Great Depression, racial injustice, woman rights, all of this was going on during the time period that To Kill a Mockingbird time frame was based on. So much was going wrong with the United States during that time frame, it was a miracle we were able to dig ourselves out of that kind of hole. The worst part of the 1930s was the racial injustice.
