Abstract:

The bulk of these oral histories deal with the Civil Rights Movement in Atlanta. Specific events mentioned include the student movement centering on Atlanta University; The Committee on Appeal for Human Rights (COAHR); creation and publication of the Atlanta Enquirer newspaper; the organization of the Atlanta Committee of Cooperative Action (ACCA), the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), and activities to desegregate city buses and restaurants. Other topics discussed on the tapes include desegregation of the public schools and libraries and the organization of Help Our Public Education (H.O.P.E.). In addition, the relationship between local activists and Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) are discussed. Among the specific interviews, Pearlie Dove, Robert Edge, John Sibley, Portia Harden Potts, and Muriel Lokey discuss desegregation of Atlanta schools. Lonnie King, Jesse Hill, Alton Hornsby, and Charles Black discuss the activities tied to the Student Movement at Atlanta University. Although the primary focus of the project was the documentation of Atlantans and their involvement in the Civil Rights Movement, events in Georgia and the Southeast were also collected. Of particular importance is the discussion of the St. Augustine Movement, a series of demonstrations said to have guaranteed passage and the signing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Other discussions include work in desegregating educational facilities throughout the country, and discrimination and segregation in the United States Army in the 1950s and 1960s.
