Thank you for this article. It would make a compelling addition to any literary study of To Kill a Mockingbird, particularly in public school classrooms located in rural areas where this type of prejudice still continues (and I speak from experience). One sentence that especially spoke to me is that "A different time frame and a new zip code could change the definition of 'innocence'" . . . what a powerful statement.
As a teacher, I would highly recommend this for inclusion in classes 7th grade and up, with the best target audience probably being ages 13-16. Can you please tell me how to get permission to use your articles in the classroom?

One last comment: I firmly believe that To Kill a Mockingbird should be required reading for law students. The majority of high school graduates today have never read--or even heard of--it. There's a reason that this article has a section headed "Lawyers and Morals: Oxymoron?", and including TKAM as required law school reading certainly couldn't hurt.
