Sex in our city

Atlanta was recently named the number one city for sex trade and trafficking in a federal study.  This report was conducted by Washington D.C.’s Urban Institute for the U.S. Justice Department. The study compared the sex trade industry in eight major American cities and found that Atlanta had the largest sex trade between 2003 and 2007.  Atlanta profited $290 million over this five year span, which is more than double what the other cities in the study had earned.

This reminds me of my first few years in Atlanta, while living underneath a female escort who was a single mother in my apartment complex in Sandy Springs.  Of course, moving from Louisiana, I was interested in hearing more about what this young lady did in her “profession” since I had never heard of it before.  I asked questions and babysat her son when I could so I can earn extra money.  Surprisingly, she made a really good living being an escort and even stated “I don’t have sex on most of my escort dates.”

From time to time, I wonder what happened to that young lady and her son.  She had moved away before I did and I never had a chance to find out how to keep in touch with her.

Atlanta is well known for its prostitution and female entertainers in and near the adult nightclub industry. Many events and conventions bring people to our city with lots of time and money to exhaust, which brings business to the escort industry.  Some escorts charge more than $1,000 per hour. An Atlanta “pimp” that the researchers interviewed made, on average, about $33,000 a week, according to a WSB story.  That is over $1 million a year.

With knowledge of the information above, I must ask the question “is sex that bad?”  I am sure many thoughts come to mind when I ask this question, but more questions come to my mind.   I definitely don’t condone the sex trade business or sex trafficking either, but we must admit that the sex industry exists and is a very lucrative business.  Are there positive benefits to this industry?  Metro Atlanta’s exotic and nude clubs generate $240 million annually–more than the city’s three major sports teams combined.  The adult-entertainment industry is currently a major economic engine in Atlanta.  While city and development officials prefer not to talk about this publicly, Atlanta’s erotic economy has long been a major financial force in the city that helps draw conventioneers and “high-rolling” celebrities alike, according to Atlanta Journal Constitution. Would-be dancers apply for a $350 permit, which involves an extensive background check to work in one of the city’s 19 clubs. Atlanta police say that this is due to the over 10% unemployment rate in Georgia. Also, more college students, single mothers, health and office professionals, and even a few age-defying grandmothers are open to this industry as a way to pay for mortgages, car payments and groceries.

A local club owner stated that, “you can use the industry one of two ways — as a stepping stone or tombstone; usually, the industry is a “pass-through” so women can go on to bigger and better things.”  A 21-year-old single mother, who is a dancer, estimates earning $50,000 after paying a nightly fee to the club, tips to DJs, and the “house mother.” She states that “most of us work a day job too now.”   Dancers who could once make $5,000 in a single evening say those nights are now increasingly rare due to the economy. Those women and men that don’t make this industry a “stepping stone,” usually benefit from therapy and counseling services, which is where I can.

Mental health is just as important as physical health, yet many of us still reject the thought of counseling. Therapy can be an effective treatment for mental and emotional problems. Talking about your thoughts and feelings with a trained professional can provide healing and emotional support.

Miami’s first black city Commissioner: M. Athalie Range

range_header_mathlieMary Athalie Wilkinson was born in Key West, Florida on November 7, 1915.  Her family left “the Keys” when she was very young and relocated to Miami, Florida.  Athalie graduated from the historical Booker T. Washington High School in 1939 and later attended the New England Institute of Anatomy and Embalming to become a licensed funeral director. Athalie went on to marry Oscar Lee Range who was originally from Valdosta, Georgia.  Oscar Range became a licensed funeral director, and together they opened their family funeral home in 1953.  After her husband’s death seven years later, Mrs. Athalie Range successfully continued the business which had three locations.

Range’s political involvement started in 1948, with the PTA of her children’s segregated school, Liberty City Elementary.  It is well documented that during this time conditions at the school were deplorable with enrollment of 1200 students, no permanent building, and 12 toilets for boys and 12 for girls.  In addition, there was no lunchroom and they only had outside drinking fountains, which were fed by uncovered water pipes.  Range organized 125 parents and residents to attend the regular school board meeting.  The school board was shocked at this grand mobilizing effort of Negroes within the community.

After several attempts to stall the meeting, the superintendent finally called the meeting to order stating, “in order to get our meeting moving, we have a large group of Negroes here so we are going to hear what they have to say.  If there is a spokesman among you, you may come up”.  Range eloquently spoke for fifteen minutes about their concerns.  As a result of demanding change for young black children, arrangements were made to transport food from Miami Jackson High, which was an all-white school at the time, to the elementary school.  Range and the other parents were promised a new school building complete with a cafeteria of its own.  The school board kept their commitment to construct a new school.

Calls for city hall were next on the political list during the 1960’s.  In the 1964 primary race for the commission seat, Range outdistanced her closest opponent by 500 votes, but was faced with a runoff election against a white candidate—Irving Christie.  She lost the run-off election by 1,000 votes.  Range was very critical of the tactics Christie used to win.  He utilized a big sound truck going around the white sections of town blasting “Unless you get out and vote in this election, you may have a Negro deciding your fate on the commission.”  After her loss, there was much disappointment within the community.

Robert King High was Mayor of Miami at this time and had aspirations to become the state’s next governor.  He strategized to increase his popularity within the black community.  After Range’s failed election attempt, High encouraged one city commissioner to relinquish his seat so that she could be appointed to the position.  In 1965, Range became the first black to serve on the Miami City Commission.  Subsequently she won the seat in the following election.

Range’s style of in-your-face activism followed her to city hall.  In the late 1960’s, trash pick-up within the black community did not occur very often.  In a 1967 commission meeting, Range reported that there were some apartment buildings in Liberty City where garbage was piled up for two weeks.  She introduced an ordinance mandating twice-weekly garbage collections all over the city of Miami.  The vote on the proposition was postponed twice. Range advised supporters to bring garbage to the next commission meeting and leave on the commissioner’s desk.  Blacks with bags of garbage packed the meeting and the ordinance was quickly passed.

Range left the commission in 1972 and Governor Reubin Askew later appointed her to the state cabinet as Secretary of Community Affairs where she served until 1973.  After leaving her cabinet post, President Jimmy Carter appointed her to the national AMTRAK board for a two year term.  Range was one of the first blacks to support Jimmy Carter’s campaign for the presidency in the late 1970’s.  She continued to run the funeral home with her family and remain active in Miami politics.   Range’s dominance in the political scene was due to her commitment, civil activism, and demand of social justice.

Range is a true pioneer of civil rights and role model to all women.  We celebrate her life and legacy during Women’s History Month.
