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."

Black Star News: "Offensive Scottsboro Boys Should Fail At TONY- Competition is tough this week, thankfully, so “Scottsboro Boys” has little hope of winning any honors. “Scottsboro” does not stand a chance against “Sister Act,” also nominated for musical." http://blackstarnews.com/news/135/ARTICLE/7432/2011-06-09.html

History of the Minstrel Show: http://black-face.com/minstrel-shows.htm  Black-face performers are, "...the filthy scum of white society, who have stolen from us a complexion denied them by nature, in which to make money, and pander to the corrupt taste of their white fellow citizens." -- Frederick Douglass

"Black-face is more than just burnt cork applied as makeup. It is a style of entertainment based on racist Black stereotypes that began in minstrel shows and continues to this day." A History: http://black-face.com/index.htm
