Black Power in Tennessee NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee's eight black Democratic legislators have taken advantage of a Republican- DemiDcratic squabble to put together the first effective black show of lawmaking power in modem times in the Deep South. The eight— six mepieseniba- lives and two senators—managed to take the balance of power in both houses of Tennessee's 8Tth General Assembly laite in the session, which ended May 31. The rise of black power in the legislature was made possible by the rise of Republican power. The Republicans, by claiming the governor's chair, 43 Ho'iise seats and 13 Senate seats, forced the narrowing Democratic majority to depend on the Negro lawmakers to pass party bills when conservative Democrats balked. The. Democrats needed 50 votes to pass their party bills in the House and 17 in the Senate. PONYTAIL "I'll tell you why I don't come by your house any more.

In no other Southern slate has the two-party system established itself to the point where the Democrats must rely on Negroes to maintain the party's position. And for the first time in Tennessee, the white Democratic leaders openly admitted their need for the black votes. "One of the reasons the Democrats control the House and Senate is the black vote." Rep. Alvin King of Memphis, a Negro, told the House Democratic caucus. Rep. Ned McWherter, the caucus chairman who is white, said '"we have to help Mr. King and his associates and we need your help, Alvin, this is a two-way street." McWherter led the battle to run through the reluctant House a series of bills to establish a minimum wage, prohibit harassment by bill collectors, and to study dlsonminiaition.
