“The Help” has been a treasure trove of quotes. The story takes place in the 1960s in Jackson, Mississippi.
Here’s an example:
“I feel that bitter seed growing inside a me, the one planted after Treelore died. I want to yell so loud that Baby Girl can hear me that dirty ain’t a color, disease ain’t the Negro side a town. I want to stop that moment from coming — and it come in ever white child’s life — when they start to think that colored folks ain’t as good as whites.”
