Description

Atlanta: A dispute between a Black Muslim and a Black Panther over who could sell their newspaper on a certain street corner, resulted in a near-riot here 2/15 afternoon that ended with at least 21 persons under arrest. Several hundred Negroes and about one hundred policemen met in a closed-off two-block area before the disturbance had ended. One person was injured in the brick and bottle throwing that followed the dispute.
