Biography | The Website of Congressman John Lewis, Serving the 5th Congressional District of Georgia | Atticus | Scoop.it
Christopher M.'s insight:

THis is one of the other scoops

 

This man is very similar to Atticus because he was a very forward thinking man who knew that segregation was wrong and he was willing to lead the antisegregation movement. Atticus also knew that the segregation was wrong and that blacks and whites were equal, and he was willing to defend African Americans no matter what other poeplae say.

Law & Order TV Show Series on NBC: Find Cast Info and Episode Guide . NBC Official Site | Atticus | Scoop.it
Christopher M.'s insight:

This is one of the other four scoops.

 

Atticus would like this show because it is about the how criminal process - which Atticus is very familiar with - works when a shocking case, such as Tom Robinson's case, is presented. The show also challenges your definitions of what is right and what is wrong, which Atticus might like because his definitions are very different then the definitions of other people in Maycomb.

Who Is It - Michael Jackson

Who Is It - Michael Jackson | Atticus | Scoop.it

Michael Jackson - Who Is It Lyrics. 

Christopher M.'s insight:

This song has emotions that Atticus experiences becase it is sad and remorseful. The singer is saying that he gave a lot to the girl he loved,  who then left him without a word, and now the singer is saying why. Atticus feels sad and remorseful because he tried to protect Jem and Scout, but now they are less innoncent and young because of the hate they have experienced because of their father and because of the trial that they know is unfair.

The Rise and Fall of Jim Crow . Jim Crow Stories . The Scottsboro Case | PBS | Atticus | Scoop.it
Christopher M.'s insight:

These articles are related to Atticus' plot line because it explains a case that has many similarities with Tom Robinson's case. Both cases were on charges of rape and all of the accused were guilty and sentenced to death. Both cases also had white accusers who lied to the authorities to cover up their own misdemeanors.

General Article: The Great Depression
Christopher M.'s insight:

This show is related to Atticus' plot line because he lived during this time and it explains how people are very poor and can give nothing as payment. For example, the Cunninghams had no money to give them when Atticus represented them in court, because they were hit very hard by the Depression

A closer look at the Victory of Samothrace | Musée du Louvre

A closer look at the Victory of Samothrace | Musée du Louvre | Atticus | Scoop.it
A peerless masterpiece of Greek sculpture, the Winged Victory of Samothrace standing on the prow of a ship overlooked the sanctuary of the Great Gods on the island of Samothrace.
Christopher M.'s insight:

This sculpture conveys the feeling that Atticus experinces in his job as a lawyer while defending Tom Robinson. The sculpture looks like it is walking forcefuly forward, and Atticus feels that the general opinion of Tom Robinson and Blacks means that Tom Robinson is simply waiting for his conviction and Atticus can only walk with him to his conviction.

Blackbird - Beatles, The | Atticus | Scoop.it
Beatles, The - Blackbird Lyrics. Beatles, The The Beatles [White Album] Blackbird Blackbird singing in the dead of night Take these broken wings and learn to fly All your li
Christopher M.'s insight:

This song has one theme - hope - that Atticus experiences. In the beginning of the song, the singer states that the blackbird should "take these broken wings and learn to fly", which means that the blackbird can still find hope in something that is wrong, just like African Americans, who persevered even when experiencing hate. This theme is also experienced by Atticus, when he sees that even though Tom Robinson has been guilty, he can be acquitted by an appeals court. He knows that all hope is not lost.

Million Man March Poem by Maya Angelou

Million Man March Poem by Maya Angelou | Atticus | Scoop.it

Million Man March Poem - by Maya Angelou. 

Christopher M.'s insight:

This poem depicts similar emotions that Atticus faces when he represents Tom Robinson. In the beginning, the poet says that "...throughout history you've worn a badge of shame." The poet means that African Americans had faced a lot of hate and suffering because of thier color of skin. This is similar to how Atticus feels beacuse he recieves the same of hate because he is representing Tom Robinson. However, the poet also says "The ancestors remind us, despite the history of pain, we are a going-on people who will rise again." This means that although African Americans have recieved much suffering, they will persevere and will be treated as equals in the end. This is similar to Atticus because he knows that African Americans are equal and he is ready to defend his belief in spite of the criticism he recieves.

Nerf N-Strike Elite Centurion Blaster | Outdoor Games for ages 8 YEARS & UP | Hasbro | Atticus | Scoop.it

Nerf N-Strike Elite Centurion Blaster

Christopher M.'s insight:

Atticus might like this Nerf Gun because he likes to shoot guns and is very good at it but dislikes the violence and responsibilty. With this nerf gun he can still enjoy his talent of shooting a gun but without the usual consequences of a normal gun. He might also like this because as a child he would complain about wasting ammunition if he shot 14 doves with 15 bullets, and now since the bullets are reusable he doesn't have to worry about wasting any more ammo.

"Golden Rule"

"Golden Rule" | Atticus | Scoop.it

The painting "Golden Rule" by Norman Rockwell

Christopher M.'s insight:

This work of art depicts the "Golden Rule:" Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. I feels that Atticus feels that this rule is true but is not being followed. It also depicts people of many different ethnicities, which implies that the rule applies to everyone, not just whites, which is what most people in Maycomb feel and what Atticus feels is wrong.
