1930s and Harper Lee

To Kill a Mockingbird reveals much about the American society in the 1930s which creates the foundation for the main themes of the Harper Lee's first novel. The book is set in a small southern town of Maycomb, Alabama where African-American citizens are suffering widespread racial discrimination which later leads to the Jim Crow laws. The main theme is prejudice against certain groups such as the lower white class and the black community.
