Monday, April 2, 2001 (9-10:30 pm)
In March 1931, two white women stepped from a box car in Paint Rock,
Alabama, to make a shocking accusation: they had been raped by nine
black teenagers on the train. This documentary, nominated for an
Academy Award(r), presents the story of the trial of the nine falsely
accused teens which drew North and South into their sharpest conflict
since the Civil War, yielded two momentous Supreme Court decisions and
gave birth to the civil rights movement. (CC, Stereo, WWW:
