In 1944, Recy Taylor, a 24-year-old black mother, was gang-raped by six white boys in Alabama - a sadly common crime in the Jim Crow South. While few of these crimes were reported as the victims were in fear for their lives if they spoke up, Ms. Taylor bravely identified her rapists. This is her story.
