17 Stories of Injustice to Watch After When They See Us
To Kill a Mockingbird
Much like the story of the Central Park Five, To Kill a Mockingbird tells the story of a black man who is wrongfully accused of assaulting a woman. In Mockingbird, though, the story takes place in Alabama, and is meant to highlight the injustice of the Jim Crowe South.
To Kill A Mockingbird is one of the archetypal stories about injustice, and about those who wage wars against it. It’s told from the perspective of a child, in part to highlight just how ridiculous our problems and prejudices often are. Treating people decently is not hard, and that’s the message this movie drives home.
