Storyboard Text

  • Curious and lured by gold, Milkman went to Pennsylvania and found the house of the people who killed his grandfather. He was given more information by Circe.
  • "'Did you ever know his real name?'" (248)
  • “Both of them lived in Virginia, her people and his. Down around Culpepper somewhere. Charlemagne or something like that.” (244)
  • "'Sing. Her name was Sing.'" (243)
  • "'Jake, I believe.'" (248)
  • He found himself coon-hunting in Shalimar, Virgina and came to some self-awareness and realization, also narrowing escaping death by the hands of Guitar.
  • “Now it seemed to him that that he was always saying or thinking that he didn’t deserve some bad luck, or some bad treatment.” (276)
  • With a tip from one of his hunting comrades, Milkman found his way to Susan Byrd's house, where he found out more about his family.
  • "This Jake was a baby [my grandmother] found, and he and Sing grew up together, and I guess . . . she ran away with him."
  • "'He flew. You know, like a bird. Just stood up in the fields one day, ran up some hill, spun around a couple of times, and was lifted up in the air. Went right on back to wherever it was he came from.'" (323)
  • "'He disappeared and left everybody. Wife, everybody, including some twenty one children. And they all saw him go . . . The baby and the wife were right next to him when he flew off.'" (322)
  • Milkman returned home to Michigan to tell his family the new information he found.
  • "'Papa?'" (333)
  • “‘Pilate, your father’s body floated up out of the grave you all dug for him . . . That was your father you found. You’ve been carrying your father’s bones—all this time’” (333)
  • "'Yes. And, Pilate, you have to bury him. He wants you to bury him. Back where he belongs. On Solomon's Leap.'" (333)
  • So Pilate and Milkman went back to Shalimar to bury Jake at Solomon's Leap, but unfortunately Guitar was waiting for them.
  • “For now he knew what Shalimar knew: If you surrendered to the air, you could ride it.” (337)
