The "Scottsboro Stories" blog reflects the writings, photographs, arrangements, opinions and musings of me, Garry L. Morgan, only. I do not represent the Scottsboro Boys Museum or the Scottsboro Multicultural Foundation - the parent organization of the Scottsboro Boys Museum. I receive no profit from this endeavor. This blog is for educational purposes and that of open expression about racial and sexual discrimination, institutional and personal racism and the deadliest war of all time - "The Culture War."

Presentation at Historic Joyce Chapel, Researching African American Genealogy

Ms. Franzine Taylor gives an excellent presentation on researching African American genealogy. After the presentation Ms. Taylor offered her books for sale, graciously signing each book.

Ms. Taylor has a distinguished carrier, she was the Head of Reference at the Alabama Department of Archives and History and is an expert on Alabama Records at the Alabama Department of Archives and History, Ms. Taylor recently retired.




An excellent resource book for all genealogists. Ms. Taylor points out that African American ancestry research becomes difficult prior to 1870 due to slavery.

Ms. Sheila Washington introduces Ms. Franzine Taylor and Mr. Elliot Miller.


Mr. Elliot Miller makes presentation to the Scottsboro Boys Museum of his sketch of the Scottsboro Boys. Mr. Miller stated he hoped his art would help people to see the reality of the African American struggle in our community.

Mr. Miller discussed race relations in Scottsboro. Mr. Miller indicated to the group at Joyce Chapel that he believed the City Council should adopt a Resolution of Apology to the African American community for Jim Crow discriminatory practices which has occurred in Scottsboro's history.
