The Help by Kathryn Stockett takes place in Jackson, Mississippi in 1692. The main focus of the book is to expose the injustice and discrimination that maids, or “the help,” have to deal with every day when they work for white women. The story is told from three different points of view. The first point of view comes from Skeeter, a young white woman that just graduated college and it trying to get a job in the publishing business. Aibileen and Minny are two black maids and they also help tell the story from their point of view. This book offers three new perspectives of the racial prejudice that occurred in the south and it is an accurate portrayal of everyday life during the civil rights movement.
