FILE - In this Sept. 27, 1946 file photo, Clarence Norris, one of nine black men involved in the 1931 Scottsboro Boys case, walks through the main cell gate at Kilby Prison in Montgomery, Ala., after receiving his parole after serving nine years of a life sentence. Norris is one of five sentenced to prison in 1937 after six years of court litigation growing out of charges that the nine African-American boys raped a white woman on a freight train. In 1933, Ruby Bates reversed earlier testimony, denying that the nine black teenagers, known as the Scottsboro Boys, had assaulted her and her companion Victoria Price. (AP Photo)
