What Gregory Peck was proclaiming in the movie “To Kill a Mockingbird,” was the built in notion that whites and blacks do not mix in the  ignorant ideology of Jim Crow Laws.   This movie was made right after the battle over Jim Crow Laws in the 1950s. This movie was and still is a classic.  The girl kissed a black man, and then from her ignorance, blamed the man of sexual harassment.

It was a very disturbing time to be a black American in the 1950s.  When there was an economic rise for the whites, the African-American culture was still kept in the back of the bus. There schools, churches and housing were a disgrace.  The golden years that everyone dreams for it to be again, was not so golden for half of our country.
