This week in class, we’re reading “The Scottsboro Boys” by Jessica McBirney.
In “The Scottsboro Boys,” Jessica McBirney discusses the historic event in which nine black boys were wrongfully accused and convicted of assault.
As we read, we will be discussing the themes of Justice, Freedom & Equality, Prejudice & Discrimination, and Social Change & Revolution as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :
“What is fair?”, “What are the effects of prejudice?”, and “How do people create change?”
