What does pearl handed pistol, the land, fig tree, and thunder represent in roll of thunder hear my cry

1) The land is a symbol of independence.
2) The peal handed pistol represents T.J's American Dream, but most of all it symbolizes power.
"That pearl handled one. Stacey, man you ever seen a gun like that? I'd sell my life for that gun for my life."
3) The fig tree represents blacks fighting or competing against whites.
"You see that fig tree over yonder".... "Them other trees around it, that oak and walnut they're a lot bigger and they take up more room and give so much shade almost shadow over that ole fig tree. But that fig tree got roots that run deep and it belongs in that yard as much as the oak and walnut"
