1: THE MIRACLE IN SCOTTSBORO BY: NICOLE JACKSON
2: A long time ago in Scottsboro, Alabama, there were a group of black boys going on a train ride to visit their grandmother in Florida.
4: The boys were excited to go on this trip. They haven't seen their grandmother since they were little boys.
6: As the boys were going to their seats, there was a group of white males seated across the aisle.
8: At this time in the world, black and whites did not like each other. They would say mean things to one other because of the hatred between the two races.
10: Haywood, one of the black boys, was the first one to sit down. William, one of the white boys, got up out of his seat and bumped the other eight boys that were waiting to be seated.
12: William led his other white friends to do the same thing. The black boys got tired of being bumped, so by the time the 4th white boys of the eight bumped into them, a fight broke out.
14: The fight caused a big ruckus. The other passengers were afraid and ran to the front of the train to get help. The fight lead all the way to the caboose.
16: In the mist of the fight, the black boys gathered their strength and threw the white boys off the train.
18: The white boys were really upset about being thrown off the train, so they went to the Sheriff's office in Scottsboro.
20: The Sheriff called the conductor of the train so they could stop it so the black boys could be arrested.
22: Once the boys were arrested, they were put in jail for nine years. Eight were sentenced to death and one was sentenced to life in prison.
24: Then a miracle happened, THE BLACK BOYS WERE INNOCENT!! AND TOLD 2 GO HOME!!
