Gayle’s Gable

Land. Character. Self-respect. These are things no one can take away. In Mildred Taylor’s Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry, Cassie Logan watches her parents model these truths and struggles to understand them in the racially biased South of the 1930’s. Cassie learns to have the courage to stand against injustice and sees the personal sacrifice her family makes to bring peace to racial conflict. Grace and mercy temper this story and show how right can triumph in the face of hate and prejudice. This novel won the 1977 Newbury Medal.
