Storyboard Text

  • I don't fit in here.. I hate Naxos!
  • NAXOS
  • I don't like Helga. She's such an outcast.
  • I agree. Her financé is so much better.
  • I hate Harlem! I don't belong with these black people. I am not one of them...
  • I BELIEVE IN EQUAL RIGHTS FOR BLACKS! WHITE PEOPLE ARE NOT TO BE TRUSTED! - Anne
  • EQUAL RIGHTS FOR BLACKS!
  • I don't think I've ever seen one before!
  • These white people keep looking at me like I'm some kind of exhibit... I don't like it
  • Look at her! She's a black person!
  • You don't want to be my wife?
  • I could never marry a white man.
  • Faith is just an illusion! This is what ails the negro race! I hate this life!
  • THEME: Racial Identity Throughout these scenes, Helga never feels like she truly belongs anywhere, because of her inability to feel as though she belongs to a specific race. She is half black and half white and can identify with neither the black community of Harlem seeking equal rights, or the whites in Copenhagen that see her as an exotic decoration and not a real person. Therefore, unable to belong in her own skin, she feels as though she cannot belong in any of the places she goes to.
