  • Ga. utility has no records of 1946 killings of black men

    Boston Globe - 12/22/2014

    Georgia Power officials say the company has no records of the 1946 deaths of two black veterans at the hands of white conductors on its segregated Atlanta streetcar lines.

    Still, the utility said it has “worked diligently to build a culture of inclusion and respect for both our employees and customers,” and would continue to participate in efforts to honor the history of the communities it serves.

    The comments came in response to a Boston Sunday Globe story about the efforts of Northeastern University students to document killings from the Jim Crow era.
