Atlanta, Georgia. 1906.
Tension between African Americans and Whites were higher than ever. Whites were afraid of the successful African Americans. They were also afraid of African Americans taking all job opportunities.
You are all savages!
We just want our rights!
On the morning of the riot, a series of articles detailed inaccurate news about African American men assaulting white women. Outraged, a group of white men and boys gathered weapons and started attacking African American in the streets.
For our jobs & women!
We didn't do anything!
Even city officials and the Georgia militia could barely stop the fighting. Whites attacked people, barber shops, etc. It came to a point where African Americans began to arm themselves!
The Riot went on for 48 hours until it was stopped. 25 African Americans were killed.
