Cassie Logan can’t understand why her father is so proud of his land and farming his own crops. Her family refuses to sell their fields to a local man despite persistent pressure to do so, but for her parents the land is a symbol of sanctuary. Over the course of a year, Cassie must learn about standing up for what’s right and picking your battles whilst she and her family navigate racism in its various forms; from the ‘night riders’ that terrorise her community, to the everyday prejudice that permeates life in 1930s Mississippi. ‘Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry’ is a powerful story of family, self-respect and strength, set against the turbulent backdrop of the Jim Crow South.
