        Is To Kill A Mockingbird Still Relevant Today?

        This video from American Masters: Harper Lee: Hey, Boo highlights the social climate in the South when To Kill a Mockingbird was first published and a few years later, when the film premiered. The video highlights the reactions to the issues presented in the story. The account by Diane McWhorter, a classmate of Mary Badham (the actress who played Scout in the movie), is given special attention.

        This media asset is from American Masters Harper Lee: Hey, Boo.
