Saginaw Silver Screen: To Kill a Mockingbird October 15
(1962) Based on Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize winning book of 1961. Atticus Finch is a lawyer in the fictional town of Maycomb, a racially divided Alabama town, set in the early 1930s, and modeled after Monroeville where Harper Lee grew up. Finch agrees to defend a young black man who is accused of raping a white woman. Many of the townspeople try to get Atticus to pull out of the trial, but he decides to go ahead. How will the trial turn out – and will it effect any changes in racial attitudes in Maycomb?
There will be an introduction and discussion prior to the movie by former Delta College professor Mitchell Jarosz. Be there to learn about insights about the movie you may have never known before.
