This storyboard does not have a description.
"Mr. Cunningham's basically a good man. He just has blind spots along with the rest of us."
Jem & Scout pick at their breakfast the morning of Tom Robinson's trial. Atticus is scolded by Aunt Alexandra for saying "Negroes" in front of Calpurnia. Scout is still upset that Mr.Cunningham wanted to hurt Atticus.
"Atticus Finch's a deep reader, a mighty deep reader"
"You know the court appointed him to defend this N*****"
Atticus continues to instill his wisdom.
People from all over the county show up at the courthouse to watch the trial. It seems that the only person who is not in attendance is Miss Maudie as she says "It's morbid watching a poor devil on trial for his life. Look at all these folks, its like a Roman carnival."
Jem, Scout, & Dill have to sit with Reverend Sykes as the balcony, where the colored people sit, is the only area with room in the courthouse.
Judge Taylor is the presiding judge on the Tom Robinson case. Scout describes him as a man with a reputation for running his court in an informal fashion, saying, "he sometimes put his feet up and often cleaned his fingernails with his pocketknife"
"The witness stand was to the right of Judge Taylor, and when we got to our seats Mr. Heck Tate was already on it."
