How did the supreme court affect the U.S. during the civil rights movement?
How does that contribute to To Kill a Mockingbird?
The supreme court had a very big impact on the civil rightsmovement which is why it is so important to our history.
Yeah, like the Plessy vs. Ferguson case in 1896. The supreme court’s decision supported segregation. The decision made segregation constitutional in public facilities if the they were “equal”, but they hardly ever were. It made it very difficult for change in the struggle for African American equality.
So, how does this all contribute to the novel To Kill A Mockingbird?
Well, T.K.A.M. took place during The Great Depression which dealt with segregation especially in small southern towns like Maycomb, AL in the book.
This topic relates to the novel because in the book it reflects the effects of the supreme courts decisions. For example in the book, Tom Robinson was accused of rape and Scout's dad wanted to defend him but he was criticized and his children were bullied. This was all due to the fact of segregation that the supreme court supported and how it was seen bad to show any form of integration.
