A Flower for the Graves
Raines was one of the featured speakers on a panel about Patterson’s journalism legacy at this month’s AJC Decatur Book Festival, along with civil rights leader Andrew Young; Hank Klibanoff, former AJC managing editor and co-author of a Pulitzer Prize-winning book on press coverage of the civil rights movement; and journalism scholar Roy Peter Clark. In 2016, Emory University’s Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library acquired Patterson’s papers. “One of the things that stories allow us to do is to experience life through the eyes of the heart and soul of others,” said Clark vice president of the Poynter Institute for Media Studies. “Gene understood that. Stories teach us who the villains are. But they also teach us how to love each other.”Below is the full text of Patterson’s “A Flower for the Graves,” which originally ran in the Atlanta Constitution on Sept. 16, 1963.------------------------------A Negro mother wept in the street Sunday morning in front of a Baptist Church in Birmingham. In her hand she held a shoe, one shoe, from the foot of her dead child. We hold that shoe with her. Every one of us in the white South holds that small shoe in his hand. It is too late to blame the sick criminals who handled the dynamite. The FBI and the police can deal with that kind. The charge against them is simple. They killed four children. Only we can trace the truth, Southerner -- you and I. We broke those children’s bodies. We watched the stage set without staying it. We listened to the prologue unbestirred. We saw the curtain opening with disinterest. We have heard the play. * * * We -- who go on electing politicians who heat the kettles of hate. We -- who raise no hand to silence the mean and little men who have their nigger jokes. We -- who stand aside in imagined rectitude and let the mad dogs that run in every society slide their leashes from our hand, and spring. We -- the heirs of a proud South, who protest its worth and demand it recognition -- we are the ones who have ducked the difficult, skirted the uncomfortable, caviled at the challenge, resented the necessary, rationalized the unacceptable, and created the day surely when these children would die. This is no time to load our anguish onto the murderous scapegoat who set the cap in dynamite of our own manufacture. He didn't know any better. Somewhere in the dim and fevered recess of an evil mind he feels right now that he has been a hero. He is only guilty of murder. He thinks he has pleased us. * * * We of the white South who know better are the ones who must take a harsher judgment. We, who know better, created a climate for child-killing by those who don't. We hold that shoe in our hand, Southerner. Let us see it straight, and look at the blood on it. Let us compare it with the unworthy speeches of Southern public men who have traduced the Negro; match it with the spectacle of shrilling children whose parents and teachers turned them free to spit epithets at small huddles of Negro school children for a week before this Sunday in Birmingham; hold up the shoe and look beyond it to...

Decatur nonprofit's flower kits help bring science to life for GA students
Atlanta area students learn about their local environment while also grasping the basics of the scientific process is the two-fold mission of a new Decatur-based nonprofit.Georgia Blossom sprung up in January of this year, delivering interactive flower press kits to metro Atlanta students to help them observe and study the natural world. So far, 112 kits have gone out, with 89 of those to students at Alpharetta Elementary School and others to parents in Brookhaven and Roswell.The nonprofit is the idea of Decatur resident and Emory student, Gabriela Kova. Kova, who is in her third year studying political science, said she was inspired by working with children and seeing the “ah-ha!” moments when a challenging concept became clear.“[These kits] allow kids to examine colors, shapes and sizes and put it all together to draw their own conclusions in an all encompassing way,” she said. “I love seeing when these kids finally get a concept, and I want more kids to have those moments.”Using the kits teaches observation skills that form the building blocks of the scientific process, Kova said.Each kit comes in a decorative paper mache box and incl...

Kudzu is flowering now
A: They are blooming right now! I saw several flowers recently when walking on the newly completed South Peachtree Creek PATH near Mason Mill Park in Decatur. The boardwalk is elevated between kudzu-covered trees so it was easy to spot the purple flowers. I could smell the grape-scented blooms as I walked along. Kudzu is a member of the pea family, so when the flowers disappear they are replaced by clusters of short pea-like seedpods. All parts of the kudzu vine are edible if you harvest them at the right time.Q: I plan to dig out several roses that have rose rosette virus. I wear a pair of long-sleeved leather gloves when I’m working around my roses. Can I possibly be transmitting the disease via the gloves?Buddy Snipes, DeKalb CountyA: Rose rosette virus is spread by tiny mites that feed on infected plants and are then transferred, usually by wind, to a healthy bush. In theory I suppose your gloves could carry mites from one bush to another but I don’t know that it has ever been observed. Just to be safe, wipe the gloves with a rag dampened with soapy water before you work with your “clean ” roses.Q: We have rabbits who like my yard and flowers. What do you recommend to make the...
