The outburst was touched off
after police wounded a Negro
suspected, of car theft .
Leaders of the militant Student Nonviolent Coordinating
Committee were in the forefront of the rnelee.
State troopers and all offduty city policemen were
summoned to help deal with
the racial outburst- the worst
this progressive Southern city
has experienced in moder n
times.
Mayor Ivan Allen J r. climbed
atop a car in the r iot-torn
Negro district to try and reason with the crowd, but was
greeted with taun ts of "white

The Mayor was finally toppled from his perch when the

finger of blame on Stokely ,
Carmichael and his wild
SNCC crew who were on
the scene as big as life.
The showdown between
Atlanta and SNCC was
bound to come. Atlanta is
obsessed with. its image of
progress and SNCC is obsessed with smashing images.
That Atlanta is a city of
comparative racial progress
cannot be doubted. Such
progress has been hammered ou,t by its white
power structure and its
Negro leadership, operating
through the Summit Leadership Cpnferehce coalition.
The city sends racial
liberals, by aJl Southern
and most
orthern standards, to Congress. Its Negroes vote. Integrated high
school football games are
played without. incident.
com mu nit y
F ourteen
schools for poor people are
operating at night. Atlanta's antipoverty program
has been praised as a
model.
For a quarter of a century, the mayors of Atlanta- first Willlam Hartsfield and now Ivan Allenhave been moderate to liberal, racially. Mayor Allen
supported the 1964 Civil
Rights Act and now supports the 1966 one.
Allen has a nearly daily
habit of riding to work by
way of Atlanta's slums,
several
relatively
small
pockets of shacks, and
harassing his department
heads to clean up streets.
He had a tudy made of all
available Federal aid and
goes after every penny he
can get.
Yet there is another side
to Atlanta. Racial progress
at t imes has been grudging.
Eight Atlanta hospitals are
under a Federal ul timatum
t o stop discrimination by
next Thursday or face withdrawa l of Federal funds.
Allen and Atlanta were
able to swiftly clear a slum
and huild an $18 million
municipal stadium for the
baseball Braves and football
Falcons to clinch the status
of a Big League city, but
don't seem able to clear
other slums and provide decent housing as swiftly or
with the same determination.
For all its progress and
shining image, Atlanta hasn't
been able to reach down yet
t o the poor Negro who, as in
other cities, has poor housing, poor jobs if jobs at all,
and poor schools.

Dear Mayor Allen:
It made me more proud than ever to be a native Atlantan, when
you and Police Chief Herbert Jenkins stood up to those outside
agitators, and succeeded in arresting Stokely Carmichael. I
look for an influx of people wanting to reside in Atlanta where
there is some modicum of safety in our formerly safe country.
To see you -- a slight, grey-haired man -- full of sincerity
in trying to restore order, on top of that car being shaken so
that you had to jump, spoke great courage in action, and is the
kind of match America needs towards all of these troublesome
"youths" and hoodlums. I wish other representatives of the
people in state governments, and in national and federal posts,
would show that kind of courage in handling the infiltrators
and agitators who have been stirring up trouble ever since
these so-called marches, and other distrubing riots of greater
or lesser degree started.
You are a great man.
Thank you.
Sincerely yours,
~e,~

My husband and I are Atlantans who moved to Detroit a
year ago. He, a recent Emory graduate, is now a
professor at Wayne State University, and we have sung
the praises of our home town since the day we arrived

Dear Mayor Allen:
I have been a frequent visitor to your fine
City and plan to return on October 9th for a Narch of Dimes
Conference and again on October 21th to attend a short course
at Georgia State College. My reason for writing, however, is
to offer my congratulations on the fine job you are doing in
-attempting tG ease the strained racial situation which now
exists.
}zy- interest is somewhat involved. I moved
to Oak Ridge from New York City some 18 years ago. To me, the
closest thing to Cosmopolitan progress and living in the
Southeast is your fine City. LocaJ.ly I am a Research Chemist
for Union Carbide. I am also a Colonel on the staff of Gov.
Frank Clement. Ab0ve all, I am serving as Chairman in my
third year on our City Council appointed Human Relations
Advisory Board. My interests are many and varied, you see.
Because of this I can more fully appreciate what you are
doing.
May your efforts meet with the success that
they deserve.
Yours sincerely.,

