[1.7 MiB] Quicklet on Kathryn Stockett's The Help (CliffNotes-like Book Summary) books by Lacey Kohlmoos

ABOUT THE BOOK

It is the early 1960s and the world is beginning to change, but not in Jackson, Mississippi. Old white families run the city from their farms, formerly called plantations. The Junior League is full of former debutantes who love nothing more than to gossip about what Jackie Kennedy is wearing, and about each other. The sole goal of every woman is to get married, which is the only real reason to go to college, and you're a spinster if you haven't landed a man by 23. Jim Crow Laws dictate all race relations, and the Civil Rights Movement hasn't taken hold here yet. Racial tensions are rising, but the black maids still go to work sitting in the back of the bus. White babies are raised by black women, and then taught to hate them by white parents who only come on the scene once the kids are potty trained.

This is the setting for Kathryn Stockett's runaway 2009 hit novel, The Help. It tells the story of three women who dare to give a voice to the black maids of Jackson. Although the project is rife with danger, Skeeter Phelan, Aibileen Clark, and Minny Jackson compile a book of stories about working for white women told from the perspective of the black maids.
