Abstract:

Discusses the legal case in which nine African American men were falsely accused of rape, the trials and appeals thereafter, and the historical background regarding the lack of civil and legal rights for African Americans. The Scottsboro Case of the 1930s was one of the most famous miscarriages of justice in U.S. history, when nine African-American youths were falsely accused of rape and held in prison for several years. This book explains the culture of racism and segregation in the South in which the Scottsboro trials took place. It tells the story of the defendants, the people who tried to help them, and the many trials and appeals. The book also explains how the U.S. Supreme Court has defended civil rights in the Scottsboro Case and other cases.
