  • Description

    A NEGRO REAL ESTATE AGENT HAS BOUGHT A HOUSE ON THE "WHITE SIDE" OF ATLANTA'S BARRICADE. HE SAYS HE INTENDS TO MOVE IN THERE HIMSELF. THE HOUSE IS NEAR THE STREET BLOCKADE - LABELLED "ATLANTA'S BERLIN WALL" - WHICH SEPARATES A NEGRO NEIGHBOURHOOD FROM AN AREA OF PROSPEROUS HOME-OWNERS.

    ATLANTA'S MAYOR, IVAN ALLEN, SAYS THE BARRICADE ONLY WENT UP BECAUSE THE COMMUNITY WAS THREATENED BY UNSCRUPULOUS SALESMEN. "RIGHT OF ACCESS TO ALL PARTS OF ATLANTA, THE RIGHT TO PURCHASE OR SELL BY ALL CITIZENS OF ATLANTA HAS NEVER BEEN DENIED TO ANY CITIZEN OF HIS CITY", HE CLAIMS.

    THE NEGRO REAL ESTATE AGENT - MR. C.C. THORNTON - DENIES THAT HIS PURCHASE IS THREATENING AN OTHERWISE STABLE NEIGHBOURHOOD. THE PRESENT RESIDENT OF THE HOUSE IS REPORTED UNNERVED BY PICKETS AND TELEPHONE CALLS FROM KLUX KLUX KLANSMEN.
