The Scottsboro Boys is the real-life story of nine young African American men living in the South in 1931, and the harrowing path of injustice and racism that took 82 years to unravel. In 1931, nine black men were ripped from a train in Alabama and accused of rape by two white women. Hauled to jail without a shred of actual evidence against them, The Scottsboro Boys were rushed through trial procedures, found guilty and sentenced to death. What occurred in the years following the trials was a harrowing tale of bravery and strength in the face of great adversity. All performances are at the Kennedy Theatre in the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts.  After the performances on Sunday, September 8th and the Saturday, September 14th matinee performance, Theatre Raleigh will host a talkback to discuss the show with the show’s dramaturge Moses T. Alexander Greene. Single tickets are $35 for adults and $32.50 for Senior/Student/Military. Premium seating is also available for $45.
