In recognition of Black History Month (February), I am looking forward to hosting and welcoming you to a robust and thought-provoking discussion about the story told in "To Kill A Mockingbird." The book was written by Harper Lee and published in 1960. The story intertwines the work of an attorney (a single father) who is defending an innocent black man accused of rape, the coexistence of white and black communities in the 1930s, the struggle for justice and civil rights, the mysterious neighbors that intrigues neighborhood children, and Scout -- the little girl who tells the story. Scout's narration is just as important since it has its own lessons about tolerance, acceptance and questioning racism.
This event will be very informal and planned as a thoughtful discussion. Segments of the film will be shown, stopped intermittently for discussion and sharing. It is a very interesting movie to watch. You could also borrow the book from the Gulfport Library. Please join us!
