Nine African-American, Alabama teenage boys were arrested in 1931 on a charge of raping two white girls on a train in Jackson County , Alabama. The trials and appeals lasted for years and went all the way to the US Supreme Court. The boys' cause was taken up by the International Labor Defense (ILD), the legal wing of the American Communist Party. The case was partly funded by the sale of various pins such as this one, made by Local 4 of the Amalgamated Lithographers of America in Chicago. Their stamp is on the back of the 7/8" pin, along with a Union Label and an item # 1215675. Conditon is VG- with a few small scratches and some minor rust on the pin back. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 0 pages
