Atlanta Race Riot Walks- Day Three

Wednesday, September 25, 2019, 1:00 AM

Atlanta Race Riot Walks The Atlanta Race Riot of 1906 was an event where white mobs attacked Blacks for three days.  The riots began after claims of white women were raped by Black men and other incidences of Black people acting “against” whites.  A power keg of incendiary reporting in newspapers, a contentious election employing race-baiting techniques, and economic stresses tied to racial fears erupted in this violet period that shut down Atlanta for three days making people were afraid to come out of their homes.  This historical event was “forgotten” in Atlanta’s records and resurfaced and by 2006 a Race Riot Remembrance Committee had formed and held a number of public meetings and events. Join Civil Bikes, for a Three-part event, September 22, 23, and 24th, for 1.5 hour walks to sites associated with Atlanta’s deadliest race riot.   We will review historical events that lead to three days rioting, occurrences of violence and acts of resistance, and what were the results of the riots.   There will be a post-walk discussion held at a hyper-local bar/ restaurant, individuals are on their own for food and drink. Days: Sept. 22- 24 Locations  Sept. 22nd, 2- 4 PM- Woodruff Park, Relay Bikeshare station Sept. 23rd - TBD, 6-7:30 PM Sept. 24th  - TBD, 6-7:30 PM
