Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

In 1931, in Scottsboro, AL, nine African American men were wrongly accused of raping two white women. An all-white jury found them guilty, and eight were sentenced to death. Here, Howard (American history, Bloomsburg Univ.) presents the voices of activists like Harry Haywood and William Patterson, who took the lead in organizing protests to free these innocent men.
