It is a tragic storyline: white women falsely accusing Black men of rape. Historic records document actual circumstances spanning generations, from the days of frequent lynch mobs to present day mass media. However, the case of The Scottsboro Boys gained national attention and sparked the Civil Rights Movement. It was March, 1931, in Scottsboro, AL when nine African American youths were engaged in a fight with white youths on a freight train. The African American males were pulled off the train, and local authorities persuaded two white females riding the train to claim the men raped them. As word spread with the false accusations, streets filled with an angry lynch mob of local residents, only appeased by the promise of a quick trial, conviction to imprisonment and execution. For nearly fifty years the nine boys lives would never be the same as they were convicted and confined behind prison bars, and confined by the prison of injustice mentally, spiritually, emotionally, and psychologically.
