In To Kill A Mockingbird Atticus is a Lawyer and was assigned to help Tom Robinson win a case hat could change the rest of his life, but in that case, Tom is a African American being falsely accused of raping and attacking Mayella Ewell, a white young lady. Which is sort of similar to The Scottsboro Case because two women accuse 9 men also African American of raping them. They are alike because in both situations there are african americans being accused of something they clearly didnt do, which isnt right, they are automatically guilty because the color of their skin.
