This storyboard does not have a description.
The Finches live in Maycomb, Alabama. So far they have not been struggling with anything. Atticus, the father, is a lawyer. The narrator explains that it is a time of racism and prejudice.
Scout, the narrator, talks about the summer that Dill came over. Scout, Jem and Dill make it a mission to get Boo Radley out. Boo never comes out of his house but that doesn't stop the kids from trying.
A black man named Tom Robinson was accused of raping a white woman and Atticus was told to defend him. It wasn't easy for Atticus because he had to overcome the prejudice people of Maycomb and what they had against Tom Robinson.
Jem and Scout are more recognizable because their father is defending a black man. Even after Atticus's inspirational speech, Tom is found guilty. The kids can't believe that people would send an innocent man to jail.
The father of the white woman, Bob Ewell, threatens Atticus for going against him. Jem and Scout worry about what Mr. Ewell will do to hurt their father.
In the end, Bob Ewell goes after Scout and Jem instead of Atticus. Coming to their rescue, Boo finally comes out of his house and saves the kids. No one knows for sure what happened because it was pitch black when the event occurred but it was said that Mr. Ewell fell on the knife and killed himself.
