Discussion after the film will be led by Prof. Jerilyn Fisher
Released in August 2011, The Help is already surrounded by Oscar buzz! Based on the best-selling novel by Kathryn Stockett, the film takes a provocative and inspiring look at what happens when a southern town’s racial boundary is crossed by three courageous, fed-up women. The story probes how social change can be forged through their secretive, risky writing project and friendship in pre-civil rights Jackson, Mississippi, 1963.
