This week, the infamous case of The Scottsboro Boys, nine black teens, who, double-damned by Depression and Jim Crow, guilty of nothing more than riding the rails, found themselves sentenced to die.

Late last year, the State of Alabama issued posthumous pardons.  The Scottsboro Boys were finally exonerated – more than 80 years too late.

Due Process looks at how they were framed, how they were freed after long years in prison, and how players as varied as the Communist Party, the NAACP and the U.S. Supreme Court all did their part.

Discussion includes Rutgers Law Professor Taja-Nia Henderson, an expert on race and incarceration, and Rutgers-Newark Historian James Goodman, author of the seminal work, “Stories of Scottsboro,” a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize.
