ATLANTA - Street bar.riers admittedly erected to
create a "buffer zo'ne" between Negro and white residential areas have split Atlanta and placed it under an
uncomfortable spotlight as
the Nation's latest sore spot
of racial tension.
Although placed on only
two streets, the barricades already have fanned resentments affecting the entire
city.

Negroes are expected to vote
against a 43-million-dollar
bond issue this spring, possibly killing proposals f o r
schools and street improvements and a city auditorium.
Divisions also have appeared between white and
Negro
groups - creating
schisms which could wreck
civic harmony for years to
come.
The barricades, which are
emotionally-and inaccurately-referred to as Atlanta's
"Berlin Wall," were ordered
erected last Dec. 17 by the
board of aldermen to close
off two streets in southwest
Atlanta- Peyton and Harlan

zone" had been requested by
white residents.
The low, fence-like barricades of steel and wood
were placed across both
streets the next day.

of the Southwest Citizens Association, defended the barricades as a "last resort" to

THE ACTION OF PUBLIC WORKS COMMITTEE #1 RECOMMENDING CLOSING
PEYTON ANO HARLAN ROADS HAS SHOCKED TI-E ENTIRE NEGRO COMMUNITY
AND MANY FAIR-MINDED WHITE CITIZENS OF ATLANTA. 9l!ltr NOTHING

IN AN ERA OF WORLD WIDE CRISES SUCH AS WE ARE NOW UNDERGOING.

~ THE ATLANTA NEGRO VOTERS' LEAGLE UNAMIOUSLY AND UNEQUIVOCABLY
PROTESTS THE PASSAGE OF RECOMMENDED ORDINANCE. ~ p THIS PROPOSED
CRDINANCE WOULD DENY BASIC CIVIL AND PROPERTY RIGHTS TO ALL
CITIZENS BOTH WHITE AND COLORED AND WOULD SET SUCH A PRESCEDENT
AS WOULD DESTROY TI-E FINE HUMAN RELATIONS THAT HAVE EXISTED
IN ATLANTA ANO THAT HAVE MADE ATLANTA OUTSTANDING IN Tf-E NATION.

"FEBRUARY 28, 1963
· :THE BARRICADES DON'T 'WORK::
TAKE THEM DO'\'~JN
Last Friday night, one of the barricades on Harlan Road w~:2, .::
t~e target of vandalism. Somebody sawed through it ,and tossed
p art of it into a creek. We deplore this sort of thing. Those
barricades, however poisonous ·and hateful they are, should be
removed by the very agency which placed them there -- the City
of Atlanta, acting of·f icially and with deliberation -- not by a
bunch of race-baiters, do-gooders, or vandals.
Yesterday, it was learned that more property had been purchased behind what is becoming known as Atlanta's "Little Berlin
Wall" by a Negro real, estate man. So it seems, as we pointed
out some weeks ago, the barricades aren'oe doing the job they w-., ·- "!
supposed to do.
These barricades, in fact,. show the world th:1.-t. Atlanta is
losing its touch in maintaining good race relati-:.·;,.s . These
barricades are a visible mockery of some ni.r:~ wo :;:a;:; m :ce pr:1.nt ·".-3
about our city in Time, of all Magazines, t h .::.t At .: .c~,:.:. . is a
"city steeped in itz traditions but not mirP.d dm,"!l ; ) y them.
~l.'i"t~ s ·:
barricades are causing the forces of understc:mdins- 2.ri:S. ccIT'.raon
sense to split r ~nks and scatter, allied against e.~,.::,:1 e the r .
Ironically, it r:; ~ems, these barricades are openi::-.g ·;.:~;.:.· ::l'.)od gates for propagz.nda, hate, and hallucination unkmr!:·.~- t o the
Atlanta spirit.
11
And just what is the Atlanta "spirit?• Ivan Al.1·. :n, 0 c:..td.c-i .::
fa ther o-f our present Mayor -- once published a bo,=11~ 1,~'i:. 7.::. 1.v:~ ~.(f:.
he said the Atla~ta spirit was a combination of "altitud :2: :'·: . -'.1
attitude," a combination equaling greatness • . Wj_th a g,,.2~:: 1:1 ::: :;.~- h J.c.::.J.
location 1,050 feet above sea-level, making for goo1 rt?, ?. l t.~'1, a :.d
a political and soci'ological location betwe~n extra.!l.e-'3 ., '.'l'. :-:-.1'.: J.:z<J
for common sense, the elder Mr. Allen believed this Ai:~ ;::c::~t:
"spirit" was the key to future progress.
1
Thanks to the vision of the senior Mr. All.en, and t r.; o t'!'lc :cs
not the least o.f whom has been his own son, Mayo~-:: Ivan 'Al J :~':l
Atlanta has indeed enjoyed progress and greatness.
But now that's all threatened. Progress has come to a
standstill at Peyt9n and Harlan Roads. The barricades are up,
b ut they're not doing the job. They can't. It's time for the
Board of Aldermen to take them down. T;his must not be left up
to vandals and wildmen. It's the Aldennanic Board's job. These
b arricades have given Atlanta a black eye, and they must be
eliminated before the whole face of Atlanta is ruined. Take
the b arricades down -- and make it official.

