Mildred D. Taylor’s Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry’ is bildungsroman novel. It interest in the education, development, and maturing of its young protagonist Casey. In this novel, the main character goes through her coming of age experience in the harsh environment. The elders of Logan family teach their children to take on the role of agents of change. The biggest factor in a child's learning based on his reliance to himself. This novel supports the child agency, on contrast to the classic fiction which concerned with the didactic trajectory. The novel explains strong family ties and love as a main source of support for the child protagonists. It highlights important cross-generational relationships. Its feisty characters struggle against social injustice. The novel talks about Logans and their neighbours who faced the injustices of the white, racist, and lawless society that is the main theme and it was strong factor that make the children agents of change. This essay will explain several points. It will show how the children became agents of change of many factors in the novel. It will also explain how Logan children were educated in formal and informal way from their family, school and experiences. Lastly, it will explain the bildungsroman genre in the novel.




The novel Roll of Thunder Hear my Cry is focalized by the Logan's family granddaughter Casey, 9 year old African American girl. The novel depicts the life of a black family and their black neighbours who faced the injustice from the white people during the Depression period in Mississippi when the racism was prevalent at that time. The novel's racial specificity in this novel contrasts with classic works of children's literature. It highlights a child's need for agency which enable them to resistance the oppressed cultures. A didactic trajectory works as a main function in the classic works of children's fiction. It works to install the good values of childhood which constructed by adults. The novel Roll of Thunder Hear my Cry takes the stereotype of didacticism in modern children fiction. It shows how child get greater freedom and agency to become agent of change. On the other hand, it doesn't devoid the didacticism style because it is a children novel.




The novel reveals several strong factors which make the child agent for change. First one is the bad environment of the Depression and racism which make them ******ers for proper solutions as contributing for decent life. Terror and fear weather which was created by racism make the children alert and need to change their current situation. Second one is the influence of the parents who encourage them to learn and behave intelligently in order to resist racism and maintain their survival. Third factor is the formal and informal education which gives them the hope and provides them with a good understanding for their life and make them longing to bright future. Fourth one is the unjust law which generates the ambitious of recovering their rights and the oppressed families' rights in their selves. Fifth factor is the adult experiences which give them the motivation for continuing improve themselves when they see the results of adult behaviours. The last one is the unequal good deal that white children received who were on their age on contrast with them and which pushed them to clings with their dreams and aspirations and to think into the ways that lead them to live into parallel way with them.
There are several positions in the novel supports the child agency and shows its importance as it was noticed at the last of the novel, how children became accept many things which were difficult for them. The adults of the Logan's family worked hard to improve their children and make them more conscious with their lives reality. They taught them how they can rely on themselves and behave more intelligently in their life outside their home. They worked to instill their correct history into their children. Their linking with the history has great impact on their life. The history made the children feel with the pride and gave them the biggest hope to change their current situation. It allows them greater freedom and agency. Specific events which directly related to factors of race and class can represent Logan children's history. Casey can remember exact dates and details during the novel and that shows a strong relationship with her family history. She narrates the story of the Logan frame Land in chapter1;''once our land had been Granger land ….)"p4,5. This deep knowledge for Casey is very extensive and unusual for her age. The story of Casey grandfather strength and self-reliance although of his birth into slavery that she heard from Big Ma gives her a sense of pride and makes her aware with the origins of the unfair dealing that she experience in her own lives and her brothers. Her mother Mary Logan also shared in the effort to demystify history for her children, although her concern to protect them. She taught the history of slavery in her classroom. She interest in the brutal reality of history, the subversive act which eventually costs her her job. Mary felt that her kids will be more empowered during their knowledge of the history and they will act in intelligent way with the white people who surround them.





The position which highlights the Logan children learning from their mother in wisely and intelligently way appeared when she took them to see how the 'night men burned Mr. Berry nearly to death. She wanted them to understand possible repercussions of the racism. The children in this way can accommodate exactly "what power is capable of, who wields it, and who is victimized by it". As reaction to this crime, Mary organized a boycott of the Wallace's shop. Then, she asked the neighbours to support this boycott. Through this action, her children watched their mother as a political organizer. Mary taught her children that they also can be active agents. She also asserts the Importance of warning and she displays for them how agency is possible. "Mary's boycott is a subversive act, much like when she covered the issuance charts on the inside of the textbooks of her students. p.26".




