Storyboard Text

  • In the exposition, Sammy Davis Jr. is drafted into the army. He discovers that the majority of the soldiers in his barracks and entire army camp are white. They are very racist and hateful towards him. He tries to just move along and tolerate it.
  • Exposition
  • I don't want a n***** in our cabin!
  • Next, in the rising action, Sammy has survived a day of racism and hate. He finds that he is not alone in the camp. His sergeant is very kind and even starts to teach Sammy how to read and write. He still suffers more harassment and finds out that his bully is named Jennings.
  • Rising Action
  • After that, in the climax, Sammy is assigned to the entertainment corps after showing talent in performing. He starts performing well and even befriends some white soldiers and his white, female captain. Jennings is angry and tricks Sammy to come to the latrines. Jennings and his gang beat up Sammy, spray paint racist words, and make him dance for his life.
  • Climax
  • N*****!
  • Dance for us!
  • Then, in the falling action, Sammy is still recovering from his life-threatening attack from Jennings and his gang. Sergeant Williams offers to help and to send him to the infirmary but Sammy refuses the offer. Sammy is then discharged from the army. From there, he develops his performing career and becomes wildly successful.
  • Falling Action
  • Finally, in the resolution, his success and fame bring him the time and recovery he needed after his experience of being in the army. He is invited to perform at the White House and there is a surprise. When his limo reaches the front gate, one of the guards at the gate is Jennings and Sammy asks if he knows him. Jennings says, "No sir, Mr. Davis." but Sammy knows that this isn't true and that he has won the fight.
  • Resolution
  • No sir, Mr. Davis
  • Do I know you?
  • To assign the theme to this very interesting story, it seems to be that it is the people you never imagine of that does the things that no one can imagine. This very specific time frame in Sammy Davis Jr.'s life proves this rather well since he suffered lots of racism and hate. He has also had to survive terrible ordeals and struggles. Like a diamond, all the harassment and bullying pressurized him from a lump of coal to the biggest diamond.
