Storyboard Text

  • The Help
  • Hello, the name's Aibileen, and I'm the central non-white character of, "The Help." I'm a maid, nani, and cook.
  • The loss of a child and husband
  • I once had a child named, Treelore. He died from an accident, and my husband left me.
  • Frightened to speak thy truth
  • I, a black servant, has a hard as hell time not to speak out for myself and others of my fellow kind.
  • "Taking care of white babies, that's what I do, along with all the cooking and cleaning" (1).
  • A racist bathroom
  • I'm not gonna resists, I must do this for my own personal safety.
  • "He was 24 years old. The best part of a person's life. It just wasn't enough time living in this world" (2).
  • A everlasting concern
  • "My face goes hot, my tongue twitchy. I don't know what to say to her. All I know is, I ain't saying it" (35).
  • A tortured soul trapped inside
  • I'm sick of being treated like I'm an inferior race of human. I deserve much better than this since I'm the one doing all the hard work around here. 
  • "Don't you want to get some tissue and go on out there and use it?" (34).
  • "I feel the bitter seed growing inside-a-me, the one planted after Treelore died. I want to yell so loud that Baby Girl can hear me that dirty ain't a color, disease ain't the Negro side-a-town. I want to stop that moment from coming-and it come in ever white child's life-when they start to think that colored folks ain't as good as whites" (112). 
  • I don't want Baby Girl, Mae Mobley to be one of the racist kind towards the Negro side of town.
  • "Shhh, please. Do you know what would happen to me if Miss Leefolt find out I talked behind her back?" (120).
