How Did Tom Robinson Obtain Justice

Good Essays
Through the compelling court case of Tom Robinson and other relevant events, Harper Lee reveals that even in the most fair place to obtain justice, the courtroom, injustice has been and still is a part of society. Throughout most of the story, themes of injustice and bias, especially in race and gender, play a major role and impact the outcome of many events that take place. For example, the climax event of the book; the trial of Tom Robinson. Throughout the trial, the lawyer for the defendant, Atticus, repeatedly provides cunning and convincing evidence that shows Tom Robinson could not have been the attacker. Yet, in that time period, time and time again black people were convicted for crimes they did not commit, and Tom is unanimously convicted.
