Our Mockingbird

Our Mockingbird, a one-hour documentary, depicts how Harper Lee's classic coming of age story, To Kill A Mockingbird, still resonates in our national discourse about race, class, and justice. Our Mockingbird is also about the power of arts in education to transform lives as illustrated by a high school production of the adapted play, To Kill A Mockingbird, in Birmingham, Alabama. Two Birmingham high schools, one all-black and one all-white, collaborate on a life-changing production of the play and come to grips with the tumultuous civil rights history in their hometown. Along with the story of the high school production, scholars, writers, students, teachers, lawyers, judges, and actors all weigh in on the influence of To Kill A Mockingbird.
