Storyboard Text

  • Fredrick Douglass was born on February 14, 1818. He was born a slave but he was a rebel he was known to not do what he was told to do. He really did not want to be a slave and he really wanted to be free. So, he got sold to a ruthless slave breaker named Covey, but Covey could not break him.
  • During Douglass's time at the farm, Covey outworks Douglass so he gets exhausted and collapses at the wheat fan. Covey comes over with his whip, rapidly and aggressively he whips Frederick until he cannot bear the pain anymore. He hit Douglass as if he was Scar.
  • "OUCH!"
  • Later that night, the wind screamed as it blew and  Fredrick sprints away into the woods and encounters a free slave named Sandy. Sandy generously invites Fredrick in his cabin and that's where Fredrick gets a pendant which will protect him from getting whipped. Sandy was a complete contrast to Covey as Sandy was generous and Covey was very agressive.
  • Douglass returns to the farm and his heart is beating 100 miles an hour because he had no idea what was going to happen. Later he finds out that Covey wants to see him and talk to him in the barn. Douglass is confused and follows Covey into the barn.
  • Covey gets upset and has a whip in his hand. He tries to hit Douglass but he dodges it and retaliates against Covey. When this happens Covey falls on the ground and hurts himself. 
  • Douglass wrestles Covey and wins. When Covey falls to ground the earth shakes. Douglass earns respect as if he were the king of the jungle. From then on, Covey then does not aggressively whip or beat Douglass from then on.
