This storyboard does not have a description.
The Scottsboro Boys were a group of nine African American teenagers on a train that were provoked by a group of White teenagers.
The White teenagers gathered rocks and tried to force the Black teenagers off the train, but were instead fended off and jumped off the train in humiliation.
This is a white man's train!
The White teenagers reported to the city's sheriff that they had been attacked by the Black teenagers on the train, and two women stated they had been raped by them as well. The train was stopped in Paint Rock, Alabama where the Black teenagers were promptly arrested.
