Storyboard Text

  • Hi there, my name is Starr Carter, the main character in The Hate You Give. Welcome to my hometown of Garden Heights. 
  • Ever since I was little I've constantly been switching the worlds I live in to fit in. 
  • This is the small general store my Papa has owned ever since he's been released for prison
  • These are the people that support me the most throughout the rough times I end up facing after the innocent death of my childhood best friend.  
  • This is my family, the people I live with and the people that care most about me...
  • My Momma, Daddy, and my brothers Seven and Sekani
  • Everynight I fall asleep to the ring of gunshots and machine guns in the distance. And there are often daily shootings and robberies. 
  • When you live in a part of the city, where most folks reffer to as the "ghetto" a lot of things go down, such as the selling of drugs. 
  • I attended a party in Garden Heights over break and ended catching up with Kahlil, my childhood bestfriend. 
  • On our way home, police officer 115 pulled us over and told us to put our hands in the air. Kahlil put his hands down to try and comfort me, and the officer shot him. 
  • We were always really close since our moms went to school together and his grandma would babysit me everyday when I was younger. 
  • My closest friends are Maya and Hailey, Luke, and my boyfriend Chris 
  • Because my parents see the value in a good education, I go to a fancy, mostly white prepatory school, more than 45 min away, where I have to change who I truly am to fit in. 
  • I stand out at my school, since I'm the one of two African American students, and from Garden heights
  • When things get too violent in my neighborhood, I often spend the night at my Uncle Carlo's house. 
  • My Uncle hides DeVante, a 16 year old from the drug lords in his house, because he knows that if he doesn't help him, he'll die
  • My Uncle was like a second dad for me when my Daddy was in jail.
