Because without it the book wouldn't have as much of an impact.  Segregation was hell for those involved, plain and simple. To  sugarcoat it would all but strip the experience bare. I would  rather have to deal with a few "N" words, than to be prevented from  reading this novel.

Yes, she grew up a tomboy who often got in fights, talked back to teachers, and had no interest in early schooling. ^__^ She was a pretty tough cookie as a child if you ask me.

She sat for very, very few interviews. Harper Lee was an intensely private person.
He using a child's perspective to an adult problem and letting the child show why things have to be the way they are just because the people of that age and time believe in a certain way. That things are Iron clad no matter if the man is innocent, how could a white person be wrong. The child...

Jem is shown as growing up right after the trial, when he realizes the world is a harsh place. Scout grows up when she is attacked by Bob Ewell and saved by "Boo" Radley. She realizes how he is a mockingbird, and how the world really is.
Children are the most simple people on the world.Mockingbird means simple and innocent in this book.Kids are innocent ,they just like mockingbird.Therefore the author choose to tell to kill a mockingbird theough the eyes of a young child.

Obviously, something that belonged to her father
Harper Lee refers a mocking bird to a black person. A black person doesn't do anything to us just like a mocking bird. therefore it is a sin to kill a mocking bird/ black person. hope it helps!
No one but Ms. Lee and those with whom she has been intimate know. It is possible, before his death, her childhood and lifelong friend Truman Capote may have known.
