THE MISSISSIPPI OF THE 1930S WAS A HARD PLACE FOR A BLACK CHILD TO GROW UP IN, BUT STILL CASSIE DIDN T UNDERSTAND WHY FARMING HIS OWN LAND MEANT SO MUCH TO HER FATHER. DURING THAT YEAR, THOUGH, WHEN THE NIGHT RIDERS WERE CARRYING HATRED AND DESTRUCTION AMONG HER PEOPLE, SHE LEARNED ABOUT THE GREAT DIFFERENCES THAT DIVIDED THEM, AND WHEN IT WAS WORTH FIGHTING FOR A PRINCIPLE EVEN IF IT BROUGHT EVEN WORSE HARDSHIPS.

About the Author

Mildred DeLois Taylor (born September 13, 1943) is an African-American writer known for her works exploring the struggle faced by African-American families in the Deep South. Taylor was born in Jackson, Mississippi but lived there only a short amount of time, then moved to Toledo, Ohio, where she spent most of her childhood. She now lives in Colorado with her daughter. She has expressed her views on the Great Depression as an economical crisis, as well as slavery. Many of her works are based on stories of her family that she heard while growing up. She has stated that these anecdotes became very clear in her mind, and in fact, once she realized that adults talked about the past, "I began to visualize all the family who had once known the land, and I felt as if I knew them, too ..." Taylor has talked about how much history was in the stories; some stories took place during times of slavery and some post-slavery.
