Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry (1978)





















Starring:
  • Claudia McNeil
  • Janet MacLachlan
  • Robert Christian
  • Morgan Freeman
Storyline
With the land to hold them together, nothing can tear the Logans apart. Why is the land so important to Cassie's family? It takes the events of one turbulent year- the year of the night riders and the burning, the year a white girl humiliates Cassie in public simply because she is black- to show Cassie that having a place of their own is the Logan family's lifeblood. It is the land that gives the Logans their courage and pride- no matter how others may degrade them, the Logans process something no one can take away.
