First, we speak with actress Mary Badham, who is best known for playing protagonist Scout in the 1962 film adaptation of To Kill a Mockingbird, and at the time, becoming the youngest person to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress.
Badham is currently playing Mrs. Dubose in the national tour of Aaron Sorkin's stage adaptation of To Kill a Mockingbird, and she continues to spread the story's message of social injustice across the U.S.
To Kill a Mockingbird will be at the Hobby Center for the Performing Arts in Houston until April 30, 2023. For more information, click here.

Dr. El-Sayed also discusses flaws in the system we currently have, his thoughts on possible solutions, and the obstacles preventing change from being implemented.
