September 12, 1966
CONFIDENTIAL
Mr. Dan E. Sweat, Jr.
Director of Governmental Liaison
City of Atlanta
City Hall
Atlanta, Georgia 30303
Dear Dan:
A committee called on me this morning along with representatives
from one of our projects suggesting ways in which our city might
help quieten our people. Rev. Albert R. Dreisbach, Jr. and a
young Negro Baptist preacher were the ones that did most o f the
talking.
The first thing they said probably the Mayor should do is to
quit playing the part of a hero. They are afraid he might be
hurt and it could cause a real riot.
They suggested that the Mayor quit telling the m about our great
city and what we hope to accomplish. This calls for a high
degree of reasoning on their part and at the present the people
are acting from emotional upset and fright .
They said the Mayor s hould stop calling on the Summit Leadership
and several l eaders such a _s Re v. Borders a nd Rev. King, Sr. He
claims the young people are not impressed and assume they are
speaking for the white people .
They further sugges t e d that the police try to be less aggressi v e.
�Mr. Sweat
-2-
September 12, 1966
They also wanted to know why the Georgia Baptist Hospital was
not used to help the boys in trouble. They also suggested the
Mayor quit blaming all of this on SNCC as there are a lot of
people that also dislike SNCC that are emotionally involved
and the more he persecutes SNCC at this time the more these
people will come to the aid of SNCC. At one time they even
suggested that they wished Carmichael was out of jail.
One of the main ·stories they were fussing about was that two
Grady ambulances came to the rescue of the police but almost
ignored the Negroes that had been shot.
The nex t thing they pointed out is that the Mayor has not
e xpressed great concern about the second Negro that is wounded.
This is what is bothering the community. Some think he has
died.
Frankly , these are things that most anyone could tell y ou, however, when I pressed them for positive things they could only
suggest five ideas which they think may work.
1.
Have the Mayor report often b y TV, radio and newspaper on his concern for the second wounded Ne gro.
Give as much proo f as possible that he is still
doing well, etc.
2.
Have the May or make himsel f available for some of the
members to come in and gripe to him . They feel at
this time some of these people need to ventilate (?)
on t h ei r own .
It would only mean the Mayor would
listen to some o f these peop l e and really let th e m
te l l t he t h e sto ry .
3.
Have t he May or i n vestigate why th e ambul ances did n ot
a rri ve to pick up t he Negro b o ys (i f t hi s is t r ue) .
4.
Try t o p ick up some quick succes s s t o ri es o f t h i ng s
that are b e i n g ac complished right n ow .
5.
Have repo rts come o u t o ft e n o n the det e ctives e fforts
on trying t o find the murderers . Let it b e known by
all the pre ss media that eve ry effo rt is being made .
�Mr. Sweat

September 12, 1966
I realize there is not a thing said here that you are not aware
of already, but since this was the consensus of the group I
thought I would send it on to you.
Under separate letter I am giving you a report on some of the
things we are now doing.

Dear Dan:
All of our project directors are holding staff meetings today
with an effort of coming up with ideas on how we might help
our City meet the present crisis. We will probably hold a
meeting between 5 and 6 this afternoon with our project
directors and Chairman of all our local advisory committees
with the hope we can find out from them what we might do.
If all this works satisfactorily I might want to have a Board
meeting tomorrow and then present the City with a series of
project requests which the Mayor might want to make to Mr. Sargent
Shriver through our local EOA committee.
We feel this might ·give us a chance to get sufficient funds to
do some of the things which might help the Mayor in a big way.
I will keep you posted as we move along.
Please do not have any more reports coming back that you are in
the hospital. This gave us all a big fright. We are all proud
of what you are doing.
Please e xcuse the hurriedly written notes .
Sincerely yours ,

being made to help b uild a better Atlanta.
If y ou will review the following s ugge stions whi c h were made
over and over again, I am convinc e d :re·, ,,,.:_ 1.. 1 als o recognize
that the grass . root leadersh i p a s w2 ... ... as t . . e Surnmi t Leadership was trying to advise how to stop the in ci den t and not to
cure long-range needs.
Recommendation s for E ergeney Actio
1.
A number of y outh i n th e Boul evard area d o not approve
of some o f the methods being used to call attention to grievan ces , wh ich have resu l ted in violence.
Accordingly,
they have organized t hemsel ves into the Boulevard Northeast Youth Counci l and would like to me€ t with some responsible City o fficials to discuss t hese gr ievances.
2.
Their immediate concern is i n regard t o recreation.
Succ esses evidenced . by the Summer Re c r eation Program and
Playlots have i n s pired them to seek a ction .
Sever al
vacant l ot s o n Bou levard offer poss i bil ities o f be ing
us ed for such pro grams which s h ould include faciliti es
for dances , games and other types of entertainment.
3.
There is considerable concern al so a bout funeral a rrangements f or ~ ulet Varner, Jr. , t he y oun g man who was k illed.
The y.:::,-:.;;.~1.9 people feel st r o ngly that the public o f fic ials,
as well a s
the community, s houl~ h ave an opportunity to
join the family of the deceased i n a mutual expressi o n of
grie f .
4.
The positio n o f the family , e specially the deceased y outh's
mother, i n being abl e to provide an appropriate burial is
in questio n and the interest t aken in. this matte-r is of
importance.
5.
Th e me mbers of the Youth Council· would lik e to have badg es
t o pin on new members and handbills to pass out which wou l d
show their interest in non-v i o l ence a nd g ood human relations.

