About this product
- DescriptionAlabama, 1931. A posse stops a freight train and arrests nine black youths. Their crime: fighting with white boys. Then two white girls emerge from ather freight car, and within seconds the cry of rape goes up. One of the girls sticks to her story. The other changes her tune, again and again. A young journalist, whose only connection to the incident is her overheated social conscience, fights to save the nine youths from the electric chair, redeem the girl who repents her lie, and make amends for her own past. Stirring racism, sexism, and anti-Semitism into an explosive brew, Scottsboro is a vel of a shocking injustice that reverberated around the world. 'A fine vel ...Anyone who wants to appreciate the scale of the miracle that a black man has been elected president of the United States should sit down with Scottsboro ' - Lionel Shriver.
