Storyboard Text

  • "Each person had their own nigger to wait on them-Buck too," (109).
  • "Each person had their own nigger to wait on them-Buck too," (109).
  • "Each person had their nigger to wait on them-Buck too," (109).
  • This is realistic because in the era during which this novel was written it was common for people with large house and plots of land to have hundreds of slaves to work for them. Twain was not being racist or unfair to negroes but simply being realistic for the time period.
  • In this scene Mark Twain was depicting the family having many slaves, enough for each person to have their own and for the others to farm their large amount of land.
  • In this scene we interpreted that there were many slaves working in the house and serving the family. We imagined the slaves being able to help the family with anything they may need rather than asked to.
  • This is a realistic interpretation of the scene because it was common for slaves to be seen more as servants and less as people, catering to a family's every need no matter what it is.
  • This is a realistic depiction of slavery because many slave masters mistreated their slaves especially when they have an abundant amount of them. A critical race theorist could have viewed any situation involving slavery as oppressive no matter how kind the slave owner is.
  • We believe that a strong critical race theorist would have viewed the scene as the slaves being seen as objects to be used by the wealthy and powerful family rather than people serving them.
