    Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry | Mildred D. Taylor

    Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 32 mins)
    • By Mildred D. Taylor
    • Narrated By Lynne Thigpen, Jacqueline Woodson
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    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 burnings, 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, for no matter how others may degrade them, the Logans possess something no one can take away.

    Good story

    This is a great story about a black family's struggle in the 1930's in the Southern USA. I used the narrative (with the paperback books) in my middle..Show More »

    Mississippi Bridge | Mildred D. Taylor

    Mississippi Bridge

    • UNABRIDGED (53 mins)
    • By Mildred D. Taylor
    • Narrated By Danny Gerard

    Jeremy Simms watches from the porch of the general store as the passengers board the weekly bus from Jackson. When several white passengers arrive late, the driver roughly orders the black passengers off to make room. Then, in the driving rain, disaster strikes, and Jeremy witnesses a shocking end to the day's drama. Set in Mississippi in the 1930s, this is a gripping story of racial injustice.

    Ever since running away at the age of fourteen, Paul-Edward, the son of a white landowner and a black slave, has had one dream: to own land every bit as good as his daddy's. While growing up, Paul-Edward loved, and feared, his father, but he loved the land unconditionally. Then, after a rash act of youthful rebellion, he leaves his family behind and vows to succeed on his own. However, for anyone black coming of age in 1880's Mississippi, this is no simple goal.
