On page 246, Miss Maudie is talking about the impact Atticus had made, and the fact that he was the only one that could have changed the peoples minds. She says, “We’re making a step.” It’s just a baby-step, but it’s a step.” She mentions that it took the jury such a long time to decide the verdict, and points out that it may be the start of a movement. The minds of the people were still not completely changed, but Atticus made progress in helping them to really consider the innocence of Tom Robinson. Miss Maudie feels that though it is a little step they have made, it is still a step, and that was more than anyone else had made so far when it came to the the white people’s thoughts on the black people.
