive, gentle exchanges. "Shouting at a public official ... is a demonstration that the poor a n d minorities have the strength and power to be able to challenge th e 'big chief.' This is very important, because they can see their effectiveness in some kind of action. It leads to a sense of worthwhileness and adequacy ... and a potency which the poor generally don't h ave." 'Feeling of Participation' This is the beginning, says Dr. Cannon, "of the poor man's _feeling of participation in his own destiny, a very importa nt strut in his h ealth." Bitterness over the fa ilure of the war on poverty to deliver immediate results, a nd disillusionment over the administration of welfare programs have ti:iggered a statewide-even a nationwide-effort by th e poor to organize. With the backing of the Univers ity of California Extension , the Sears Foundation, and two privately organized advisory agencies-the California Foundation for Economic Opportunity a nd the California Center for Community Development-a first California Convention of the Poor was held in Oakland in F ebruary. This led to the June con vention in Fonta na, attended by representati ves of slum tenant councils, welfa re recipien t groups and community action movements around the state. Out of t he Fontana con vention , Dr. Jacobus tenBroeck, a UC pol itical science professor and former chairma n of the State Social Welfa re Board, emerged w ith the task of g iving some organi zational sophistica tion to the more tha n 20 W elfare Rights Organizations w hich a re loosely joined in thi s movement. A convention is planned this fall to develop a legislati ve program, clearly aimed at mounting a lobby for cha nges in welfare and other laws affectin g the poor. Welfare Recipients Rema rkably, in view of widespread conviction among the gene ra l pu blic that most w elfare recipients wou ldn't work if th ey cou ld, some of the loudes t protests in recent W elfare R ights Organiza tion de monstrations were that the present system " makes it imposs ible for us to work our way off we lfare." " If you don't h ave poor people in on the soluti ons," says Dr. TenBroeck, "you misgauge w ha t the problems a nd their attitudes are. "They flai l, they shout, they a re quite unreason a b le," con cedes Dr. Ten Broeck. "Thi s is therapy a nd steam-valving. Unless you prov ide some way to let off their futility, we're s itting on a lid we ought not to s it on- as y ou see in W a tts. "It's not a matter of wh ether we enjoy it-bu t w h e the r we're going to make it possible for those wh o a re deprived t o cease to be dep r ived. "They want the rest of us to slide into the back ground as t hey get on their feet a nd get organ ized . And t hat's th e way it sh ould be." �June 19, 196 8 Mr .