WHITE MEN of the neighborhood came to the scene Saturday
afternoon and began to drag in
logs and bushes to fill in the
barricade, the resident said.
There were no Negroes at the
scene, the resident said, but police said reports had been received that Ku Klux Klansmery
were on their way shortly before midnight Saturday.
The barricades were erected
after white residents of the southwest Atlanta section complained
that they feared real estate agents
would attempt to sell white homes
· to Negroes.
""
Negroes already live nearby.
The barricades were to separate
· the white from the Negro section.

Angry residents of the Harlan
Road racial buffer zone chopped
down trees and underbrush Saturday night to fill in a hole in
a wooden barricade that unknown
persons made Friday, police said.
· Patrolmen were sent late Saturday after anonymous callers
reported that white people in the
neighborhood of Peyton and Harlan Roads, SW, were milling
around the remains of a barricade erected by the city to sidestep expected race tension.
The barricade was "sawed in
two" late Friday and "tossed into
the creek," a resident of Harlan
Road said.

We were informed tha KKK was going to plf.cket ha0 barricades on Peyton and Harlal:ld Bde.
Instead they picketed the residence of RoA Bright, 427 Peyton Rd. phone 75,5...a047o A
spokesman for the Klan stated Mr. Bright had sold his house to a negro. Mr. Brights house
is lcwated approximately one-quarter of a mile south of the barricade on Peyton Rd.
Four uniformed klansmen picketed the residence, while three stood by, resting one of the
four from time to time. It lasted about one hour, dispersiDg at 9:JO FM. ~he following
klansmen were identified: CALVIN CRAIG, W.E CLEAPOR, Rt. 2, Austell, Gao~ HAROLD LOUIS
COURSEY, l.617 North Ave. N.w •• RICHARD LEE POWELL, 145 Stroud Dr., J.D JOHNSON 1974 Maywood.

Later we (Capt. Little) went to 427 Peyton Rd. and talked to Mr. and Mrs. R.A Bright. Mr.
Bright stated that he had a call from the c.c Thornton Real Estate Co. Aild was told that now
was his chance to sell his house (he has been trying to sell his house for J.¼ years).
~eaving the impression that they have bought up several houses in that neighborhood. On the
second conversation with Thornton, he learned that he was a colored real estate agent 0 He
was then approached by Mr. Virgil CopelaDd. and Mr. Sam Massell, of the South.rest Citizens
Cooperation. At this time he rescinded any offer he bad made with ~hornton 9 and agreed in
writing to sell the house to The Southwest Citizens Cooperation.

�CONFIDENTIAL
Ivan:
I talked with Virgil Copeland this afternoon (2/22/63) and he
said that they were making plans to try to get the extention from
Bob Marchman.
. I delivered the message to him yesterday.
Virgil told me in regards to the sale of the Bright house on Peyton
that the man has signed an affidavit to the effect that Thornton
told him that he had other sales in that neighborhood, and that "
this was his last chance to sell and not lose money". Swouthwest
has an appointment with Judge Parham monday, that plan to draw
up the necessary papers and file the affidavit.
Parham told
them that with that statement, there was no doubt that they could
get the Georgia Real Estate Commission to suspend Thornton's
license.
• They are going to use this to threaten Thornton, to
get him to agree to sell the house back to Bright.
Another interesting comment Virgil made is that Southwest has
employed a new attorney . . . that they have proof-positive evidence
that there is a strong colusion between Cecil Turner and Empire
Real Estate Board to bust this neighborhood. . he said that Gene
Bennett is in on the deal.
. and they plan to expose the entire
thing. . . I asked Virgil to keep me posted and to furnish me the
name of the attorney they have retained.
Have you given any more thought as to how we can more ahead
on this thing? It sounds like to me that me might have a biger mess
on our hands.
Virgil also said in talking about Cecil Turner, that the attorney felt
they would be able to get the Grand Jury to indite him .

February 20, 1963
I talked with Bob Marchman and asked him to keep the conversation in
confidence.
. I asked him was there any possibility of postponing the
foreclosure for a month.
He said that he had postponed it twice for the benefit of the Southwest
Citizens Association.
. that they had been aware of this foreclosure
since last fall.
. and, in the best interest of his client, he could not do it
again under these circumstances.
Bob did say that if the Southwest Citizens Association was willing to come
to him with proof of sufficient money to buy the property, such as a statement
from a bank or commitment from a lending agency, which would be an
enforceable commitment, and they were willing to pay the costs of advertising
(which they said they were) he would seriously consider postponing til April.
He brought out the fact that should the house and acreage when put up for bid
be purchased by a Negro, he felt sure they would not longer be interested
in the 15 lots. • come April.

