SUMMARY

"During the hot summer of 1906, anger simmered in Atlanta, a city that outwardly savored its reputation as the Gate City of the New South, a place where the races lived peacefully, if apart, and everyone focused more on prosperity than prejudice. But racial hatred came to the forefront during a heated political campaign, and the city's newspapers fanned its flames with sensational reports alleging assaults on white women by black men. The rage erupted in late September, and, during on of the most brutal race riots in the history of America, roving groups of whites attacked and killed at least twenty-five blacks. After four days of violence, black and white civic leaders came together in unprecedented meetings that can be viewed as either concerted public relations efforts to downplay the events, or as setting the stage for Atlanta's civil rights leadership half a century later. Rebecca Burns brings this horrifying yet fascinating moment in history to life, delivering a drama you won't want to put down."--BOOK JACKET.Burns, Rebecca C. is the author of 'Rage in the Gate City The Story of the 1906 Atlanta Race Riot', published 2006 under ISBN 9781578602681 and ISBN 1578602688.
