Judge Horton and the Scottsboro Boys

Judge Horton and the Scottsboro Boys (1976)

"The compelling drama of nine black youths, one white man, and a struggle to save American justice."

In 1930s Alabama, nine young black men are accused of raping two white women. The judge in the case, unlike the rest of the town, comes to believe that the boys are innocent and, against all advice from his friends and family, sets them free, which turns the entire community against him.