February 16, 1963
The Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr.
Mayor of Atlanta, Georgia
Atlanta, Georgia
Dear Mayor Allen:
This letter will confirm our telephone conversation of February 12, 1963.
On March 5, 1963, all of Mr. F. E. Bennett's property in the Utoy-Peyton Forest Subdivision wi 11 be foreclosed upon. We are put in the position of having to bid upon and
possibly purchase this property. Of course, we have no way of knowing who will bid
on this property or what price they intend to pay.
Subject property will be sold as two (2)separate groups; i.e., his home place with
approximately 15 acres, and 15 vacant lots. Foreclosure action on the home place and
acreage is being initiated by Mr. Bennett himself, through an employee of his. Foreclosure action on the 15 lots is being initiated by Phoenix ,. Inc., who holds a $26,000
mortgage on these lots.
The Southwest Citizens Association intends to bid upon and, if necessary, purchase
both groups of these properties. However, it would be of great advantage to us if these
two groups of properties were not being foreclosed upon on the same day. Since we cannot control Mr. Bennett's actions, we were hopeful that Phoenix, Inc., could be persuaded to postpone their foreclosure action until the following month. We would be
most happy to pay all cost pertaining to this postponement and would be most grateful .
Anything that you might be able to do toward persuading Phoenix, Inc., to postpone
their foreclosure action until April would be most appreciated.
Also, I might add that if wou ld he· of a'd diHbnal benefit to us if Phoenix, Inc., did not
notify Mr. Bennett that they intended to postpone thei r foreclosure action until next
month.
I will be more than happy to furnish you with any additional information that may be
required or to meet with the peop le at Phoenix, Inc. , and discuss this request.
�The Honorable Ivan Allen, Jro

I can assure you that every member of this organization is very grateful for your wonderful support and will be most appreciative of anything you can do tbw-(;lrd satisfying this
request.

�STATEMENT BY IVAN ALLEN, JR .
February 25 , 1963
It is the city' s responsibility to mark any part of any
road or street that has been abandoned by an ordinance of
the Board of Al dermen.
I regret that any one or any group has seen fit to take
the law into their own hands and tear down street signs or
barriers which have been erected in accordance with a
city ordinance.
This matter is in the hands of the courts and the city
will follow any court order. ··

the two groups with the most at stake and the ones most concerned.

He further added that he had not discussed it with either group.

Mayor Ivan Allen
City Hall
Atlant a, Georgia
Dear Mr. Mayor:
I appreciate d your answer to my lett er of January 3, 1963 re:
"The Atl anta Wall". I s a i d in my first l etter that I r eali zed that
my inf ormation concerning the events which lead to the erecti on of
this wa ll was such tha t I made no cla ims to knowing how best to
solve the basic pr oblem. Neve rtheless, I felt that the action that
had been taken had caused the "Image" of Atlanta to suffer enormously
in the minds of intelligent pe ople of good will throughout our
nation and the wor l d.
Your r esp onse po i nted out that were I in posses s ion of all the facts
I woul d agree with the stand that had been taken.
Since gett ing your letter I have tried to learn more ab out the
problems i nvolved and I woul d be t he last to minimize the:fa.ct that
the se probl ems are of great moment and not at all easy of solution.
Nevertheless, I would again re i terate that it is my consi dered
judgement that the kind of barricade that we have on Peyton and
Harland Roads will be a bl ot on Atlanta • s good reputation and I am
convinced that the sooner this blot is erased, the better for wr
future .
I hope that you wil l understand the spirit in which I make this
criticism. As one who is frequently accused of being a one man
Chamber of Commerce in my conversations with 11 furriners", both
in and out of Atlanta, and as a resident for fifty of my fifty-two
years, I w2.nt for our town only the best of all good things.
Warm personal regards.
Sincerely ~d fraternally y ours,
p(;_

Dear Mayor Allen,
We want to congratulate you on your most unique idea for
furthering the progress of integration.
The method you chose for enhancing this all i mportant cause
is, in fact, so simple we can see why no one had thought of it
befor_e .
By setting up the "wall 11 in Cascade Heights you gave your
bet ter citizens (both Negro and White) a common enemy, therefore
causing them to put a side trivial diffe r ences, join forces, and
fi ght for somet hing much more i mport a nt--the need for basic
s urviva l .
Whe n s uc h 'heces si ties 11 a s medi ca l aid, food delive rys, f ire
f i ght i ng equ ipment, and school buses a re prevented from going
their pr escribed round~ it is obvious tha t mere color di f fere n ces
will b e lost i n the shuffle to r estore conditions to what t he
modern s ociety is a cc ust ome d to.
We exp ec t to see your wa ll in Cas ca de Heights go down in
history with the importanc e of Khrushc he v ' s wall in Be rlin and
Kennedy ' s blockade of Cuba .
That is, just as Khrushchev f orwarded freedom by allying
the freedom-loving peoples against his wall , and just as Kennedy
forwarded peace by a l lying the p ea ce -lov i ng peopl e s against his
blockade, you, Mayor All e n, have f orwarde d integration by allying
the Negro and Whit e peopl e s of Atlanta against your wall.
Again, congratulations !
Wi th our admiration,
..6~