You and many of your fellow mayors have really been on the f iring
line in the racial disorde:es t 1is summero
Of all the people involved, as seen on t elevision, you strike me a s
having acquit ~ed yourself with the most courage, dignity, and r esponsib:1.11.ityo
It took real guts to go down in t he midst of a riot and to stay there
until it was over. And then to talk about it in a calm and dispassionate,
even compassionate way. Atlanta is lucky .u. to have you.
I 'm a born-and-bre North Carolini an who has lived in .Pennsylvania
for 10 years now. I've oft en been embnnsassed by t he conduct of white
Southerners these past few years. But I'm proud of you.
Our Negro fellow Americans are going to try our patience for a while ..
They and all Ar.:ericans are lucky t have courageo~s public officia ls
like you on hand to keep order without resort to cruel oppression; to
press for progress without caving m to emotional excesses and unrealistic
demands ..

My Dear Mayor:
I saw you and your city on the news cast last
night, during and after the riot. I was very much impressed
with you and I was deeply moved by your reflections as you
strolled amid the ruins left by the riot.
You showed great understanding of the problems
that face your city. At the same time your courage and determination must be a great source of comfort to the people of
Atlanta.
I salute you as a great leader and offer my
deepest sympathy to you and all of the good people of Atlanta.
I trust that your courage and wisdom might
serve as an inspiration to the leaders of other American
cities.
Yours respectfully_,

Sir:
Let me commend you on the handling of the recent riot in Atlanta.
There is enclosed a pamphlet which I think you will appreciate
reading about Communists and the manner in which they operate.
I think you will see a close relation with the statement of Gus Hall,
General Secretary, Communist Party, USA and the riot that was
held in Atlanta.
You will probably remember I was with the Federal Reserve in
Atlanta for twenty years and am thoroughly familiar with your
family background and I know you have and are doing a good job.
The reason for this letter is simply to congratulate you on seeing
and understanding the real cause of the riot.

When the Democratic National Convention was being held in Atlantic City, continued attempts
to disrupt the convention were made by Negro demonstrators who kept up their demands, despite compromise
attempts, that the Mississippi Freedom Democrats be seated. The demonstrators were members of the Student
Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC - pronounced SNICK), often described in the press as one of the
largest, most militant and radical organizations of the New Left.
In Selma, Alabama, in early March 1965, fiery SNCC leaders wanted to continue their march
to lvbntgomery despite a court order forbidding it. Only intervention by Federal Conciliator LeRoy Collins
prevented it. A few weeks later, despite a voting rights speech to Congress by President Lyndon B. Johnson,
SNCC continued to picket the White House and threatened further demonstrations. This induced the "Washington
Post" to say SNCC members appeared to be "driven by folly to demonstrate for the sheer, sterile sake of demonstration."
S NCC and its demonstrations go back to 1960 and the first lunch counter sit-ins, when the
organization was formed to foster the growth of civil rights agitation. According to the II New York Times , 11
S NCCwas born April 17, 1960, by about 300 people, almost all of them Negro youths, and has since become
the inspiration for all the organizations of the new student left.
"The Saturday Evening Post" of May 8, 1965, reported that SNCC "is a wonder, perfectly
desi gned to fit the anarchic student temper. It has a full-time staff of 230 but no membership . Its broad base
is a separate group called Friends of S.N . C.C., which has 150 chapters, two th irds of them on campus ." The
arti cle says SNCC leaders travel a far - left dinner circuit, "where they are sometimes lucid, sometimes totally
bewildering, 11 and it quotes a government investigator as saying th a t SNCC has been "thoroughly infiltrated by
Communists."
A report by the Louisiana Joint Legislative Committee concurs , saying SNCC is "substantially
under th e influence of the Communist Party. 11 SNCC officials admit no effort has been made to pu rge Commu nists from the membership. "We have no political test fo r membership and we never will have," a SNCC
Washington official said. 11 Newsweek" quoted another official as admitting that Communist Party members
had gone to Alabama and Mississippi to work with S NCC.

