Summary:
This book is a companion to Mildred D. Taylor's Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry. It is a frightening and turbulent time for the Logan family. First, their friend T.J. must go on trial for murder -- and confront an all-white jury. Then, Cousin Suzella tries to pass for white, with humiliating consequences. And when Cassie's neighbor, Mrs. Lee Annie, stands up for her right to vote, she and her family are driven from their home. Other neighbors are destroyed and shattered by the greed of landowners. But through it all, Cassie and the Logans stand together and stand proud -- proving that courage, love, and understanding can defy even the deepest prejudice. - Publisher.
Four black children growing up in rural Mississippi during the Depression experience racial antagonisms and hard times, but learn from their parents the pride and self-respect they need to survive.