It �A STATEMENT OF PURPOSE AND A PLAN OF ACTION FOR ATLANTANS CONCERNED ABOUT RIOTS, THEIR CAUSES AND THEIR CONSEQUENCES We, the undersigned Atlantans, are deeply concerned about the riots which have occurred in our nation with increasing frequency and with mounting violence! We are concerned about the consequences of continued rioting and believe that the deterioration of human relations could do greater damage than the loss of mater ial things if we fail to bring an end to the riots and. the conditions which spawn them. We commend to every thoughtful citizen who believes in law and order and in human progress the recently released Report of the National Advisory Commission on Civil Disorders. Whether one would agree absolutely with its methodology or the conclusions of the commission, we believe the report contains food for thought and suggestions for action which merit consideration. The report is a good point of reference and basis for discussion and action. We are convinced that neither studies nor resolutions nor good intentions alone will suffice. We believe that all of the religious leaders of metropolitan Atlanta should act now to bring an end to conditions in our midst which create despair, contribute to human degradation and fuel violence. We, therefore, commit ourselves to assist in the task of transforming our urban area that, insofar as our abilities and resources permit, we shall endeavor to respond . to this urban crisis and help create a city where there is personal safety for all persons and property and where there is reason for hope and opportunity for individual growth and dignity for every citizen. To do this, there are many things which we believe must be done. There must be a pooling of all resources - a coordinated effort by rich and poor, by affluent and depressed citizens, by leaders in religion and education, in business and the professions, in industry and labor, in government, and in all walks of life to meet our citizens needs in the following areas: Police Protection Every citizen is entitled to· be secure in his person and property and to fair treatment by law enforcement officials; and, in turn, eGCh citizen has a duty to obey the law and support and cooperate with police officials. �Education Every citizen must have the opportunity for equal educational opportunity - lmowledge of one's rights and duties, education for employment, and for living - the essentials to a society of law and order and human progress. Housing Every citizen must have access to decent housing. This goal adopted long ago has not been achieved, and there is yet to be obtained a climate in which every person will have equal opportunity for housing that he can afford. Employment There must be training for new jobs and retaining for other jobs in our changing technology, and there must be an end to discrimination against qualified persons based on sex, race, age or handicap. As we see it, we must create new attitudes even more than we need to create new programs, but both are needed! To establish new attitudes we must begin with ourselves, our families, our churches and synagogues. Therefore, we commit ourselves to an effort to: 1. Carry on mutual interchanges in our churches with ministers and layman of all races discussing these critical areas of concern. 2. Preach and give courses within our own churches dealing with these areas. 3. Adopt and carry out special projects which contribute to the betterment of conditions in each of the foregoing areas, and encourage such things as positive support for day care centers, low cost housing corporations, health clinics, and training employment programs. In order to develop wide acceptance of our stated purpose and our plan of action, we respectfully urge Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. to issue invitations to Atlanta's political, economic and religious leaders, and to citizens representative of all areas of our urban community to attend a meeting sponsored by the undersigned with the Mayor serving as host. The purpose of the meeting will be to achieve in the Atlanta u rbru1 - - - - -- - - - - �area an agreement on our stated purpose, and to arrange for a coordinated use of all possible resources. We seek a true and new commitment and to develop a simple connectional structure to carry out this commitment. We, by signing this resolution, do declare ourselves to be an inter-faith . committee, and authorize our designated representatives to visit the Mayor of the City of Atlanta and other local leaders of this area for the following purposes: 1. To offer the full support of ourselves as representatives of the religious community of the urban area for coordinated effort in meeting the needs of every individual. 2. To fund a luncheon for leaders and representatives of both races at which time we could hear from Mayor Allen his suggestions as to how all availab}e resources might be coordinated to achieve our objectives. 3. To support a call for broader ministerial and lay leadership in subsequent meetings and projects. 4 . And to offer ourselves for service on any Council or Committee dealing with these critical areas. Finally, we invite all citizens to join with us in a commitment to our statement of purpo se and our plan of action, and we ask the help of Almighty God in this endeavor to transform and redeem our entire urban area.

Some of the House proposals come close t o taking the long di s c re dite d view that the proper way to handle welfare is to insult the people who nee d it and try to push or scare them off the rolls. When Newburgh, New York, in 1962, proposed to cut off a ssis t ance t o recipients who refuse to take any jobs offered to them, it was exco r iate d t hroughout the nation for its medieval attitude. Yet the House-passed bill (H. R. 12080) has a provision that would authorize much that sort of treatm ent to depende nt . mothers and their children. When Louisiana sought to cut off-aid to mothers who gave birth to illegitimate children after going on r elief , the Department of Hea lt h, Edu ca t ion and Welfare ruled the plan invalid, Yet the House, by placing a cei li ng on aid to needy chil dren see ms to be t ryi ng, indirectly, to put i ts o wn limits on birt hs. The social security a mend m ents are now before the S enate and ii is h ere that we must concent rate our efforts for improvement s i n the 3 2-year-ol d s t a t ute that will make it responsive to the present needs of American society.

