We Love It: Set in Jackson, Mississippi, in 1962, Stockett's debut novel centers on two black
women working in white households and a young white reporter who teams up with
them to expose the truth of what "the help" endure. Although
Stockett's inspiring story had some detractors, she opened a new channel in our
national conversation about race.
The conversation is far from over. Twenty, 30 or 50 years later, where are
these women and their children? What has changed in their world? What hasn't?
