The Coalition to Remember the 1906 Atlanta Race Riot has assembled a great deal of information on its website: www.1906atlantaraceriot.org

The New Georgia Encyclopedia contains an excellent account of the riot, with many additional links: www.georgiaencyclopedia.org/nge/Article.jsp?id=h-3033

Walter White, who would later lead the NAACP, was 13 years old when the riot occurred. This is his eyewitness account, from his 1948 memoirs: www.historymatters.gmu.edu/d/104

This package was compiled and written by Senior Editor John Sugg. His research assistant was Westminster Academy senior Mary Katherine Brake. Georgia State University historian Cliff Kuhn provided extensive background material. And the students at Grady High School conceived the idea of having a guide for a walking tour at the riot sites, which the students published in the school magazine Nexus.
