Good episode? Give it some love!
On this edition of "Two Way Street," we're asking the question—who is Atticus Finch? He was a beloved champion of justice in “ To Kill a Mockingbird ” but a bigot in “ Go Set a Watchman .” That question—of who Atticus Finch is really—is now the subject of a lawsui t. Harper Lee’s estate is suing writer, Aaron Sorkin, for how he portrays Atticus Finch in his Broadway adaptation of “To Kill a Mockingbird.” It’s a question we’ve also asked ourselves. After the release of “Go Set a Watchman,” we invited Bitter Southerner editor Chuck Reece and Emory University historian Joseph Crespino to discuss what they make of this new Atticus. This conversation originally aired on August 1st, 2015.
