Storyboard Text

  • "At five I learned that there was to be no space for me on that merry-go-round no matter how many saddles stood empty"(Pattillo 4)
  • "Mother didn't talk back to the nurse. She knew Daddy's job was at stake"(Pattillo 3)
  • "Mrs.Huckaby wore a pleasant smile as she explained to Minnijean that the day to register for tryouts had long since passed, and they could't violate the rules for her"(Pattilo 134)
  • Tryouts happened long ago
  • Melba tries to go on the merry-go-round but the concessionaire says there is no space for her even though there were saddles, so Melba pointed at the saddles then the man got angry and shouted at her because she tried to go on the ride but she was black.
  • Melba moms tries to tell the nurse why she used Epsom salts and warm water but she growled back "We don't coddle N*****" Melba mom didn't reply because she knew that dad's job will be at stake.
  • Mrs.Huckaby had lied to Minnijean and told her that tryouts had already happen but she had been tricked because they didn't want a black student in choir.
