Accused! : the trials of the Scottsboro Boys : lies, prejudice, and the Fourteenth Amendment by Larry Dane Brimner( Book )

3 editions published between 2019 and 2020 in English and held by 694 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

1931. Nine black teenagers were arrested as they traveled on a train through Scottsboro, Alabama after a fight; two white women then falsely accused them of rape. Such accusations in the Jim Crow south almost certainly meant death, either by a lynch mob or the electric chair. The Scottsboro boys found themselves facing one prejudiced trial after another, a racist legal system, all-white juries, and the death penalty. They spent years in Alabama's prison system, enduring inhumane conditions and torture. Brimner shows that the trials and the two Supreme Court verdicts they produced left a lasting imprint that continues to this day. -- adapted from jacket and perusal of book
