Description

In this lesson, students will read about and discuss the Scottsboro Trials from the 1930s. This miscarriage of justice clearly demonstrates why the ability to appeal is essential to our judicial system. The story also shows the struggle for racial equality, and the importance of the right to counsel and fair trial for all Americans.
