Maia Herod writes the following about Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry :
This book s a very good book. It is a book about the struggles of the Logan family during segregation time. They were trying to keep their 400 acres of land. They go through fighting, meeting new people and fires. The Logan family is made up of Cassie, Little Man, Christopher-John, Ma, Big Ma, and Papa. They all have their own struggles at school, at home, at work and in their hometown. They all have conflicts with the Wallace's; Mama does not allow them to go to the Wallace store. All the Logan kids get into trouble, Little Man likes to keep clean which gets him into trouble sometimes. Cassie likes to mind other people's business. Stacie likes to be his own person which sometimes gets him into trouble. Along the way we meet Mr Morrison who comes to protect the Logan family but they tell everyone that he is there to help them pick cotton. One night Cassie sees the night men coming but they turn around because it was the wrong house.Everyone was ready to protect themselves with rifles, hand guns, and their fists. The night men tar & feather people, burn people but they don't like it when people do something to them. If you lived during this time and you were black you will have to walk miles to school and the white kids have a bus and you walk to school and sometimes you have to jump the gulley when you see the bus driver who likes to cover you with (red) murky water. You have to back off a bridge if you see a white man coming over the bridge and wait until he passes. If you read this book you will get a taste of what it was like to live through segregation.I hope you like this book as much as I do.
