This article examines the trial of the \"Charlotte Three,\" African-American civil rights activists convicted of burning a Charlotte horse stable in 1969. The trial typified trials of activists around the South in the 1960s-70s. The strict sentences given to the defendants on the basis of dubious testimony and on prosecutors seeking convictions at all costs, contributed to the demise of civil rights activism.
