The book to Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee speaks on the corruption of stereotyping and racism during the 1930s in Maycomb, Alabama. Lee holds courageous characters throughout the story. Scout Finch and her brother, Jem Finch spend a lot of their time hanging out with Dill Harris. They spend their time often spying on their mysterious neighbor, Boo Radley. Scout and Jem’s father, Atticus Finch, goes out and defends an African American man, Tom Robinson, who was accused of rape. Robinson is convicted even though Atticus proved he could have not committed the crime. Robinson stayed courageous during the whole trial, while he knew he could not possibly win because he was colored. Atticus tries to explain to the children as to why Robinson was not found innocent.
