famous. Lee's story of the events the trial has been admired for it is portrayal of Southern life
during the 1930s, not only for examination of the causes and effects of racism, but because it
created a model of tolerance and courage in the character of Atticus Finch.
The story happened in the Maycomb small town in Alabama, where black folks are served
discrimination and racism.
After read this book, I can say that Atticus Finch can called hero. He is a lawyer and devoted
father. He teaches his children and the people of Maycomb how to stand up for one's belief in
the face of prejudice and ignorance even when faced with the possibility of being looked down
upon and scorned. Atticus looked past the racism that was in the courtroom where Tom was
being accused of raping a woman and he stood up for him. Atticus believed in equality
amongst people. He is the father of two children, which educates with the help of Calpurnia.