�The Washington Star 11 revealed that the organization hoped to establish "Friends of SNCC 11
groups in "uncommitted" nations around the world. "Such foreign affiliates of SNCC, 11 reporter Walter
Pincus wrote, "could present Communist parties around the world with a ready-made organizational weapon
for stirring up anti-American sentiments." lvbny troubled observers have pointed out that it makes little
difference whether or not SNCC radicals are Communists: 11 lf they do the same things, it may not make much
difference what kind of cards they carry."
11
This emphasizes the interesting transition SNCC has made from the civil rights field, for which
it was organized, to its invasion of the field of foreign policy. It was one of the leaders in the Washington
demonstrations August 6-9, 1965, when sit-ins were staged at the Capital, the White House gates were blocked
and Communist publications, such as "The Worker, 11 were distributed. A SNCC leader was among those arrested
by Washington police.
SNCC made its position clear in a statement in the March-April 1966 issue of" Insurgent"
published by the DuBois Clubs: "The Student Nonviolent Coordiroting Committee has a right and a responsibility
to dissent with United States foreign policy on any issue when it sees fit ••• We maintain that our country's cry
of 'preserve freedom in the world' is a hypocritical mask behind which it squashes liberation movements which
are not bound, and refuse to be bou-na~... by fhe -expedierici es of United States cold war policies . 11
SNCC on the draft: "We are in sympathy with, and support, the men in this country who are
unwilling to respond to a military draft which would compel them to contribute their lives to United States
aggression in Vietnam in the name of the 'freedom' we find so false in this country. 11 The National Association
for the Advancement of Colored People immediately disassociated itself from the SNCC position and pointed out
that some SNCC workers are becoming disinterested in civil rights and are turning to peace demonstrations.
But SNCC's radical approach evidently was not radical enough. United Press International
reported from Atlanta May 17, 1966: "Two of the nation's most militant civil rights leaders, John Lewis and
James Foreman, have been deposed by the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). One source
said they were considered 'too moderate.' SNCC ormounced the changesc Stokeley Carmichael, a founder
of the all-Negro 'Black Panther Political Party' in Alabama, was named to succeed Lewis as SNCC chairman
and he promptly announced the orga'"'ization would ' intensify its efforts in the area of independent politics.'"
A "Miami Herald 11 story of July 1 quoted Carmicha e l as saying: "We inte nd to disrupt every pi ec e of (political)
machinery in this country. 11
Later in May, Carmichael snubbed President Johnson's invitation to a White House conference
on civil rights, announced SNCC will continu e to organi ze all - Negro political parties under the Black Panth er
emblem and refused to bar Communists, saying: "We are requiring no loyalty oaths. "
During the Meredith Mississippi Norch in June, he espoused a "black power" doctrine and
another SNCC spokesman threatened a deputy sheriff in one town that if he didn't behave, the marchers 11will
burn that courthouse, baby." On a television program, Carmichael stopped just short of advocating that Negroes
resort to any means to achi eve equality: "I've never rejected viol enc e as a means to obtain an end, " he said.
Columnist Joseph Alsop summed up th e situation: "In the person of Stoke ley Carmichael extremism has active ly
taken over SNCC ••• "
Communist Gus Hall, in summing up the records of the DuBois Clubs, Students for a Democratic
Society and SNCC, said: "They're just part of the 'respons ibl e left' - that portion of American yo uth that reali z es
society is sick." Responsible] Sick? Who ?

Dear Sir:
you for the stand you have taken in the recent .
I commend
,..
race riots in the city of Atlanta • • for one thing, I admire your courage.
If more of our public officials had the fortitude and courage of their
convictions, and were willing to support the local police force, the
race riots would have been halted long ago.
I further concur that the riots are promoted by outside agitators
such as those connected with SNCC and other pro-communist organizations
and not by the colored citizens of the respective areas. It is time our
country, and our national leaders awakened to this fact before it is
too late.
Again I commend you for your courage and convictions and
I know that the majority of the American citizens stand behind you.

Atlanta. When the newspapers appeared on the street, it
was heart warming to see that you again were among your

The press that y ou personally received in all the

necessary in all phases of running your office.

Dear Mayor Allen:
Let me congratulate you on the stand you took with the mob
which was about to erupt into a riot. You are to be commended
for advising the neo nle of Atlanta who was running the city.
According to the news re norts it would annear that Stokely
Carmichael incited certain groups to violent action. It
would apn ear that in this case that charges of violating
his oath when he acquired U. S. Citizenship would be enough
totake his citizenshi p from him and denort him. We have enou gh
undesireable so called Americans without imoorting more to
join their ranks .
Let me agaim congratulate you for your courageous stand.

