Harper Lee's social influence
Harper Lee is best known for her first book and Pulitzer Prize winning novel, To Kill A Mockingbird. Her novel was published in 1960 and first released on July 11, 1960. More recently, Harper Lee's second book, Go Set A Watchman, was released April 14, 2015 and made 2015's best seller list.
Harper Lee's book, To Kill A Mockingbird, is still around today and unfortunately so is segregation, just a lot less. The character Atticus Finch believed the law should be the same for everyone, no matter their race. The court was not fair toward Tom Robinson, and even today we have had reports of our law enforcement wrongly treating African American minors and even shooting them.
