Scottsboro Boys Exhibit

February 9 @ 8:00 AM - 9:00 PM

This February, the museum brings its travel exhibition to Huntsville-Madison County Library Downtown Branch. The exhibit tells the complex story of the arrests, trials, and the case’s global impact. It also discusses Huntsville’s connections to the case, including the lives of Ruby Bates and Victoria Price, the two Huntsville mill workers who claimed they were attacked by the nine African Americans. A special section on Clarence Watts, the local attorney who defended the Scottsboro Boys during the latter part of the trials, is displayed as well.