�Dear Mayor Allen,
I just want to send along my apology for the actions of a few hoodlums in
your cit, y]the other night and to let you know their thinking is not the thinking
of respectable citizens, Negro and White, in Atlanta or elsewher e.
I for one,
sincerely hope this incident wil l not dim your si ghts for Equality , nor reduce
your efforts to make Atlanta the grea t city it can become.
I'm certain t he
Good Will Committee hastily organized, is an indication of the strong desire of
Atlantans to hel p you.
I've be en in at least thirty major South ern cities i n
the past four years and none, absolutely none, ha s yet reached the climate of
good will t hat exists in Atlanta.
The neares t in spirit and cooperation to
Atlanta that I found, was Roanoke, Virginia.
You may not remember me but in 1961 the late Trezzvant Anderson, Reporter f or
the Pittsburgh Couri er , introduced you to me and we chatted at your Mayoral headquqrter s for al most an hour.
I recall so well you saying •••• "A few y ea rs a go I was
an avowed s egregationist but I know now, tha t we must get on with the job of
building a gr eater Atlanta, a grea ter Georgi a , a grea ter Southland, and t hus, a
grea ter America."
Henry Aaron of your bas6ball team, is a go od friend of mine,
and h e ha s said many nice t hings abou t you and your efforts to bring about equality
fo r all people in the city.
I also know you have been forced to bear considerable
abuse, a s has Ral ph McGill and others , for your policy in this r egard but you hav e
held your ground.
Plea se don 't count t his as f lattery, I just want you to know
you have t .ou sands of fri ends a cro ss the coun try who appr eciat e what you have done
i n r ecent years . Moreover, we woul d not like to s ee you become discouraged .
I
hav e been wi t h t he American Broad cas t ing Company, stationed a t the Unived
Nation s , since 1962 but this l etter is sent on a personal ba sis.
Maybe one of these
days we can ar range an i nt erview to tal k abou t the Winds of Change " in At lanta.
Good luck . I counted the l ate Br anch Ri ckey a s a good friend and was privileged
to tal k with him many t i mes i n the f ities when he r es i ded in Pitts burgh. He gave me
a copy of Frank Tannenbaum ' s
book entitled
"Citi zen and Slave " and on t he l as t pa ge ,
in the l a st chap ter he under s cored the words •• "We shal l some day l ook ba ck and wonder
what the is sues were all about".
Thi s I bel ieve be cau s e t here are Ivan Al lens , Ral ph
McGi l ls, Marlin Brandos, Burt Lanca sters , Shelley Winters, Governor Scranton s , and
t : ous ands who believe that "God hath made of one blo od all na tions of menand we are
Hi s children, brothers and sisters al l ."

Your aw~reness of the inequities confronting Negroes and willingnes s
to publicly acknowledge them deserves the highest praise. The endorsement
you have given to the 1966 civil rights bill and opposition to the Dirksen
amendment requires a good deal of personal and political courage.

Dear Ivan:
Enclosed find a clipping which to me does not do you justice.
However, I agree with one thing, you certainly looked great in
the Atlanta racial crisis.
It proved what I always said, you are a man of great stature and
certainly you have won the plaudi~ and respect of all good and decent
citizens throughout the United States. I have heard many wonderful
things said about you and your fairness in handling this matter.
Of course, it is no surprise to me.
I can appreciate your views
which are similar to mind. However, there is a breaking point, and
I think that under all the circumstances you were most tolerant
and understanding .
I wish to reiterate what many have said, that there was nothing
that you did in the Atlanta situation which was not outstanding.
You have no apologies to make to anyone. I think the article , which
I have enclosed, is a weak one, and not as strong as it should be.

