Born in 1926, Harper Lee grew up in the Southern town of Monroeville, Alabama. She attended Huntingdon College in Montgomery (1944–45), and then studied law at the University of Alabama (1945–49).

To Kill a Mocking Bird

A black man is charged with the rape of a white girl. A very respectable lawyer named Atticus has to defend the negro. It is actually the father of the white girl who abuses his daughter and the book is about racism, empathy and the fact that it is a sin to kill a mockingbird as all they do is sing their hearts out for us which relates to how the negro was killed because it was believed he raped the girl but he didn\'t.

John F. Kennedy

During John F. Kennedys presidency we were currently fighting the Vietnam war. The economy was doing pretty good after World War 2. We were in a Cuban missile crisis with Cuba during JFK presidency. I think people liked him.
