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."

Protest of the Scottsboro Boys Play

Some members of the African American Community do not appreciate the minstrel show. " The Scottsboro Boys case is not humorous...never give up...this is what the Freedom Party is about!"

Many valid points are made in the protest. I recommend this video, another side of the story.



Where is the humor in a miscarriage of justice? Out of controversy an awareness is created, discussion is stimulated and education may be acquired for those who have an open mind.

The minstrel show format is used to highlight the injustice of the trial. The play is not meant to be a musical comedy - it's meant to be a piece that challenges you and gets you thinking about your own prejudices.
