Storyboard Text

  • "Edward Brodas was known as the Master to his Negro Slaves. His house, which the slaves called the Big House, stood near a country road. The kitchen was a small detached building in the rear, known as the cookhouse."
  • "So James Cook sent Minty out to inspect his trap lines." "She was so sick that Old Rit heard about it, and went to Edward Brodas and asked him to take Minty away from Cook's, to let her come home where Rit could look after her. The master consented."
  • "Harriet moved in front of the doorway, stood there, blocking it. The overseer, startled by this sudden obstructing body, planted squarely in the doorway, turned away from the door, picked up a two-pound weight from the counter, and hurled it at the fleeing slave." "It struck Harriet in the forehead." "She was brought back to the quarter, unconscious, bleeding."
  • "In 1843, Harriet Ross began to make a patchwork quilt." "The needle kept slipping through her fingers. Time and again she hunted for the needle on the dirt floor of the cabin." "For this was no ordinary quilt. It would be trousseau, and the entire contents of what under different circumstances would have been a hope chest. Harriet had fallen in love. She was going to marry a young man named John Tubman."
  • "He was free. Yet he wanted to marry her and she was a slave. They were married in 1844. Harriet went to live in his cabin, taking with her her one beautiful possession, the patchwork quilt." 
  • "Harriet learned that the Underground Railroad that ran straight to the North was not a railroad at all. Neither did it run underground. It was composed of a loosely organized group of people who offered food and shelter, or a place of concealment, to fugitives who had set out on the long road to the North and freedom."  Harriet helped rescue so many slaves through the Underground Railroad, becoming one of the most important people in history.