6.
It is recommended that integrated police squad cars be
used in the area.
7.
There should be an investigation of t he Grady Hosp i ta l
ambulance service wh ich is reported to have failed to
pick up the two Negro y ouths at first but to ok the white
policeman. The results of t he investigation should be
publicized.
8.
Questions are also bJi ng raised a s to why t h e doors of the
Georgia Baptist Hospital,wh ich is nearby, were not opened
to the Negro victims of t he S aturday n ight shooting.
9.
Th ere are also q ue stions as to why there are n o reports
on the condition o f the se c ond youth , the y oung man who
was shot on Capito l Avenue and continued announ c ements and
steps taken to bring about justice in both cas e s. The
arrests o f suspect s hav e less ened the tension greatly and
especially the fr equent and wide - spread illewscasts in regard
thereto.
I
It took a great deal of digging f o r our local leadership to c ome
up with l o ng- range corrective measures. Basi cally they made few
emergency r e commendat ions that have not already been di scussed
many times by the lo cal adv iso ry commi·c.tees, the Citi zens Centr al
Adv isory Council and t he EOA Board. However, it was plain that
they stil l believe that their long-range answer to Atlanta's
problem is to bu i ld a great city which wil l give much effo rt to
accompli sh th e f ollowi ng.
1.
coop erat ion o f all majo r employers to bLild a ci ty whe re
equal employment opportuni tie s are a matt er of normal
c ou rse where every citizen ma y adv ance i n ac cordanc e with
his e du c ation, training , experi en ce a n d ability.
It wa s
clear in every meeting th at a dequ ate jobs and job opportunities were conside r ed probably t h e most important
recommendati o ns made.
2.
That the number and quality o f job training courses be
increa s ed s o that every u nemployed pe rson will have the
op po rtu n ity for advancemen t a nd for a good job.
3.
Th a t th e Atlanta educat i onal p r o grams co nt i nue to imp rove

Ralph Long, Principal of the Wesley Avenue Sch.ool, called and
suggested that someone get in touch with the school principals
at Howard High, Forrest, North Avenue and John Hope and get
them and the c o aches and others to talk to the students.
He said that the s e are the on ly p e ople that can r e ach the group
we are trying to reach and that the Summit Leadership, although
they are good men, do not represent these people and that the
students and others involved in the riots w ould not listen to the
Summit Leadership group.

Edward Moody called.
I located him at Eliza Paschall's office.
He wanted the Mayor to call a meeting immediately with department
heads and the Mechanicsville Civic Leag_ie and tell the department
heads and Housing Authority the things that they had to do immediately.
He said they were going to start a campaign to get the McDaniel
Housing Project built. They are going to start complaining to
the press.
He said they object to the Mayor meeting with the Summit group - that they never heard of what went on in the meetings and that the
Summit Leadership certainly didn't represent them in
M e chanicsville.

Mayor meeting with wrong people
2.
Got bondsmen - boys who made it out
3.
One problem - police - community relations - committee
to hear police brutality
�September 12, 1966
Arlie Schardt had two observations:
1.
Mayor will be a fool if he doesn't ban all cameras in the
area - especially TV - - the news coverage is 11 egging 11 the
people on and exciting them. He and other reporters (he
is sure) would be thankful for being banned - danger
involved, etc. However, they feel they must go in and
cover the story as long as they have not been banned.
2.
Mayor _is in increasing danger.
According to the news people, this week is really going to be a bad
week. One reason is because Martin Luther King is in town. He
is holding a meeting tonight and they feel this could be dangerous
simply because of the number of people involved. They feel if the
Mayor could offer him some way to save face without demonstrating
this would help. He needs an out without being labeled Uncle Tom 11 •
The
11
grass rooters made the following observations:
1.
They admire the Mayor for going to the scene .
2.
The Mayor's psychology would be much bette r if he would
go there and just liste n to the people and let them
enume rate their problems. They say he talks to the
people like a step father looking down his nose. He
doesn't talk to them like they are humans . He was very
badly criticized for leaving Foote Street Church yesterday
befor e the people could talk to him . They say he said
what he had to say and they would not stay and hear them,
sayin g 11 he had to go - he was a very busy man and had
things to do 11 •
3.
C o mplain of police brutality -- very rude to p e ople -- guns -- etc .

police officers received minor injuries, mostly as a result of tear gas.
Assessment of property damage has not been completed, but

bottles thrown through windows.

I m us t again c ommend the members of the Atlanta Police
Department fo r their prompt response and handling of this situation.
The citize ns of A tlanta, and especially the good citizens of SummerhillMecha i:iic sville, can be justly proud of their police officers this morning.
I am not talking from hearsay when I say that every citizen of
A tlanta ow es a debt of wholehearted gratitu?e to our dedicated police
officers, f or I was personally in the thick of the disturbance throughout
those frightful hours of mob hysteria.
No on e need make charges to me about police brutality during
this diso r der, I saw plenty of brutality, but it was being used against the
police officers, not by them.
From what I heard with my own ears and saw with my own eyes
in the center of this melee, I feel certain that hundreds of normally good
citizens were inflamed 5out of their normal senses.
They were victimized
b y those who sought to incite violence.
