Transcript of Great Depression VS. To Kill A Mockingbird

The Great Depression VS. To Kill A Mockingbird Quote:To Maycomb, Tom's death was typical. Typical of a nigger ... to cut and run. Typical of a nigger's mentality to have no plan, no thought for the future, just run blind first chance he saw.(25.25) In the Great Depression there was still much racism going on, as well as in the novel; To Kill A Mockingbird. I chose this picture because it has a lot to do with racism because this house in only for, african americans. To kill a mockingbird is related to the great depression, because it takes place during that time. remember when atticus quit the farm and went back to school as a lawyer? he did that because during the depression, farmers were hit the hardest. This picture reminds me of Atticus, because it looks like he's about to set out and do something with his life.
Quote: You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view–until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.-Atticus This is a picture of a slave from the Great Depression.
just like in the novel To Kill A Mockngbird the Atticus
family even had a slave / or a maid.
Quote:That Calpurnia led a modest double life never dawned on me. The idea that she had a separate existence outside our household was a novel one, to say nothing of her having command of two languages. (12.138)
To Kill A Mockingbird, a novel about racial prejudice in the American South, was written by American writer Harper Lee and published 1960. It was her only novel and it won the Pulitzer Prize. Harper Lee was born April 28, 1926. Quote:Until I feared I would lose it, I never loved to read. One does not love breathing.
To Kill a Mockingbird
Scout, Chapter 2. Kids in this time of depression were not allowed to read untill a certain time. In To Kill A Mockingbird Scout was yelled at for this. Quote:So it took an eight-year-old child to bring 'em to their senses.... That proves something - that a gang of wild animals can be stopped, simply because they're still human. Hmp, maybe we need a police force of children. I chose this picture, because it reminded me from To Kill A Mockingbird,
that kids are moer powerful then people may think.
This picture also reminds me of the Great Depression tht kids
had to do work just like adults. Quote:People in their right mind never take pride in their talents.
This picture reminds me that
it does'nt matter if you're black or white,
have disabilities or not, if you set your mind to something
you can achieve it.People had to think like the to survive the Great Depression. I chose this picture, because in bothTo Kill
A Mockingbird and the Great Depression
there was racism! "Scout," said Atticus, "nigger-lover is just one of those terms ... that don't mean anything – like snot-nose. It's hard to explain – ignorant, trashy people use it when they think somebody's favoring Negroes over and above themselves. It's slipped into usage with some people like ourselves, when they want a common, ugly term to label somebody."
