Read-It Wednesdays: Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry

Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry by Mildred Taylor is a book that I enjoy today. When I was in seventh grade, I was introduced to this book about racial injustice in Mississippi through the eyes of eight year old Cassie Logan. Cassie just a young girl who does not completely understand the racial divide in Mississippi during the Great Depression. Her parents do their best to protect her, but also caution her and her siblings. Sadly, “the night men” cause trouble for those who are African-American, including her family because they own their own land. Never the less, Cassie is able to grow up while attempting to accept that many people will not accept her for who she is based on her skin color.