Dear Mayor:
No one can synpathize ·with you more than the people of the great
State of Alabama (more common'.cy' known as L. B. J 1 s whipping boy). We
know, better than aey one else, what you are up against w.i.th these race
riots. Yes, what you have recent'.cy' experienced, in Atlanta, is an ug'.cy'
race riot that no amount of managed publicity can transform into a piecful demonstration. It was an ug'.cy', violent, defiance of the law by an
unru]y mob of aggitators and misguided scum, yet, according to the ne,;,rs
media you excused it and apologized for them by saying and I quote" That
all of this is brought on by cities not growing properly. I guess we've
got to build better cities. We've got to impr ove opportunites and education far all of our people". Even though you was insulted physically
and verbally abused you assured this mob that the law was present to protect them not the innocent law abiding citizens who need and are entitled
to protection from that mob of scum, dope addicts, beatniks and u ~
comlllUnist.
As long as you and other elected officials, tbrou.ghout this Great
Land, don't have what it takes to stand up and be counted and stamp out
the Stokley Carmichael' s and the_ like, this mob violence is bound to get
worse. So, why don't you quit appeasing, apologizing and making excuses
and take an honorable stand for your GREAT STATE and your GREAT CITY. Let
it be known that these L.B. Jc sanction punks cannot come into your city
and insight a riot and get away with it. Let it be known, by action, not
by words that they will be dealt with very quickly and very firmly. Have
you got what it takes to stand up and be counted? Once your city heads
down that road of lawliness and violence you will find it to be four ti.ms
as far back up as it was dm-m. Action is the answer.

I have mentioned this matter to several other executives in our

both the clarity and honesty of your views as well as your
fortitude in expressing them.
Your forthright acceptance of the responsibility of your

Your equally forthright action against clearly disruptive
elements is equally sound and refreshing .

Dear Mr. Mayor:
Undoubtedly you have received many letters and other communications
pro and con with regard to your handling of the recent so called civil
rights situation in your good City.
II

I am not one of the types that immediately fire letters to newspapers
and public officials bn every controversial matter. It may be that I as well
as others should do more of it. I do feel compelled to write, commending
and congratulating you on your handling of the problem as I have seen it
expressed in the newspapers and on television.
It is very heartening to know that there are still some elected officials
who have a sense of responsibility and obligation to protect the rights and
privileges of their constituents as a whole, rather than to pressure groups,
purely with the thought in mind of perpetuating a regime.
It is quite a paradox for us to be sending our young men to Viet Nam
and other foreign countries to guard against insurrection and invasion of
the rights of people while permitting it to go along virtually unchecked in
this country of ours.
May the Supreme Architect of the Universe continue to provide you
with the wisdom and fortitude to discharge your responsibilities in the
be st interest of all people.
Very truly yours,

Dear Sir:
I am writing to suggest what I be lieve would be a practical way _of
putting a stop to the incitiilb.g of violence of norm a lly we n behave d colored
people by the Brack Power gagg.
They were able, I understand to create the riot by outright deception
in tha t they stated the suspected auto thief was shot while handcuffed , when the
truth was he had ne ver been handcuffed and was trying to get aw ay from the
policem an when he was shot. At [e ast, that is what I re ad in the Washington
papers.
I, therefore, propose that you secure the enactment of leg is lation
(by speci al session of your legislature, if it is not now in session) in the nature
of the f oUowing:
An Act
It shall be unlawfu l for any person, or association of persons
to create or publish or otherwise disseminate within the State
of Georgia any false statement which wou ld tend to create disorder,
or to incite riots, or inflame persons against persons, or to incite
people of one race against the people of another race, or to incite
persons of one religion against persons of another religion.
Any person violating the provisions of the foregoing act, shau,
upon conviction there of, be fined not less than two thousand
dollars or imprisoned for .not less than two nor more than five years,
or both.
Nothing in the foregoing shau be construed to restrict the freedom of
the press in publishing statements that are true nor shaII anything in
the foregoing be construed to prohibit the publishers of established
newspapers from publishing statements which they have adequa te
reason to be Iieve are true, it being the intent of the Legislature to
prohibit the promulgation of false information calculated to disturb

