Stacey Logan shows courage throughout Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry. Although he is best-friends with T.J., he also isn’t afraid to stand up to him. When T.J. tries to cheat on the test Stacey’s mother (their teacher) gives the class, Stacey takes the blame because of his honor. After he is punished, he goes to find T.J. to fight him. When T.J. gets Stacey’s mother in trouble for crossing out the profanity in the textbooks they got from the white school, Stacey stops speaking to him, and the rest of the school follows suit. Stacey goes with his father and Mr. Morrisson to Vicksburg, even though it’s dangerous, not only to help but also to learn. And, at the end of the book, when T.J. is in grave danger from the lynch mob, Stacey stays nearby while his siblings run for Papa.