Monday Even in g , June 11 , 1962
'.
At approximately 7:30 p. m. Monday evening, June 11, I received ci"call fr om
a neighbor who reported h a ving seen several cars driven by Negroes entering
the dr.ive to the home owned b y F. E. B e n ne tt.
S in ce rumors had been circulating recently about the inte ntion s o f ce rtai n pe ople in the area to sell their
houses to Negroes, I decide d to i nvest igate the m atter .
_,,





.
t

-!- .,-
I called F. E. Bennett and he sugge ste d that I come over to his house ri ght
away. · Several nei ghbors w e r e info rm e d and we proceed e d to Mr. Bennett's.
As w e were arriving Mr . C a llaw~y , a Negro w as l e aving ; how e ver , two
_Ne gro e s h a d r ema ine d.
. · I
Mr. B e nnett imm e diate ly g ave the fo llowing a ccount as the r ea son for the
Neg r o e s presence:
"
.
Mr . B ennett stated th a t h e had pur chased pr o per ty re c entl y from
C a lho un Real ty Co mpan y and had gone out of t o wn before co mpleting
the transaction . He stated that upon return ing he fo und a business
c ar d st u c k i n h i s door w hich he glan c ed at and mistook for C alho un
Real ty Co mpany. S i nc e he had further business to t r a n s a c t with
Calhoun he called th e number on the card on Monday to make arrangements for completing his business transaction . The numb er he had
called was Callaway Rea l ty Co mpany, a Negro firm. Mr . Bennett
explained that Mr. Ca llaway, a Ne gro, wanted to come out and talk
to h i m regarding his pro perty i n Peyton and Utoy F o rest, Mr. Bennett
told him he was not interested. Mr, Callaway then informed Mr.
Bennett that his company already had two listing s in the area. Mr.
Bennett stated he asked to be shown the listings and that Mr. Callaway
said he would bring them to Mr. Bennett's house at 7:00 p. m. on
Tuesday evening. Mr. Bennett then stated he c a ll ed several neighbors,
including Mr, Baker and Mr. Ramsey, to have them present when
Mr. Callaway arrived: On Tuesday evening Mr. Callaway arrived
alone and stated he had brought only one listing and one of his Salesmen
was bringing the other. Shortly PJJ~r,eafter two N~gro es arrived in ,
separate cars. Mr. Bennett stated that the Negroes failed to produce
the listings. They said it would be bad business practice but said ; ~

they had the listings. The Ne g ,r oes further stated that one house was
on Ha r lan Road and one in Peyton Forest. This was the account given
as the reason for the Negroes presence.
As s t ated previously, when several n e ighbors and I arrived at the Bennett home
two Ne groes were still present. Mrs. Baker, Messrs. Bennett, Daniels,
Por te r, Kovas, Monnerat, Scroggs, and I discussed the situation with the Negro
salesm a n representing CaUaway Realty Company.
The Negroes insisted that they did not wish to go against what the majo r ity of
the people. in the area wanted .but that they were in business to sell real estate
anywh ere to anyone. They stated that if w e decided to sell contact Callaway ·
Re a lty Company. They also s a id that it was possible to work out a group
selling contract similar to the one us e d in the Wisteria Lane area.· The Negroes
kept insisting that they wanted o u r lis t in g s if we decided to sell.
We told t he m that ours was a wh i te neighborhood and we had every intention to
keep it white. One Ne g ro b egan s t a ti ng sta tistics of the ratio of Negro and
white population to Ne g ro and wh i te p r oper t y ar e a. He also said that Mr. Callaway
was asked by the o w n e rs to take the li s t i ng s of the two houses. The Negroes
were evasive a bo ut the t w o listing s b ut said the prices of the houses were $ 21,000

The Honorabl e Ivan All e n , Jr. , Mayor
City of Atlanta
Atl anta , Geor gi a
Dear Ivan:
Many thanks for your great as s istanc e Tuesday . The meet in g went much
better than we coul d have expected . I fee l very defin itely that this
fair i s a handle to promote many things . Wherever I ' ve tal ked, the fair
has been a most popular subject. Even the Met r opol itan Herai,{and. the
Northside News have given it fa vorable treatment! As I s t ated Tuesday ,
those bui l dings proposed - and urban r enewal f unds i n the upcoming bond
issue - c ould be Atlanta ' s contribut ion toward the fair . ( This was the
pattern in Seattl e.) If the fa ir is as popul ar an idea as it seems to
be it could be used to assist the bond issue .
In regard to t he other matt er we discussed , l et me say that while my
re~ction to Peyton Road wa s not f avorable, I did understand the truly
desperate situation that faced yo u. Basically I th ink the Mayor is
bein g placed in an impossibl e s it ua tion when he is asked to solve a
problem so deep-rooted in human emotions and history as Atlant a ' s
racial housin g . The government ' s t oo l s are so limited a nd those few
availabl e so full of politica l dynamite that any solution wil l Qake
enemies. It seems to me t hat the s t ory you have to t ell is important.
Yo u fell heir to a situation not of yo ur making and you attempted t o
lend your good offices to stabilizing a serious situation. In doing
this you sacrificed your own position for the good of the City. The
action t aken was drastic and distasteful, but the situat ion itself was
drastic and distast eful. Let some of those who are so aroused propose
solutions if they__hgv? them.
I
I
positive thoughts on the subject,

