Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry is a TV movie edited from the miniseries of the same name. Set in 1933 Mississippi, the story focuses on the Logans, a closely knit, fiercely independent African-American family. The Logans spearhead a boycott against a bigoted merchant who clandestinely heads a Klanlike organization. Mary Logan is fired from her teaching job for detailing the history of slavery to her students. The conclusion 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.
