The book introduced beloved characters Atticus Finch, Scout and Boo Radley, as it told the story of a small-town Southern lawyer who defended an African American man accused of rape. The novel, released at the height of the Civil Rights movement, put a personal spin on tense, racial issues in the South by placing a relatable story into the hands of every American student.