Hon. Ivan Allen, Jr.
Mayor, City of Atlanta
City Hall
Atlanta, Georgia
Dear Ivan:
Your courageous stand on the controversial closing of Harlan
and Peyton Roads is one to be greatly admired.
At a time when some forces seem determined to blacken the
name of the Southwest section of our city, the positive stand
taken by y ou and the Board of Aldermen g ive s the residents of
this area definite hope for family stabilization. Y ou have
shown you cannot b e s waye d b y strong political pr e ssures when
so many people have so much at stake.
The residents of the Cascad e area have invested heavily, both
financially and in hard work, to make this one of the finest
residential sections in Atlanta. Clearly, we are e ntitl ed to
protection from encroachment by a m inority group. That we
should be compe lled to l eave Atlanta for s m all-to wn o r suburban living is unthinkable.
We recognize that the majority should not subjugate the minority,
but by the same basic thinking minority groups have no right to 1
disrupt and destroy the existence of the community.
May I again commend you for your determined stand and your
untiring efforts to effect a favorable solution to this problem .
Very sincerely,

De ar Mr. Mayor:
As a Georgian (Dec a tur), I am much disturs ed that

Atlant a 's g o0 ti name in the rest of the c0untry. To
a large extent they negate the "Forwarcl. Atlanta"
a d s which have recently a ppeared in the Wall Street
Journ a l. Al l thos e responsibl e for erecting them
sh0uld fr ankly admit th e ir mistake and take steps
towa rd their immed iate removal. As you well know, the
pro~l em of Ne gro housing cannot be solved with
barric Rd es here a n d the re. One b a rricade c an only
le a d t o another until eventually you will a rrive at
the a cc omplished fact of a walle d in ghetto. Such
a s 0l u ti on is unthinkable f or the South's most pro gres s ive city. Atlant a h a s me t and surmount ed with
hon r many r ~cial challeng es du r in ~ the pa st de c ade ,

Dear Mr. Allen:
nzy-
First, I wish to thank you for your letter of recent da te regarding
service on the bi-racial connnittee for this area.
I realize the importance of such a group and consider i t an honor
to serve. However, I would like t o suggest, if I may, that consideration
be given to the formation by you,of a bi-racial committee f or the entire
City.
At this time I would like t o sincerely congratulate you on doing
such an outstanding job during your first year in office and I fully believe that you have made thousands of n~w friends in the Seventh Ward,
as well as the entire City. We, in this Ward, are very proud of the
way you have handled yourself in matters directly effecting us.
I sincerely hope that you have a very good and properous 1963,
and if I can ever be of any help to you, please do not hesitate to
call upon me.
Secondly, I would like to comment at this time on the plan and
program of rapid transit for the Atlanta Metropolitan Region.
A representative of the Atlanta Regional Metropolitan Planning
Commission delivered to me the very comprehensive report of the Study
Cormnission several days ago, prior to its release, and I have studied
it throughly. I am in accord with the recommendation one hundred percent, and would consider it an honor to have the priviledge servingm

I talked with Cochrane and he said that he war thought it was an excellent
statement, and commented about those in attendance by saying that Wood
is the vehicle through which Zenas Sears is trying to destroy the established
leadership.
He further stated that someone should give Zeasa Sears a
talking to, that the stuff he has been saying on WAOK is deplorable
He further restated that no action could be taken until after the League meeting
tonight (7 :30) but they will move quickly thereafter.
They are going to make
the following pitch to the league: We are not going into the merits or demerits
of the problem, but merely the right to negotiate about any problem.
He said that Walden would get in touch with MBL (probably Monda6) about
further proceedings.
As a parting thought, he said that he dm:kixx decided they should give some
consideration to your appearing before the league tonight for about 30 minutes,
since you had not spoken to them before.
I told him I would pass all of this
along, and if he w ished to make further comment about tonight, to call you back
this afternoon

