Storyboard Text

  • On January 1st, 1833 my master rented me out to a slave breaker named Mr. Covey to work for him for a year. 
  • I lived with Mr. covey for a year. The first six months living there, there was barely a week where i didn't get whipped.  i worked my hardest but he didn't feel like i was so he hit me with the hickory stick. Mr.Covey was the devil.
  • the days were very long and the sun was always staring down on me. I could barely sleep. The nights were very short. Everyday we had to be up before the shadows of darkness faded away. 
  • On one of the hottest days of the month we were working on fanning wheat. While i was working i became sick and my head was aching in pain and my body trembled in every limb. 
  • Mr.Covey was at the house, about a few hundred yards from me. I crawled under a tree to get some shade. Mr.Covey saw me, I was weakening. I told him as well as I could, for scarce had strength to speak.  POW! Mr.Covey gave me a savage kick in the side and told me to get up. I didn't get up so he hit me with the hickory stick.
  • GET UP!!
  • Before i got another beating i was able to out run Mr. Covey and his hickory stick. I ran into the cornfield with my back being a burning flame in  pain, since the cornfield is high it allowed me to hide. Covey gave up on finding me after a while thinking i would go back for something to eat. I ran into the woods after Covey stopped looking for me.  In the woods i ran into a man named Sandy Jenkins.
  • Are you okay?
