In this Ryan Walker editorial cartoon – published four days after the conclusion of the Scottsboro trial – a member of the Ku Klux Klan seizes a Black baby from a cradle and charges him with rape. The jury instantly convicts the baby, and the judge instantly sentences him to death; the Klansman emphasizes that this has been a fair trial, and is preferable to a lynching.
