Storyboard Text

  • Maycomb Police
  • In Maycomb Alabama, the Finch family is introduced.​ Atticus, the father, is a prominent lawyer. However, the narrator explains that it is a time of racism and prejudice.
  • Guilty!
  • A young black man is accused of raping a white woman and Atticus is asked to defend him. However, this task is not easy due to the people's prejudice and preconceived guilt for Tom Robinson.
  • Atticus’ children Scout and Jem become the center of attention because their father is representing a black man. Throughout the trial the children go through tribulations of their own as they learn valuable lessons about what is right, justice, and commitment!
  • Tom is found guilty and Atticus’ innocent children cannot believe that the people they know could send an innocent man to the electric chair.
  • One man in particular that has made his disapproval of Atticus well know has been Bob Ewell. During the novel he made threats to both Atticus and Tom’s wife Helen. The children fear he will do something to hurt their father.
  • In the end, Ewell goes after Scout and Jem instead of Atticus like they predicted. In the process, a reclusive neighbor named Boo Radley that the children told stories about and was considered the haunt of the neighborhood grabs Ewell's knife and kills him. ​