  • Text: Vibror Corps MEMORANDUN TO: George Berry, Governmental Liaison DATE: November 12, 1969 Charlies Davis, Director of Finance FROM: Ken Millwood, Director Zia SUBJECT: Urban Corps 1570 Budget Proposal There seems to be some question as to the derivation of the request for $139,693 that the Urban Corps has made of the City ef Atlanta. The budget was derived on a cash income ~- outflow basis without assigning specific usages of income to specific sources. In deriving this budget, we used income sources rep- resented as the following: (1) College Work-Study - 80% of salaries of eligible students (2) Agencies - 30% of salaries of interns they employ (3) City of Atlanta - 50% of salaries of interns they employ (4%) City of Atlanta - Supportive Grant This plan was aeagoetes by Mr. Berry as a method of deriving the City's financial participation based on services rendered. The private agencies were asked to pay only 30% because of their limited financial position and in an effort to keep the Urban co e & non-competitive situation with the celleges and uni- versities. The City of Atlanta has been and is now an active sponsor of the Urban Corps concept. The summer Urban Corps program was regarded a success by both local and national figures. We requested the City of Atlanta to share a larger part'of the cost of defraying administrative expenses because it is the type of community activity a City government should be involved in. Also, quite frankly, the City can afford it. The City gains benefit through community service, publicity, and student involvement from the Urban Corps program in total, not only from the students whe work directly with City departments. The request of $139,693 can be viewed in a different light than the $0%-grant combination outlined above. The administrative costs of the 1970 program will he $75,349. Being a City sponsored program, the City could reasonably expeet to absorb, this tetal cost. The remaining $64,344 ean then be viewed as representing the City's Memorandum . George Berry &€ Charles Davis November 12, 1969 matching share of interns used by City departments. This cost represents 34% of the salaries of interns assigned to the City for 1970. In using this $64,34% in computing cost per man year, the result is: $64,344 for 44.1 mam years = $1,459.02 per man year (The 52 man years quoted by Mr. Dan Sweat in his memo of November $, 1969, is inaccurate because it does not allow for part-time employment. Using 52 man years, the cost is $1,237.39 per man year.) The cost to the private agencies participating is: 93 man years for $116,808 = $1,256 per man year. Accepting the afgument that the City truly benefits from all the interns in the Corps, the cost per man year would be: \SI man years-$139,693 = 61,042 per man year (This figure does not include the 31 staff members who in total will contribute some 17 full man years to the operation.) I believe these computations make the City's involvement more reasonable in compasison to that of the non-profit agencies. I feel the key point is not one of finance, but one of purpose. The Urban Corps, although it has involved financial ties, is not based on percentages of cost, cost per man year, or who pays how much. It is based entirely on service to the community and educational enrichment of the students. It would seem to me that it is worth at least $140,000 to the City to continue such an enterprise. a §<

  • Text: December 18, 1969 Mr. Maynard Jackson Vice-Mayor Elect #5 Forsyth Street, N. W. Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear Mr. Jackson: As you know, the Atlanta Urban Corps is a student program now operating through the Mayor's office. The program is designed to offer students an avenue for constructive com- munity service while expanding the relevance of their col- lege education. The program has operated successfully since June, but is now facing a very uncertain future. The Atlanta Urban Corps is being caught in the squeeze of the change of City Administrations. For six and one-half months, (since June 16, 1969), the City of Atlanta allocated $76,000 for the operation of the Urban Corps. This money helped pay the compensation of City interns plus administra- tion costs. In total, the program involved 300 students in 1969. We were asked to plan and document an expanded and improved program for fiscal year 1970. Of a total budget of $650,000, the City was asked to allocate $139,000 for administration and City interns. The total program was de- signed to include 660 students, of which 220 will work for City departments. Mr. Milton Farris has decided to allocate $40,000 to pay both matching costs and administration. The matching costs alone will amount to some $38,000, if our plans develop as they should. Obviously, this will leave little to operate an effective program. Unfortunately, Mr. Farris is viewing the program only in dol- lar terms. I feel he has overlooked some important consider- ations concerning the Urban Corps. He has failed to grasp the importance of a meaningful relationship between the needs of the City and the potentials of the student community. It is wasteful to disregard the motivations, energies and abilities of the area students. We have plans and procedures to produce an effective 1970 program to build upon the documented success of our 1969 efforts. However, this serious budget cut, which represents only 28.5% of our original request and merely 6% of the total program cost, threatens to destroy the possibilities of the Urban Corps. Mr. Maynard Jackson December 18, 1969 Page 2 In real terms, the Urban Corps needs at least $50,000 for program administration. I am asking for your personal intervention before the budget is passed to correct this situation. Mr. Dan Sweat will be glad to discuss the pro- gram with you, and is able to illustrate the benefits of the Atlanta Urban Corps. Of course, I am available and welcome the opportunity to discuss the matter with you at any time. Sincerely, Ken Millwood Director KM: sz

  • Text: October 14, 1969 MEMORANDUM To: Mr. Ken Millwood From; Dan E. Sweat, Jr. Subject: Space for 1970 Urban Corps Program I have your memo suggesting the use of the room behind your present quarters at the auditorium for the additional space required if your 1970 program is approved. I agree that this looks like the best approach and will take it up with the committee of the Board of Aldermen responsible for the operation of the building. However, I think it would be a good idea while you are developing your coming year's program to develop some information on alternate space. You are aware that the present space is not ideal with the parking restrictions and lack of air conditioning... I would suggest that you investigate prices on privately owned rental space. Also, you might check with the Atlanta Housing Authority to determine if they have anything in urban renewal area that might be used temporarily. The Atlanta Board of Education might be another source. It will make our requeat to the Aldermanic Committee look better if we are able to say that we have investigated alternatives and this is the most feasible solution. DESJr:ja
