HOW DOES THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT RELATE TO THE NOVEL<br />Both Civil Rights Movement and the novel are similar<br />Civil Rights Movement refers to giving everybody equal rights so that no race will be treated as the “lesser kind”<br />In the novel, Negros are discriminated as they are dark-skinned, thus when a white man falsely accuse Tom Robinson, a negro, of raping his daughter, he has to go to jail even though he did not commit the crime<br />