�I regret very much that you have ta.ken what I consider
an
to be/ arbitrary position in the Peyton-Harland R oad problem.
The abandonment of the portions of these roads by the
Board of A ldermen and signed by me was for the purpose of stabilizing an
unwarranted condition in the Pe yton Forest area.
The closings exercised the
same restraint on all citizens and discriminated againat no one.
The right
of purchase and sale, access and egress has been denied no citizen of Atlanta
into any area of the city.
The Board of Aldermen reconfirmed their pos i t ion on
this matter last Monday.
It had been my hope that you as a group, taking the
position that you represent the entire Negro community, would discuss the
overall problem and work out a voluntary agreement that would help in protecting
the interest of all our citizens, stabilizing property values and eliminating the
unfair tactic
that have previously been used by

�MEMORANDUM
To
IAJR
From
AD
This is an effort to fill you in on what happen in the Peyton_harlan Road situation
since you left Wednesday evening.
1.
As a result of the 11 All Citizens rrmeeting the Atlanta Con stitution carried
a story Thursday mo ~: ning that there was a split in the Negro leadership and
that Leage and Empire would not send a repa,esentative to your committee but
just let the "All Citizensrr represent them.
2. Apparently someone was floating a baloon, because C. A. Scott was at the
meeting and carried the same story as the Consti.
3. Col. Walden called me Thursday morning and wanted to let us know the
story was 1 rerroneousrr and that he was issuing a statement to correct it. The
"corrected" story came out Thursday evening.
• stating that the League and
Empire would elect their own representatives, but would "support the main
objectives of the All Citizens Corrurnittee. rr •
• They were to have a joint meeting
of the three Negro groups Friday afternoon, after which Col. Walden would advise
me of the representatives' names.
4. Col. Walden, Dr. Borders both told me prior to the meeting that they thought
things were shaping up as you would want, and they felt sure the negotiations
could go ahead in spite of the barricade .
. the papers carried this same fee ling .
After the meeting Friday afternoon, that feeling did not pre vail, and the only
thing they have v olunteered to me is that the joint group v oted 26 - 6 to ask you
to their next meeting so they could 11 h_ear your side. n They are planning to have
their next meeting on Wednesday, probably at 3:00 p. m.
I am attaching the newspapers to wh ich I refer in case you
haven't seen them, and I call your particular attention to
Saturday's Consti and Gene Pattersons editorial.
5. To continue on the Southwest Citiz ens side.
. as I told you previously, Virgil
Cope land stated to me that they wante d to help remove the pressure on you and
would do anything necessary to help the situation. • even to asking you to take down
the rrwall".
6. When he came in, this was still the case, but they do not intend (at this point)
to recommend the re9pening of the road itself.
. and had phrsued the course
suggested by our Law D epartment of getting the individial property owners who
acquired the abandoned road to erect a fence.
Let me stop he re for a few additional points :
�a. First of all, the barricade is sitting on city
property as we do not 4ave the legal right to barricade
private property.
b. There are signs at both efid of both streets stating
Dead End 11
rr
c. It is the feeling of Newell ~ Edenfield that
our case in Fulton Superior Court will be sustained, but
that the City has no ri g ht to block off priv ate property
(the abandoned p!DIDtion) with a barricade.
d. The residents in that secition seem willing to remo v e
the w all, but w ant in some way to visually close the street,
since they say w hite people won't buy if it is close d and
neither wrotk w ill the colored people.
e. I personally feel that the removal o f the barricade w ould
satisfy the Negroes as it w ould rempen the street, at least
temporarily untlil the property o w ners decided to either plow
it up and plant it in cotton , or put up their own fence .
7 . The Southw est citiz e ns and express e d by Vir g il Copeland and Charles Edw ards
(and by the w ay, Edwards seems to be e x treme ly competent) are hurried in their
o w n individual probl e m of the protection of their hous e s and the necessity to close
or keep closed the road.
• they do not realiz e the terrific impact this has had
from the stand point of National publicity.
8 . In talking to both Copeland and Edw ards (and Bill Ho w land sat w ith us) I pointed
out this public i ty and the fact that we had two problems . • • (1) the emotional one
w hich make s n ew s because o f the barricade, and (2) th e probl e m of actuall y w orking
out a mutually satis factory solution.
• and said ~ to them that we should
r e mo v e the first problem in order to solv e the s e cond.
. the y xlrleac reali ze this
and w ill ~ p ii C7bably r e comme nt the 4 points which I ha v e m e ntione d to y ou :
1.
R e mo val of barricade
2,
Suppo r t o f r ez oning fo r hous i n g
3.
R e ques t e nding to blockbu s ting t a tics
4.
R erouting of stree t to f o rm the o rig i n al i d ea of th e d o u bl e
h or s e sho e.
9. I received the names of four groups, which i s a ttac h ed, but ha v e not heard
from Dr. M . L. Kingsr. as to t h e " e l ectedn repre s entati v es of the A ll Ctizens
Committee (w hich Col. Walden to l d me they li!.Oul d ha v e . ) I l eft a call for him
2
�Saturday 1x:llrn:x but he hever returned it.
letter to just the four groups.
Therefore I addressed the attached
10. The Southwest Citizens Association is having their meeting Saturday
night to decide what course of action they GO«XX would take and what they
will recommend.
• we will k n o w ~ Monday morning. •
11. Copeland will still wait to hear from this affice as to when the meeting
should be called.
• and Col. Walden and /or M. L. King Sr. will
contact you probably Monday to state the willingness of the All Ctizens Comm.
to 11 hear your side.
After seeing what Copeland has to present to the
bi racial group, we should let him know whether to
call the meeting as origianlly discussed for Wednesday.
or wait until you have met with the All Citznes group.
One thing important to remember is that the suit comes up in Fulton Superior
Court on Thursday morning.
• and should the bi racial group meet wednesday
and the white folkd recommend the removal of the barricade, then the court case
would be easier.
Another thought.
. if somewhere the decision to reopen the road is mutually
agreed, it would probably take a month to six weeks to do it.
. as the Land
Department will have to buy back the land (if they will sell it back) or condemn it,
it will have to go before the PW#l Committee and the Board of Aldermen.
Of course, this would be admitting a mistake, and a rerouting of streets upon
mutual agreement seems better to my meager-thinking mind.
Oh well, a ll of this is minor and will be satisfactorily resolved.
. w hat worries
me is the swimming pool situation which faces us shortly.
every national
news mei:lia with whom I have seen is rrjust waitingrr that should be the big story
of the year, they say.

