Storyboard Description

In Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry, there is a scene at school where the children finally get books. Little Man doesn't want his book because he notices it says nigra and is old and in poor condition so Mrs. Crocker whips him. Cassie saw why and tried to show her teacher, but she didn't listen. This is important because Cassie and Little Man see that they aren't treated as good as whites and they begin to realize that other people don't care that they stick up for themselves.
