The Scottsboro Boys

The Scottsboro Boys. Alabama 1932.

 

Nine black teenagers, aged 13 to 19, falsely accused of the rape of 2 white women aboard a train near Scottsboro, Alabama.

 

Their case is widely considered a miscarriage of justice., particularly by the use of all white juries.

 

It took until 2013 for them to be exonerated and even then, it was only a pardon for a crime they never committed.
