Scottsboro Boys Pardo_Rich copy.jpg

FILE - In this July 26, 1937 file photo, New York attorney Samuel Leibowitz, center, stands in his office in New York with four of the "Scottsboro Boys," from left, Willie Robertson, Eugene Williams, Roy Wright, and Olen Montgomery. Levin is credited with saving from death all but one of the nine black teens who were wrongly convicted of raping two white women in 1931. In a final chapter to one of the most important civil rights episodes in American history, Alabama lawmakers voted Thursday, April 4, 2013 to give posthumous pardons to the "Scottsboro Boys".
