Storyboard Text

  • Hi, my name is Kayla. Today I am going to be talking about Black Sunday. If you don't know what Black Sunday is, it is a terrible event that happened on April 1935.
  • Nine year old, Catherine Hattrup suffered in Black Sunday with her family. She thought the world was ending. Catherine was a tomboy who did girl chores.
  • Before people started ripping and cutting the prairie grass, everything was calm. People started to get rid of prairie grass so they can grow crops. That was a terrible mistake. The dust storms killed animals and people were rushed to the hospital with a condition called dust pneumonia.
  • More than 80 years later, Catherine hattrup still remembers the horror of Black Sunday. There were many hardships during the dusty days of her childhood. But days like Black Sunday taught her a lesson. She learned that even when things don't turn out right. She should be thankful for everything
  • They did have terrible dust storms, But none of the dust storms were worst than Black Sunday. The skies were all black. For hundreds of miles around, people saw the same horrifying sight: a mountain of boiling blackness churning through the sky.
  • But then, people realized that it was up to them to fix it. So people grew millions of trees and prairie grass.
