Storyboard Text

  • First person:little girl. Establishing shot of road.
  • On an otherwise unremarkable September morning, long before I learned to be ashamed of my mother, she takes my hand and we set off down New Jersey Avenue to begin my very first day of school.
  • I want her to go here. If I'da wanted her someplace else, I'da took her there
  • 3rd person omniscient. Long shot.
  • You are at the wrong school. You should be at Walker-Jones.
  • walker-Jones is a larger, new school and I immediately like it for that. But it is not across the street from my mother's church, her rock, one of her connections to god, and I sense her doubts as she absently rubs her thumb over the back of her hand.
  • 1st person: little girl. medium shot.
  • I can't read it. I don't know how to read or write, and I'm askin' you to help me. Would you mind helping me, than?
  • 3rd person omniscient. Close up.
  • Indeed,she takes out more papers than I have ever seen her do in other places: my birth certificate, my baptismal record,a doctor's letter concerning my bout with the chicken pox, rent receipts, records of immunization, a letter about our public assistance payments, even her marriage licence- every single paper that has anything even remotely to do with my five-year-old life.
  • 1st person: little girl. Pov shot
  • 3rd person omniscient. Extreme close up.
  • I'll be back to pick you up at twelve o'clock. I don't want you to go nowhere. you just wait right here. And listen to every word she say.
