Format: Hardcover
Heywood Patterson's and Earl Conrad's collaboration on this book has served both of them, and those events of which it tells, extremely well. The writing or storytelling at times becomes very nearly vocal and is always utterly compelling. The character of Heywood Patterson, and the nature of his plight, is lucidly described and explored in wonderfully appropriate language that is frequently poetic and disarmingly insightful. It makes the terrible events of that Alabama day and all the days that followed a living reality. It speaks across time of a wrong that was never righted, lest it be in the hearts and minds of those who come after and, reading this book, and knowing of what it speaks, find some strength to oppose injustice wherever and whenever it appears.

Heywood Patterson LIVES!

The previous review says it all. It is hard to explain the degree to which I was moved by the story.

Format: Hardcover
Haywood Patterson's autobiography, is a lost classic of American literature. Tragically, Patterson died of cancer in a Michigan prison at only 36 after being convicted of a Detroit bar room murder , with most of his adult life spent in Alabama's brutal prison system as one of the Scottsboro Boys framed for rape. "Scottsboro Boy" is tautly written, full of psychological and social insight, a testimony to the triumph of the unbroken human will in the harshest of circumstances. Nearly all the Scottsboro Boys suffered intensely, though none as much as Patterson. Their families are not owed official apologies but millions in damages for lives lost to Southern racism and injustice.