The child becomes agent of change in larger way when the adult allows him to act according to what he sees fit. There are several positions in this novel shows the elders' permitting for children to act according to their own decisions. An example of this when Uncle Hammer Papa's brother, allowed to Stacey who is the oldest of the Logan children, to give his new coat to T.J who is one of the averies that they are sharecroppers on Granger land. Mr. Hammer did not ask Stacey to get his jacket back from TJ in spite of the mistake decision from Stacey. But he let him Realized outcome of his decision and feels with its consequence. He does reprimand, but he wanted to make him aware of his own part in his fate. Through the scene, Hammer asserts the necessity of making intelligent judgments. Here Hammer explains to Stacey the whole position when he asks him to tell T.J that it now belongs to T.J. He now shows Stacey the effect of his decisions. Hammer's act explains that he makes Stacey aware with his agency in his own future. It also appears clearly when Logan children went to the store that their mother prevented them to go for it. Then they knew the consequences of their actions without the intervention of the adult' advices.




The formal and informal education that the children received from their family and their school is very important factors which make them agents of change in their society. The unjust law on the other hand makes them more ambitious to change their current situations and to recover their rights. For example Casey who grew with awareness of justice and law, aspire to become a law student. He is a white man but he can advocates for the Logan family rights. It's noticed the importance of the good model that encourages the child agency.





During the experience and pain in Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry, the novel appeared as coming of age novel for Casey and Stacey. The novel depicts Casey understanding for the racism in the South during her tenth year. The importance of family, love and self-respect is what Casey learned at the same time in the novel. The personal humiliation that she received during an incident in Strawberry make her realizes that the life is not fair. Casey felt with the pain when she saw TJ's destruction and from this situation, she learned that even the youngest black person's smallest crimes can led to irrevocable punishment. She learned that nothing is truly secure from parents' worries about losing the land. Stacey also learned from similar experiences like Casey. "But for both, these realizations are significant only in that they spark newly mature reactions of responsibility, love, and caring". TJ act as if he is a man and he wanted to treat as a man despite of his being boy and therefore be unfairly meted the punishment of a man.
The novel involved aspects of the literary genre Bildungsroman. It explained Casey development to the maturity. The novel is a bildungsroman for Casey, because it tells her growing education and consciousness of the liberating power of just laws. it showed their development during specific period, in rural Mississippi during the years 1933-41. Casey realizes that she must not react with anger to protect herself and her family. The journey is initiated by a loss or disappointment that pays the heroine to leave her safety childhood. It also talked about Casey conflict between what she wants and the harsh judgment of society. At the end of the novel she recognized and accepted her position in society





In my opinion, this type of education which teaches the child to be affective agent of change is very effectively one. The child can gain self-confidence. He or she also will learn from his own experiences. The child who learns from his experiences will become more aware than the child who receives Instructions of the adults all time. He also will convince with adult ideas. When Mary took her children to Mr. Berry, she dealt with them as adults. In this way, they gained more respect of themselves. When the child hears heroism pride stories about his grandfather, he will try to become like him. The adults of Logan family dealt with their children intimately which make the children obedient and they will look to their future in an optimistic outlook. Their Cruel experiments and their seeing for the fair life of the children in the age push them to thinking in change.




In conclusion, the child learns from its environment with the affects of many factors in directly or indirectly way. He starts his first learning from his family. The house in which he lives becomes his first school as when he imitates his family members who are older than him. Then, the child moves to learn formally in the school In addition to his learning of his family and friends. He also becomes aware of the circumstances of his life. The difficulties which faced the child make him more aware of many problems around him. Logan children faced the harsh life that led them to try to change their situation. Unjust society versus the love of parents supports their hope of change the bad condition in peaceful manner not hostile. The elders of their family tied the kids with their history. The history enables them to understand the current reality of racism and harsh dealing which they face from whites. The kids learned in a way of child agency. Their mother took them to see Perry who was burned by white people to take caution. Then she made Province in order to prove for them that she is not satisfied with what is happening around them. The children themselves also gained self-confidence when they acted as responsible ones. They took adult tasks. This essay discussed how the child becomes agent of change with reference to D. Taylor's Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry.
