The time is· coming when we will regret the billions wastecl in Vietnam. The time is coming when we may regret the · · number· of Negroes we have trained there in guerrilla war. There is hardly a city where the Negroes do not already dominate the strategic areas through which the affiuent comm(Jter passes on his way to the inner core. SNCCs hostility to the war is not disloyalty but wisdom.

Atlanta, Georgia 30315 OFFICE OF THE VICE PRESIOENT October 11, 1966 The Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr. Mayor, City of Atlanta City Hall Atlanta, Georgia Dear Mr. Mayor: I have no idea how many crank letters you receive, or how many people attempt to tell you how the Mayor's office could be run more effectively. This is not one of those letters . As a resident and an enthusiastic supporter of everything that is good for Atlanta and Georgia, I want to commend you for your forthright and courageous position in the current political quagmire. Your leadership in dealing with the problems existing in the Fire Department further d emonstrated to me that the offices of the Mayor were in very sound hands. As I sat, comfortable and secure, watching you on television being violently shaken from the rooftop of the automobile in the recent civil rights demonstrations, I couldn't help but wonder how many of your critics would have the " guts" as Mayor, to go directly into the fray in an effort to use the power of your office to restore logic and order to the city. I only hope that a situation of this kind making demands on your bravery may never recur. sincere respect and appreciation for the good job you are doing as the Mayor of Atlanta. My Sincere ly, EPS : mb �

  • Text: Tulsa, Oklahoma September 19, 1966 Honorable Ivan Allen Atlanta, Georgia De£r Mayor Allen; With all the criticism being levelled and all the news media play being given to your recent racial situation, I would like to take this means of expressing my approval (for what little it is worth) of the manner you and your city have handled yourselves. Presently living in Oklahoma, moving there from 4 years in Alabama proir to which I lived for 3 years in Chicago, I have a relatively objective -viewpoint regarding the racial issue geosraphically speaking. I have no .feelings one way ot the other regarding colors or races as such. However, I have learned to harbor very strong feelings with regard to rights v. s. responsibilities and so have very little regard for those groups, regardless of color, who would prefer to demonstrate and protest, rather than work for their objectives. While I feel there many people who symphatize with this view, I certainly had not seen it exemplified by many of our public office holders and political aspirants. For the most part they had capitulated to whatever radical demands that came along and actually allowed . themselves be "shook down" or blackmailed into giving in to demands just to quie~ the noise and minimize any political repurcussions. It was then, especially refreshing to see you exercise restraint while giving the radical elements a chance to quiet the waters on their own initiative, r efusing to talk until the waters were quieted, and then taking firm action when it was proper and driving home the fact that your city was above all else a city of law and order. I'm sure that the great majority of the citizens of Atlanta admired and respected your course of action. My only purpose in writing this letter is to let you know that there~ome of us in other sections of the U. s. who do too. When we have enough men of conviction in all the various public offices, rights and responsibilities will come in the same package and earned, not rioted for. Sinc~rely You5\// ~ - ~· t;/Y.;1-~~ t - - - : : i""'"'-.u.u. G. Vancil (_ �

' Sunday, September 11, 1966 I promise every citizen of At lanta that the full forces of the City g overnm.e nt will be used to apprehend and convict the person or persons guilty of shooting and killing Herbert Vorner and the shooting and wounding of Roy Wright. I further promise and pledge that Atlanta will continue without any lessening of its efforts to elirn.inate racial dis crirnination and provide full and equal opportunity to all its citizens. I further pledge that in this city we will enforce the law and demand orderly and lawful conduct from every person. After having made these commitments to every Atlanta cifi~en, and especialLy those who are here today and live in this neighborhood, I would remind you that Atlanta's efforts which have exceeded the efforts of any other American city to eliminate racial prejudice and insure the Negro citizen of equal rights and opportunity, cannot be accomplished or carried out except under the authority of law and order. These two are inseparable and neither can succeed without the other. With full realization of this, I assure each of you and every other Atlanta citizen that we will not tolerate racial discrimination, injustice, lawlessness or disorder. Neither will w e allow to go unpunished those responsible for such deplorable and dastardly acts as were perpertrated las t night. I am today posting a reward of $10, 000 for infonnation t hat leads to t he arrest and conviction of the person or person s guilty of the shoot ing and d e ath of He r bert Vorner and the shooting and wounding or Roy W ri g h t . �

  • Text: \1 ~~ September 6, 1966 4 We are here to protest the latest outrage in a series against the twelve B2ck :i:eople now held captive in the Atlanta Stockade for protesting the dying of Black men in the racist illegal War in Vietnam. First of all, the twelve were seized illegally by the Atlanta Police as they demonstrated at the Induction Center in protest of the dying of Black men in the racist illegal War in Vietnam. They were subjected to a "KANGAROO Court Trial" under racist Judge T.C. Little who prejudiced himself by saying that because he had a son in Vietnam who is fighting to defend the principles ot this country be had to give the protesters maximum sentences. Thirdly, Dwight Williams was brutally beaten under the orders of Captain Redding inside the jail. Part of this beastiality was wi tnessed by William's attorney, Attorney Howard Moore. In keeping with this country•s scheme to emasculate Bla ck men, the ten men were forced to shave the ir beards and mustaches. We know of no law that Black men wearing beards violate. We protest the holding of Donald Stone and Simuel Shutz in the County Jail five days after their bond had been paid. We demand that the five days be credited to their sentences at the Atlanta Stockade. on. Sunday August 4, we were not permitted to see Robert Moore and Larry Fox because they were in the hole. Both ·1oore and Fox suffer from Hay Fever. Both had been assigned to work in a dusty area which would only heighten their hay fever miseries. They asked to be transfered to a less dusty detail. Instead, they l.jvere thrown in the hole. This was on Thursday. Fox, who refuses to cooperate with the beastial and unjust penal system, has been on a hunger strike since incarceration, August 18. is The stockade physician a racist bigot who cannot deal with Black Men. Therefore if any of the group ge ts sick, there ls no one to treat them. The group is completely isolated from the rest of the prisoners. we charge that this is a form of political harassement just as the illegal arrest and sadistic beating of one of our workers, Robert Weaver. We also note that the City Jail, Atlanta Stockade, and the Fulton County Jail are blatantly segregated in spite of the 1964 Civil Rights Ac t. If these conditions are not corrected and we continue to get rep orts of cruel beastial treatment of prisoners, then we will have to return to earlier forms of demonstrations, in cl ud i ng sitting in at the :/fayor•s office. �
