James Allen on Scottsboro--"Smash The Scottsboro Lynch Verdict,"
published by Workers Library, April 1933. Impassioned, point-of-view
prose calls readers to action: Demand that African Americans
be guaranteed their right to sit on juries, to vote, to hold office,
to enjoy equal rights! March and protest against Jim Crowism,
lynching, persecution! Allen was historian and communist; in this pamphlet,
take special note of Scottsboro Boy Haywood Paterson, International
Labor Defense, and Communist Party efforts to free young Black
men falsely accused of rape in Deep South.
