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.
