Storyboard Text

  • Introduction to Maycomb County
  • There's four kinds of folks in the world. There's the ordinary kind like us and the neighbors, there's the kind like the Cunninghams out in the woods, the kind like the Ewells down at the dump, and the Negroes. (chap 23, p 258)
  • The African American Community
  • In our courts, when it's a white man's word against a black man's, the white man always wins. They're ugly, but those are the facts of life. (chap 23, p 251-252)
  • The Poor
  • They didn't have to go to school, for one thing. Another thing, Mr. Bob Ewell, Burris's father, was permitted to hunt and trap out of season. ( chap 3, p34)
  • You. Miss Scout Finch, are the common folk. You must obey the law. (chap 3, p34)
  • In this scene, Jem gives a simple explanation of the social classes of Maycomb County to Scout of the four main groups of people in Maycomb.
  • The Working Class
  • Are we as poor as the Cunninghams? (chap 2, p23)
  • Maycomb County like most of the world is extremely racist. Simply because African Americans have different coloured skin they are treated terribly and given small jobs. Their word has little value and their work has little value, so therefore even though they work hard at a job they won't get paid well or treated fairly like a white person would.
  • The Middle Class
  • Atticus derived a reasonable income from the law. (chap 1, p5)
  • Atticus explains to Scout that being "common folk" that they must obey the law but 'white trash' like the Ewells are allowed leeway because they are white so even though they don't work and just break the law to survive, they can because they aren't African American.
  • The Upper Class
  • [Mr. Dolphus Raymond], he owns all one side of the riverbank down there, and he's from a real old family to boot. (chap 16, p183)
  • Jem, Scout and Atticus are discussing the ways of the Cunninghams. Jem asks Atticus if they are as poor as the Cunninghams to which he replies that they aren't because the Cunninghams are farmers. While Atticus' family is poor because of the depression they aren't as poor.
  • Not exactly. The Cunninghams are country folks, farmers, and the crash hit them hardest.
  • Everyone is fairly poor at this time, even the weathly, but depending on who you are and your occupation you might be very poor, somewhat poor or not too poor. Atticus falls under somewhat poor because as a lawyer he is considered middle class.
  • Dolphus comes from a wealthy white family and has gained wealth and property from it which makes him apart of the upper class.
