Summary
In March of 1931, two white women stepped off a train in Paint Rock, Alabama, and accused nine black teenage passengers of gang rape. So began the Scottsboro case, one of the 20th century's most fiery legal battles. This episode of American Experience chronicles the case, which generated what many view as the most divisive regional conflict since the Civil War, led to momentous Supreme Court decisions, and helped give birth to the civil rights movement
