This is the VOA Special English Education Report.

Millions of high school students have "To Kill a Mockingbird." The novel by Harper Lee offers moral about racial justice and respect. It tells the story of a young girl named Scout and her father, Atticus Finch, a . He defends a black man wrongfully accused of raping a white woman. In the end, an all-white jury sentences Tom Robinson to death.

The book is set in the American South in the nineteen thirties. But it was published fifty years ago, on July eleventh, nineteen sixty. It came out as the civil rights movement in the United States was gaining . Laws and customs in the South, however, still kept blacks and whites mostly separated.

A mockingbird is a kind of gray . The book gets its title from something Atticus Finch was told in his childhood when his father gave him a gun. Gregory Peck won an Academy Award for the nineteen sixty-two film version.

ATTICUS FINCH: "I remember when my daddy first gave me that gun, he told me that I should never at anything in the house, and that I could shoot all the blue jays I wanted, if I could hit them. But remember, it was a to kill a mockingbird."

Killing them is a sin, he explains, because they don't anyone, they just make music. And that is the moral of the story, says Melinda Byrd-Murphy, head of the Alabama Center for Literary Arts.

She has read the book four times.

MELINDA BYRD-MURPHY: "I think if anything, this story talks about and the universality of humans and how there's goodness in people and you just have to get to know one another."

Ms. Byrd-Murphy is a native of Harper Lee's hometown of Monroeville. The author, who published only the one novel, is still alive but rarely speaks .

Some people say "To Kill a Mockingbird" treats racism in a way that is simplistic, even offensive to blacks, and out of date in today's America. Still, it has been into more than forty languages and has sold over forty million copies. It won a Pulitzer Prize and is often reading in high school.

The story in a town that Harper Lee called Maycomb. But she based the characters on real people she knew growing up.

Since then, Monroeville has changed a lot. A number of African-Americans serve in the local government. The , made famous by the book, is now a museum. A small shop and a fast-food restaurant called Mel's Dairy Dream have replaced Harper Lee's home.

But in Monroeville and around the country, fans of "To Kill a Mockingbird" are celebrating its fiftieth anniversary. Events include readings, discussions and movie .

And that's the VOA Special English Education Report, with reporting by AnnaBoiko-Weyrauch. I'm Steve Ember.
