Storyboard Description

IIt's about slavery

Storyboard Text

  • Jerome and Lettie begin their day waking up in a shabby and cramped cabin. They will soon begin their labor.
  • They start their day by quickly attending to chores, making nails, and other smaller jobs.
  • Hippity hoppity, women are property.
  • But of course.
  • The majority of the slaves proceed to pick cotton, the primary source of income for the plantation and therefore the main task. Nathaniel acts as an overseer and slave driver.
  • This has been a long time coming, William.
  • Meanwhile, their relative Sally works as a part of the elite house staff.
  • I mean I guess this is a little better.
  • Within the house, the plantation owner's wife is subservient to him, doing as he asks and appearing on his arm at social events.
  • Slaves revolt against their cruel treatment from time to time, sometimes gaining freedom, but often just more sorrow.
