ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the Scottsboro case. He refers to those men who after six years in prison were accused of a crime for which the penalty is death and have never been able to secure a fair trial. He argues that whatever any man's opinion of the guilt, they are entitled to a trial which the least of their rights is guarded by the courts and by every official of the State.
