Subseries 1.1
Human Relations committees, 1958-1968
Boxes 1 - 12

Scope and Content Note

The subseries consists of the records of the Greater Atlanta Council on Human Relations (GACHR), the Georgia Council on Human Relations (GCHR), and the Community Relations Commission (CHR) from 1958-1968. Paschall was involved in the Greater Atlanta Council on Human Relations from its beginnings in 1958, and served as its Executive Director from 1962-1967. The records of this council include correspondence, meeting minutes, and other administrative material. Of particular interest is the material relating to various civil rights issues that the GACHR focused on while Paschall was involved, including desegregation of public housing, hospitals, schools, hotels, restaurants and other public facilities in the Atlanta metro area.

The Georgia Council on Human Relations was the parent body of the GACHR, and the small amount of records include correspondence, meeting minutes, newsletters, and other administrative material that document the activities of the GCHR.

In 1967, Paschall left the GACHR to head the newly established Community Relations Commission (CHR), a group charged with the task of "foster[ing] mutual understanding, tolerance, and respect among all the economic, social, religious, and ethnic groups in the City [of Atlanta]." Records include correspondence, meeting minutes, newsletters, and reports. Of particular interest are records relating to the public hearings that the Commission held in various neighborhoods throughout the city of Atlanta in 1967. The public hearings addressed such issues as housing quality, infrastructure, police protection, jobs, public facilities, and sanitation. Paschall left the CHR in 1968 amid controversy over her leadership.
