The Scottsboro Boys were nine African American teenagers, ages 13 to 20, falsely accused in Alabama of raping two White American women on a train in 1931. The landmark set of legal cases from this incident dealt with racism and the right to a fair trial. The cases included a lynch mob before the suspects had been indicted, all-white juries, rushed trials, and disruptive mobs. It is commonly cited as an example of a miscarriage of justice in the United States legal system.

The unfortunate black teenagers were: Haywood Patterson (age 18) who claimed that he had ridden freight trains for so long that he could light a cigarette on the top of a moving train; Clarence Norris (age 19), who had left behind ten brothers and sisters in rural Georgia; Charlie Weems (age 19); brothers Andy Wright (age 19) and Roy Wright (age 12), who were leaving home for the first time. The nearly blind Olin Montgomery (age 17), who was hoping to get a job in order to pay for a pair of glasses that he so desperately needed; Ozie Powell (age 16); Willie Roberson (age 16), who suffered from such severe syphilis that he could barely walk; and Eugene Williams (age 13);[7] Of these nine boys, only four knew each other prior to their arrest.

  1. It would be a great thing to know instead of only what happened to the innocent men— but what happened to the guilty women ( perjury) judge ( didn’t uphold the law, prosecutor willfully ignored the tangible evidence….( do a video on that Please) thank you for selecting this case.

  2. Hold strong my people. We are giants of humanity. Coptic Africian Egyptian taught the world how to read and write.. They were unlearned. FACT..It still exists

  3. I hope those two women never had a minutes peace in their lives after telling such wicked lies. White supremacist didn't need an excuse to lynch black men, any little thing would get them hyped up, and then in the next breath they have the nerve to talk about God.

  4. I live 30 minutes from Scottsboro now. I never knew this story but I will say I HATE going thru Scottsboro it always felt very Sinsiter. NOW I know why 🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️😞😞😞😞

  5. As to what I Read online, Victoria price never felt remorse nor guilty of what she did even at the last min of her life. On the other hand, Ruby Bates actually retrieve her statement towards the boys after returning from a run away in the later trials.
