Alabama, 1931. A posse stops a freight train and arrests nine black
youths. Their crime: fighting with white boys. Then two white girls
emerge from another 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 novel of a shocking injustice that reverberated
around the world. "A fine novel ...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".
