Scottsboro Trial, Scottsboro, Ala., 1931; African Americans--Civil rights--Alabama; African Americans--Imprisonment--Alabama; Miller, Benjamin Meek, 1864-1944
Five thousand Westside Negro workers in Chicago demand change of venue, protection, and immediate release after the March 133 Decatur trial. The resolution also contains demands including protection for Negro families from labor agents, relief for Negro families, and schooling for Negro children. Although many of these demands appear in resolutions sent during this period, the provisions relating to Negro families and children in this resolution are unique.
