There are a number of points when this happens in the novel. I think the most poignant moment is right after the jury delivered the guilty verdict to Tom Robinson. As Atticus leaves the court room all the black people stand. The Reverend asks Scout and Jem to stand as well in honour of their father; he is that rare man that stands up in the face of injustice no matter the personal cost. Scout realizes just what kind of a man that her father is.

When he shot the dog.
