Abstract:
At the 50th anniversary of the publication of Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird, the South portrayed in by the book in the 1930s is compared with the 1980s and the 2000s. Class and race are still major issues in the South. The quality and value of the book from the perspective of an black, adult woman are shared. One conclusion drawn is that the book causes people to think of reminds us of growing up and when we recognized how the world works and the book is one that forces white individuals to examine racial and class divides in the South today.
