DECEMBER 4

Summary

Griffin checks into a white luxury hotel in Atlanta, as a white, but is treated with utmost suspicion and discourtesy. Meanwhile he decides to do a story on Atlanta’s Negro business and civic leaders. A young, white photographer assists him in doing this story.


Notes

The author’s white racial purity is doubted by extremely color conscious whites. This occurs when as a ‘not so fair’ white he checks into a white luxury hotel. He is treated not just inhospitably, but with utmost suspicion and discourtesy and is even asked to pay in advance for a phone call.

In contrast the next part of the diary describes the white photographer who joins the author to do a story on Atlanta’s Negro business and civic leaders. The author begins to like him almost immediately after meeting him. Griffin believes that he is a ‘gentleman in every way.’
