As a part of the Big Read, local defense attorneys are reenacting the courtroom drama from famed novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee. Lee's only published novel touches on racism, rape, and incest set in Maycomb, Alabama in the 1930's as seen through the eyes of Scout, the young daughter of Atticus Finch.
“We know all men are not created equal in the sense some people would have us believe- some people are smarter than others, some people have more opportunity because they're born with it, some men make more money than others, some ladies make better cakes than others- some people are born gifted beyond the normal scope of men.
But there is one way in this country in which all men are created equal- there is one human institution that makes a pauper the equal of a Rockefeller, the stupid man the equal of an Einstein, and the ignorant man the equal of any college president. That institution, gentlemen, is a court.” -- Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird
