Storyboard Text

  • I'm really glad I get to talk to you, being a slave can get lonely sometimes.
  • Let's meet at this spot every night, I'll bring you some of my food and we can talk.
  • I have to be careful, If I get caught I will be tortured.
  • How many slaves are there in Haiti?
  • This whole country is slaves, all the French do is oppress and belittle us. Just because you aren't treated like a slave, doesn't mean you aren't one.
  • I'm so happy to see you, I had to do a lot of work today, at least I don't have to do the work on my. 
  • Where is she?  Does she hate me? What happened to her? Why isn't she here? Oh no. 
  • Did she forget?
  • Did my dad find out?
  • Night after night I would sneak out to meet the young slave girl. Her name was Nadege.  She was split from her family at a very young age, and didn't remember much about them. She taught me a lot about what was happening around me.
  • Nadege, if you can hear me, I want to let you know that I will never forget about you or the time we spent together. I will never give up on you. 
  • Every night during dinner I would save some of my food for Nadege. Seeing Nadege at night became a ritual for me, I didn't have to think about it anymore, I just did it.  I learned so many new things every time I talked to her.
  • Dad, what happened to Nadege? She was my friend, and now she's gone! You need put a stop to this madness!
  • I had been meeting Nadege at this spot every night for the past 2 weeks, this night, I waited and waited, but she never came. I couldn't even imagine what had happened to her. 
  • I will not stand for this anymore. We must show the French what we a made of!
  • I kept going back to our spot for another couple weeks, but she was never there. I never saw Nadege again, and we never got to say our last goodbye. I couldn't believe that my friend was gone.
  • The night that I decided to stop looking, I confronted my father. I told him about all the nights that Nadege and I had spent together. I couldn't keep in the emotion anymore.
  • I can't believe you did all this behind my back. I'm sorry. You need to be more careful.
  • I told my family everything and they finally understood that the French didn't even see us as people. My father took a stand and planned a revolution against the French. My friendship with Nadege was a key factor for my fathers actions.