�1. Col. Walden said that the article in this morning's Cons ti which said
that the All Citizens Committee would represent the league was erroneous.
that the League voted (with the support of Walden, Williamson, Wilkes, Borders
and King) to support the main objectives of the All Citizens Committee, but
they would represent themselves.
. this means we will have nine representatives
from the Negro Community.
Col said he would call me either this after noon or tomorrow and give me
the names of the three from the league, and we will probably hear at the
same time of the three from Empire.
. it will be Saturday before we hear
from the All Ctizens Comm as they meet Friday night .
. The league will
be in attendance, and Col. Walden said that they will have enough rig-ht thinking
people to make them go along with negotiations in spite of the presence of the
wall. He said Q. V. goes along with this also.
He further said that last night he and QV were given the authority to select
the three members themselves.
Mr. Scott called and is real conserned, apparently he got the same impression
as the Constitution did about having the All Citizens Committee repres e nt the
league, and wanted to talk to you about meeting with the Executive Committee
of the league to get them to represent themselves.
. he said that QV was
11
11
the;deterent as he had a vested interest.
Jack Savage called and said that he told the attorney for the white people (Edwards}
that as "far as we are concerned, once the ordinanc e was pas sed, the property
reverts to the center of the road and belongs to the property owners on either
side, and they could plow it up and plant it in cotton. 11 He told Ray Nixon to be
sure the barricade is one inch inside the city's prof)erty .
Talked to Virgil Cope land.
. and h e is naming himself, Eharlie Edwards (atty )
and Clif Bullard (VP of SW Citizens Committee) he understands that he is to
call the meeting and invite all your appointees. This he will do Monda y for
Wednesday.
. They are having a meeting of their E xecutive Committee Saturday
afternoon and ta.is is what he plans to Propos e then to pres ent to the bi - racial
group. He is compl e tely s old on this idea and realizes what a great v ictory it
will be for thos e people:
1 . Recommend barrier be removed as it has served its
purpose and is really as artifical and the situation which brought it about.
2.
300 acres for
State the willingness of thos e resid e nts to re zone the