to face and are facing there in Atlanta, hefore and during a:11
the unnecessary violence.
I ·w:ould lik e to say, I am a Ne:gro ·, who had a, father · and mother ·
that· taught us honesty, decency, dignity, intelligence, respect
for the othe-r fellow. Respe ct. f .o r law and orde.r·. Know the law and'
stay within it. Always try and do· to the other ' fellow as· you would
ha-v.e him do to you . One. of my fath e:r 's favorite sayings was, the
wo.rst. man in the wu:rld to do business "With, is an ( educ ated fool),
b.ecause he:·Vthinks ne knows: e~e:cything, but: li tt-1.e- or nothing.
With ctll the CiviL Right . leaders we have in .America today, we are
bound to hav.e some fool.s· miXS'd up ~iii th the better ones.I stand with
Dr.·. Martin Luther King,. because I believe as: he does. Violence is
definiteiy not the way.
I honestly wish we had more :May<n.•s,., Sena.to;i,s , and Congress.mans: with
. the same kind of for.ti tude that you have_. If we did, this would bea be·tter· America :ro.n· all of us· to live in. A man can be as honest
as the days are long and s.till not have the guts to stand up fol' ·
what he knows is right.• He is· afraid he will loos·e a. vote.
You testified for· the 1.964 Civil Rights Act because within you,
you lmew this wa-s· the right: thing to do, r-egardless to what might
happen. to your. political future. When any man stand for what is
right and good, he will surely win soon or· later, be.cause this is
what God stand for, and he has never lost a battle yet.
Mayor Allen, please keep up the good works you have s·tarted, and
you won't only help to make Atlanta a better place for · all of it
citizens, but you will help make America· a better place for all
to live.
My :Qra.-yers and best wishes will alwayJs- be

Honorable Ivan Allen, Mayor
Atlanta, Georgia
Dear Mayor Allen:
Having read all summer about the racial unrest in various
parts of the country and the activities of the leaders of certain militant
Negro organizations in fomenting these disturbances, I have wondered
what had become of the laws against incitement to rioting. I am de lighted that you have decided to make use of your law on this subject and
am of the opinion that if it had been used more generously elsewhere,
the trouble which erupted in Atlanta, which has had an ex cellent record
in race relations, might not have ever developed.
· I hope that you will stick to your guns and prosecute Mr. Carmichael to the full extent justified by the evidence, and that your example
may encourage the public officials charged with maintaining law and
order in other cities, to deal with these disturbances in the same manner.
Respectfully yours,

Dear Mayor All en,
As a Democratic candidate for Mayor of Baltimore
City in next year ' s primary elec tion, please allow me to
congratulate you , and express my broad admiration, for
the great social p ro gress whi ch has been made under your
leadership by Atlanta whites and Negroes; and for your
excellent handling of the exp losive situation brought
upon you from outside by those like Stokel y Carmi chael
who are too ful l of hostility and too empty of patience,
and who, unlike any trul y forward-look ing citizen, have
no stake in the future of your progressive communit y .
In short , those who , in the memorable phrase of the
elder Rev. Martin Luther King , were referred to by him
when he said 11 Seems like nobody here wants to understand
anybody".
I hope tha t before many months have passed, th e
Negro community of Atlanta, as well as Negro community
of Baltimore and of Jl..merica will realize that racial progress for Ne groes and the protection of the liberti es of
both whi te·s an Ne groes requires a studious increase in
the measure of civic responsibility which is exercised
not only b y whites, but by Ne groes.
As it was said in Lu¥'.e Chapt er 12, 11 Unt o whomsoever
much has been e;iven, of him will much be required 11 •
�If you 1 11 pardon a present l y unpopular pronouncement , muc h has been given to whites and much has been

The Honorable 'fvan Allen
Mayor of Atlanta
City Hall
Atlanta, Georgia
Dear Mayor Allen:
Congratulations on your handling of the recent riots
in Atlanta. As a former Atlantan living in Boston, I am able
to make comparisons between the two cities~
However wrong Stokely Carmichael may be when making
inflanunatory statements, his remarks can carry weight only
when people are motivated to listen--and poverty, unemployment,
and pol ice brutality are strong motivators. I believe that
these conditions exist in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, and Los
Angeles. Atlanta is far out in front because of the biracial
dialogue that has developed, but even this was not developed
overnight, and I can recall when Martin Luther King's viewpoint was considered "radical" by Atlanta's ruling bodies.
Please continue the good work you are doing, but please
remember that although Stokeley : Cannichael 's views have been
distorted, perhaps by· his own milieu , the seeds of truth
created them and the resulting riots.
Sincerely yours,
fJ~~
