Hi, I am doing a independent novel study on "Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry" By Mildred D. Taylor. But I am not sure how the title has anything to do with the book because i can't seem to make a connection between the two. Could you help me?

  1. Thunder usually refers to storm.

    Cry often refers to a cry for freedom or other relief from bad circumstances.
