Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry was a TV pilot film in the form of a three-part miniseries. Set in 1933 Mississippi, the story focuses on the Logans, a closely knit, fiercely independent African-American family. In Part One, the Logans spearhead a boycott against a bigoted merchant who clandestinely heads a Klanlike organization. In part two, Mary Logan is fired from her teaching job for detailing the history of slavery to her students. The concluding chapter finds the Logans faced with foreclosure, while their oldest son's friend is framed on a robbery-murder rap. The impressive cast list includes Janet MacLachlan, Robert Christian, Claudia McNeil, Morgan Freeman and Rockne Tarkington. Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry was first telecast (with surprisingly little advertising fanfare) on June 2, 3 and 4, 1978. LESS
READ THIS FIRST A Literature assignment given to us by our school, we were supposed to create a trailer on a book "Roll of Thunder Hear My Cry.", which is a book on racial prejudice and abuse. Obviously, the trailer does not follow the book to the letter, it includes some of our own intepretations on racism and discrimination. If this video offends you in anyway, please let me know and I'll remove it with full apologies. This is not meant as a racial insult, but fully for academic purposes. However, as this pertains to a book on racism, obviously this video might contain some suggestive and controversial content. If it does to you, WE DO NOT MEAN IT. We are not racists and we do not intend anything like it. If you feel that it does, though, post a comment below or PM me, and the video will be gone faster than you can say "shaker fries". (Or as fast as I read my Youtube Inbox.)
