Harper Lee's classic American story of courage and justice. In a small Alabama town, a black man, Tom Robinson, stands falsely accused of raping a white woman. Many townspeople would see him condemned, but attorney Atticus Finch defends Tom and demands justice. Through the trial, Atticus' children Scout and Jem and their friend Dill come face to face with realty of racism in their small town. Dr. Martin Luther King reminds us, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” This inspiring truth underlies To Kill a Mockingbird.
