The Searching the Psyche through Cinema continues with the Oscar-winning classic To Kill a Mockingbird, a story that unfolds through the eyes of a precocious tomboy who struggles with prejudice even as her father stands against racial persecution.

The post-film discussion will be led by psychoanalyst Sue Russell, Ph.D., and Dan Winter, executive director of the Western Missouri and Kansas ACLU. Co-sponsored by the Greater Kansas City and Topeka Psychoanalytic Center and UMKC.
