Lois and Wilma are proud of their father's brand-new gold Cadillac. And they're excited that the family will be driving it all the way from Ohio to Mississippi. But as they travel deeper into the rural South, there are no admiring glances for their shiny new car; only suspicion and anger for the black man behind the wheel. For the first time in their lives, Lois and her sister know what it's like to feel scared because of the color of their skin.

This powerful addition to Mildred D. Taylor's Logan Family Saga, which includes Newbery Award-winning Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry offers a moving portrait of institutional racism seen through the fresh but discerning eyes of a child.
