MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A group of lawmakers and others will have a
news conference to announce legislation being introduced to exonerate
the nine Scottsboro Boys, accused of raping two white women in 1931.
A news conference has been scheduled for 11 a.m. Monday at the Alabama Statehouse.
A group that includes Democratic and Republican
lawmakers says it is supporting a resolution and a bill that would
exonerate the men, now deceased, known as the Scottsboro Boys.
Those attending the news conference will include
Sheila Washington, founder and director of the Scottsboro Boys Museum
and Cultural Center.
Only one of the nine Scottsboro Boys, Clarence Norris, was formally pardoned while he was still alive.
The nine black teenagers were arrested when a sheriff's posse stopped a train at Paint Rock.
