To Kill A Mockingbird: The Arc of Justice: The Law and Civil Rights

10/16/2017 - This film is a part of our JURISCINEMA: The Law on Screen Series. Based on Harper Lee’s Pulitzer-Prize winning novel, To Kill a Mockingbird is one of the most beloved legal films of all time. Set in 1930s rural Alabama, To Kill a Mockingbird is the story of Atticus Finch, an attorney defending Tom Robinson, an African American man falsely accused of assaulting a white woman before an all white jury. Released seven years after the murder of Emmett Till and two years before the Supreme Court case Swain v. Alabama emboldened attorneys’ use of peremptory challenges to create all-white juries (a decision later overturned in Batson v. Kentucky), To Kill a Mockingbird is a moving story of the fight for justice in the face of deeply entrenched institutional racism that remains as powerful and relevant today as it was at the time of its release.
