Storyboard Text

  • I planned my escape. I planned to escape a week later. But that week that we waited was as painful and traumatising as any other.
  • Before our escape I wrote a protection for each of us. As the protection read :
  • This is to certify that I, the undersigned have given the bearer, my servant, full liberty to go to Baltimore, and spend the Easter holidays. Written with my own hand. 1835
  • After that week was finally over, we were suppose to leave Saturday morning. But that Friday night was something else. That night I got no sleep.
  • And in the morning after that night I found out that someone went to the master and snitched . The master, Covey then interrogated me. Asking me questions about the escape.
  • My fellow associates Henry and John had to get their hands tied. John was the cooperative one. But Henry on the other hand didnt have the same state of mind. He was getting tired of the whole slavery thing, and just snapped.
