From the Publisher:
Amid the Depression, the Logan family struggles to protect their Mississippi farm and begins to feel the pressures of racial unrest when a friend is unjustly convicted of a crime by a white jury.
Set in 1935 in the midst of the Great Depression, this is the story of the Logan family. The children--Cassie, Stacey, Christopher-John, and Little Man--are beginning to experience life beyond the safe and loving circle of their family. As African Americans, all the Logans must deal with racism and watch, almost powerless, as their friend T.J. is charged with murder and tried by an all-white jury. Have Big Ma, Mama, and Papa Logan taught their children the pride and self respect they need to survive?
Author Bio
Mildred D. Taylor
Mildred Taylor is best known for her historical fiction featuring African-American families. Although Taylor was born in Mississippi, she and her family moved to Ohio as her father did not want to raise his family in the segregated South. It was during her Ohio school years that Taylor first discovered the need for historical stories about African Americans. She felt that what she and other students learned from textbooks did not accurately portray the lives and history of African Americans. Taylor attended the University of Toledo, after which she joined the Peace Corps to teach English and history in Ethiopia. Upon returning to the U.S., she entered the School of Journalism at the University of Colorado. During this time, as a member of the Black Student Alliance, she helped the university develop a black studies program. Her first book, SONG OF THE TREES, was published in 1975 after it was entered in a contest sponsored by the Council on Interracial Books for Children. Taylor's second book, ROLL OF THUNDER, HEAR MY CRY won the 1977 Newbery Medal. In 1982. LET THE CIRCLE BE UNBROKEN received the Coretta Scott King Award.
