This storyboard does not have a description.
I am Dred Scott, a slave in Missouri and I am forced to pick cotton all day and I am whipped.
Me and my master then moved to Illinois where slavery is illegal but I was still forced to be a slave.
My master suddenly died and I decided to sue for my rights as an American citizen to not be a slave anymore.
In court I argued that I had rights as an American to not be a slave anymore and be free in Illinois.
The Supreme Court then decided that since I was purchased in Missouri, a slave state, I would always remain a slave and so I was not an American citizen and I could not sue for my non-existent rights.
Since the Supreme Court decided this, they also indirectly legalized slavery and made it legit for the South. This is because it was never said outright before that slavery was legal and now it suddenly was.
