Harper Lee was more than the sum of her words, as powerful as they were.
For any student of Southern Stoicism, it fits that Atticus Finch was a magnanimous defender of the black person’s rights in the 1930s yet an endorser of illegal responses to that person’s rights in the 1950s.
Two of the Harper Lee’s legendary characters don’t think much of the place where I and millions of other students first met them.
Humanity means being complex. That’s why it’s real for Harper Lee to portray Atticus Finch as both a racist and as a would-be racial reconciler.
