The story of the Scottsboro Boys is based on a trial that hinged on one person's word against another. After this program was aired, Victoria Price Street sued NBC for libel and invasion of privacy. The suit was eventually dropped.

Revised editions of Dan Carter's book Scottsboro: A Tragedy of the American South (upon which this film was based) includes a last chapter detailing the last Scottsboro trial.
