This is a collection of letters written by nine African American defendants in the infamous March 1931 Scottsboro, Alabama, rape case. Though most of the defendants were barely literate and all were teenagers when incarcerated, over the course of almost two decades they learned the rudiments of effective letter writing and in doing so forcefully expressed a wide range of perspectives on the falsity of the charges against them. They were known as the "Scottsboro Boys," and their incarceration became a cause celebre both in the United States and internationally. Noted social activists, authors, politicians, family members and ordinary people, condemned in letters what they viewed as a prime example of southern American judicial racism.
