What did the Scottsboro Boys have to do with 'To Kill a Mockingbird'?
The Scottsboro Boys were nine innocent African American teenage boys who were tried and convicted of rape in Scottsboro, Alabama, in 1931, in a terrible miscarriage of justice. Tom Robinson represents the Scottsboro Boys because he gets accused of the same thing and is also sentenced to death even though he is innocent. He is only convicted because of his color. The Scottsboro Boys were nine black teenage boys accused of rape in Alabama in 1931. The Scottsboro Boys, as they became known, at the time were defended by many in the North and attacked by many in the South.
