On July 7, 1981, President Ronald Reagan nominated Sandra Day O’ Connor to be the first woman Supreme Court Justice.

On July 10, 1925, the Scopes “Monkey” trial with substitute teacher John Scopes accused of teaching scientific evolution in school, began in Tennessee.  The case was seen as both a theological contest and a trial on whether modern science regarding the creation-evolution controversy should be taught in schools

On July 11, 1960, Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel To Kill a Mockingbird was published.  To Kill a Mockingbird is probably the most widely read book dealing with race in America.
