The Litany of Atlanta September 22-25, 1906 "W.E.B. Dubois"

113 years ago one of the most race induced white mob attacks in America's sordid history occurred in Atlanta, Georgia. WEB Dubois was caught in the middle of the white racist rage that was perpetrated against the black citizens of Atlanta, Georgia. The riot was initiated with the support of the city's major newspaper The Atlanta Constitution. Today, The Blackman Who Reads Aloud revisits that horrific onslaught that caused our black ancestors to be murdered, maimed, lynched, and injured for the simple reason of the color of their skin. We must learn our history and fully comprehend its meaning if we are ever going to be able to forge a true path to full equality in this nation any time soon. Reparations Now!
