Storyboard Text

  • I'm so happy! My business is thriving, as well as many other black-owned stores.
  • White men were enraged by the black men's success. They believed that black success would lead to their downfall.
  • More and more people got angry...
  • Eventually, a huge group of irate white men who were afraid of losing their jobs gathered. 
  • The group of men gathered weapons and attacked innocent black people.
  • The militia came three after the riot started. By then, 26 people had already been killed, hundreds more injured. This riot gave Atlanta a reputation of being extremely racist, and the leaders were left with the challenge of reversing that.
