One of the early pioneers of American rock n’roll was Elvis Presley, a young, innovative crooner whose hip-thrusts jumpstarted an industry.

Or, as Minkah Makalani eloquently describes him, he is “a man of integrity free of complicity in white supremacy.” Go Set a Watchman efficiently threw a wrench into that idea of a faultless man- the book portrayed the older Atticus Finch as a clear racist, which is not role model material at all. At first glance, this may seem…
