In March 1931, two white women stepped off a box car in Paint Rock, Alabama, with a shocking accusation of gang rape, by nine black teenagers on the train. So began the Scottsboro case, one of the 20th century's fieriest legal battles. The youths' trial generated the sharpest regional conflict since the Civil War, led to momentous Supreme Court decisions, and helped give birth to the civil rights movement.

Perfect for Non-Fiction Connections

By English 2 Teacher

Comments about PBS American Experience: Scottsboro: An American Tragedy DVD:

I teach high school English and I used this documentary as a non-fiction connection to To Kill a Mockingbird. My students really reacted well to being able to see how real the events from the novel really were. I would recommend this for middle to upper-level high school classes due to brief language and some images shown during the movie.

Comments about PBS American Experience: Scottsboro: An American Tragedy DVD:

As an African American I was not completely unaware of the circumstances depicted in this video, however, I learned of the genesis and the execution of the notion that "there is more than one way to enslave."

Comments about PBS American Experience: Scottsboro: An American Tragedy DVD:

The documentary was very informative, painful to watch, proof of historical sacrificial realities, and evidence of one of the distasteful occurances in our black history.
