Prof. Ifill Discusses 'To Kill a Mockingbird' on Steiner Show

Professor Sherrilyn Ifill, a nationally recognized civil rights expert and advocate, recently appeared on The Marc Steiner (WEAA 88.9 FM) to discuss the 50-year legacy of Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, on the golden anniversary of its publication. Ifill, who published a 2008 Maryland Bar Journal article about the influence of the novel, was joined by novelist Madison Smartt Bell in a thoughtful discussion about why the novel is still one of America’s leading novels about racial injustice.

Listen to the full segment from the June 7, 2010 edition of The Marc Steiner show here.

Professor Ifill will be appearing with Pulitzer Prize winning author Taylor Branch to talk about To Kill a Mockingbird at the Northwood branch of the Enoch Pratt Free Library in Baltimore on June 23 at 6 p.m. Contact the Pratt Library for more information.
