"Equality may perhaps be a right, but no power on earth can ever turn it into a fact.
Ever since the beginning of recorded history, the idea of "them- and "us- has dominated people's thinking. The problem of class distinction, particularly that of racism and prejudice, has become one of the most divisive forces afflicting human society. In fact, there came a time in our history when complete separation between colored and non-colored people became a social norm observed within every community claiming to be civilized and humane. Such discrimination - segregation in schools, churches and other public institutions - led to the civil unrest, protests and violence that have become the realities of life in many parts of the world. The chaos brought about by the social inequity of the past was primarily initiated by the oppressed people themselves. Nonetheless, they're plight wouldn't have been generally fruitful if not for some of those brave-hearted men, not part of the "oppressed-, who felt that such class distinctions were wrong, and were ready to fight for what they believed was right. .
Probably one of the best works ever written that accurately portrays life, To Kill A Mockingbird won the "aww- and "ahh- of many critics and the hearts of many readers back then and is still achieving the same remarkable feat now. Set in an imaginary town in Alabama, during the Great Depression of the 1930s, To Kill A Mockingbird tells stories about childhood innocence amidst social and racial discords and economic mishaps, blindness of the American people to the public stigma that was happening right under their noses, and most importantly, the heart-touching struggle of a mockingbird-like Negro falsely accused of raping a white girl. To Kill A Mockingbird is narrated from the point of view of a girl reminiscing the days back then when she was still a child, growing and maturing physically and emotionally, from the innocence of a six-year old girl to her waking up to the realities of life, guided by the upright morals of her father.
