Still Seeking Justice: Scott Sisters Freed From Prison But Not Free

RH Reality Check’s Rachel Roth writes a thoughtful analysis of the Mississippi case of two African American sisters: “The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. devoted his life to the struggle for equality and justice. The Scott sisters’ ordeal stands in stark contrast to these ideals, recalling instead the long, sordid history of racial politics in the south, including the exploitation of African Americans’ labor, medical experimentation on African Americans, bias in the criminal justice system against African Americans, and violations of African American women’s bodies and rights.”
