This storyboard does not have a description.
My name is Dutty Bookman and Cecile and I are soon having a secret meeting to start a revolution to put an end to slavery in the French colony.
I was born a slave and sold . I was a result from rape. My father was a white man. and my mom was an African slave. Oh, and by the way my name is Cecile Fatima.
Now that we have gathered thousands of slaves we are in the grotto we are all gathered around the fire to hear Dutty's speech
"The god who created the sun which gives us light, who rouses the waves and rules the storm, though hidden in the clouds, he watches us. He sees all the white man does, the god of the white man inspires him with crime, but our god calls upon us to do good works. Our god who is good to us orders us to revenge our wrongs. He will direct our arms and aid us. Throw away the symbol of the god of the whites who has so often caused us to weep, and listen to the voice of liberty, which speaks in the hearts of us all."
The slaves were cheering, singing, clapping and dancing. Petro songs were loudly sung, Vèvès were drawn, drums were beaten with rage. Machetes, daggers in hands, they are calling on the darkest spirits of Mother Africa to come to their rescue.
This also represent the spirit that possessed Cecile Fatima

Mambo Cécile Fatiman suddenly got possessed by Erzulie 7 Kout Kouto, the most dangerous manifestation of Erzulie Dantor. She drinks blood. She is dancing by the rhythm of the drums
The 'pig is stabbed 7 times and all participants soak their fingers in the blood, taking the oath to " Viv lib ou mouri" , " Live free or die."
The slaves that night, took the oath to fight the greatest fight in human history. The fight for liberty and equality.
A black female wild pig is presented to her, in symbol of liberty. Liberty is suppose to be free and untamed, as is the wild pig.
