I read it and I loved it. After the civil war was over. Slavery never really ended. Blacks we're still harassed(to create a hostile situation for someone) and were treated badly. From being pushed off the road to having kerosene poured in them. Roll of Thunder Hear My Cry tells us that the government isn't perfect (which I seen at the end), people are put in prison even if they were innocent. Roll of Thunder Hear My Cry also tells us that people are still being judged by their race and by their color( which is kinda the same thing.) This book goes to show that people need help. It also warns us not to be like others. When we see it in like movies it's not the same as reading about the life's of those who were treated horribly. Though these people weren't real they show us how hard it was for those who were treated horribly. But we know now how bad it was and how those people felt. We need to listen, remember and repeat what we think about being mean or rude to African Americans.