Recommend to call:
President, Atlanta Real Estate Board
President, Empire Real Estate Board
President, Wes tend Businessmen Association
President, Southwest Citizens Association
Chairmen, Atlanta Negro Voters' League
Chairmen, All Citizens Committee for Better City Planning
Recommend they concur in this action.
�CONFIDENTIAL
1.
The abandonment of a portion of Peyton and Harlan Roads is the
focal point of increasing city problems created by transitions in residential
real estate.
2.
This problem has occured under normal transitional conditions in
many areas of Atlanta during the past years.
3.
It is now completely apparent that voluntary action on the part of all
citizens must be agreed upon in order to prevent unnecessary destruction
of property values, inconvenience and general loss of morale.
4.
Recognizing the many problems involved, the following suggestions
are recommended in order to establish a reasonable working policy for
the future:
A.
That the rights and privileges of every citizen to purchase
or sell is legal ~:ixt~ru:a1mixix:::bra.:~\ld~w in Atlanta, and protected by
the Georgia Real Estate Commission
B.
This is a voluntary gentlemen's agreement entered into
to preserve the
C.
best interests of all parties.
That the Atlanta Real Estate Board and the Empire Real Estate
Board be asked to appoint a six-man committee to develop and
carry out the following real estate program in this city;
(1)
To ask the Metropolitan Planning Commission and the
Planning and Zoning Division of the City of Atlanta to make
a complete study of the controversial areas of the southwest
and west side of the city and to recommend steps to b e taken
for replanning and rezoning so as to p r o v ide additional
f
I F land for home and apartment d we lling s .
�Confidential - 2
(2)
To study and recommend necessary street changes
that will assist in opening up additional land.
(3)
That this plan be resubmitted to this real estate
group within a six-month period.
(4)
That these two real estate groups will immediately
begin to develop a general, voluntary policy to be adopted
by their members and carried out to the best of their
ability in transitional areas; that such proposals will
be completed and adopted by these groups within a six
month period.
D.
That, from the present and until such programs can be carefully
worked out and agreed upon, that every effort will be made to avoid
controversial transitions, and that these two bodies will urge their
members not to participate in sales or listings for transitional purposes
except where it would be within the normal expansion limits of areas
established
adjacent to and contiguous to/transitions now going on.
E.
That in the Peyton Harlan Road area that the following steps will
be taken to improve the artificial situation created:
(1)
That Dr . Clinton Warner who holds a sales contract on
the BEnnett property relinquish his contract and permit the
purchase of the property by the citizens who now reside in
the area, and who are ready to purchase the same property .
That Dr. Warner take this action in the light of recognizing
�Confidential - 3
that this is a voluntary sacrifice on his part to improve
this difficult situation.
(2)
That the two real estate bodies will make every
effort to prevent any transition in the Peyton Forest area
south of the junction of Peyton and Harlan Roads for a period
of eighteen months and until the above plans can be worked
out with the two real estate boards and put into effect.
(3)
That the residents in the Peyton Forrest area agree to
cooperate by not listing or selling their homes durin g this
period except in the case of transfer or other normal moving
requirements.
(4)
That if these conditions can be satisfactorily agreed upon,
-
it is the reoomme ndation of this group that the Board of
Aldermen, having taken reasonable action to stalilize this
difficult and unwarrented condition, would now recind their
action and reopen P eyton and Harlan Roads.

�PROPOSED COMMUNITY STABILIZATION PLAN
PEYTON,
J?urpose:
HARLAN AND WILLIS MILL ROAD AREA
To effectively and permanently stabilize communities connected
by Harlan, Peyton and /or Willis Mill Roads, S. W.
Introduction :
In the past several years, the subject communities have been plagued with
racial tensions, losses in property values, and a general disruption of the
peaceful and tranquil conditions normally characterizing these communities.
Citizens have become increasingly distraught over the prospects of seeing
their homes absorbed by the rapidly expanding Negro community lying to the
north .
These citizens have sought relief from city officials, their aldermen ,
civic groups concerned over the future of Cascade Heights, and their neighbors.
Thus far, all efforts have been in vain.
The lack of a definite plan , supported
by both white and Negro citizens, has seriously handicapped all tho s e who
ha ve at te mpte d to put an e nd to the tensions in the troubled commun i t ie s.
Wi th th e r ece n t i n terest sho wn by city offici a l s, c iti z ens now belie ve that th e
time is ri pe for pre s e nt in g a pl an tha t w ill permane ntly stab i liz e th e se
Southwest Atlanta com m uni t ies a nd rid the m of their raci a l tensions .
Such a
plan is reflected in the following pages .
Description of the Stabilization Plan
No plan can effectively stabilize the aforementioned communities unless it
�provides advantages to both white and Negro cit izens .
With this fact in
mind , the proposed stabilization plan contains benefits to both.
Fir s t,
it offers the white citizens permanent relief through the closure of Harlan
and Peyton Roads at points north of the Peyton- Utoy Forest community.
Secondly, it offers the Negro citizens a tremendous advantage by providing
th~m with approximately 250 acres of land, heretofore not available, for
residential development.
The plan also includes the construction of
additional roads for the Negro citizens to permit their access to the proposed residential development.
Exhibit A shows the proposed residential
ar ea s, the locations of proposed roads, and the proposed road closure
points on Harlan and Peyton Roads .
Advantages of the Plan
Below are listed just a few of the major advantages that the proposed
stabil ization plan will provide:
I.
Reduces racial tensions .
2.
Insures maintenance of property values within the troubled
community.
3.
Provides choic e resi dential building lots for construction of
approximately 400 Negro residences .
4.
Minimizes city constr uct ion costs for new r oads by taking
advantage of e x isting r o ads where possible .
5.
Preserves established commun ities in this area.

�6.
Creates a fa vorable atmosphere for establishment of
proposed school located north of Utoy Creek (See
Exh ibit A) .
7.
Provi des addi t iona l city reven ue from c itizens who will
sett le i n proposed residential areas .
8.
Restores confidence to cit i zens w ithin established com m u n i ties and to those citizens desiring to settle in these
established · comrnunitie s.
Cone l us ion:
The success of this proposed stabilization pl an is dependent upon your
enthusiastic support as Mayor.
Without yo u r s u pport , all efforts will
again be in vain.
A ll cit i zens of the comm u ni t i es described here i n earnestl y so li cit your
