slavery story board Equiano

Storyboard Text

  • Let's break in and steal all we can!
  • Olaudah Equiano lived witha wealthy family
  • One day Olaudah was left alone with his sister at home, and some people broke in and took them as slaves.
  • He lived as a slave for a wealthy widow until he was taken to a ship heading to America.. "I was immediately handled and tossed up to see if I were sound by some of the crew; and I was now persuaded that I had gotten into a world of bad spirits, and that they were going to kill me."
  • "I now wished for the last friend, death, to relieve me; but soon, to my grief, two of the white men offered me [food]; and, on my refusing to eat, one of them held me fast by the hands… while the other flogged me severely.”
  • His ship arrived at America,but one one bought him, so he was transported to a plantation in Virginia,with a British Lieutenant.Their complexions too differing so much from ours, their long hair, and the language they spoke, (which was very different from any I had ever heard) united to confirm me in this belief.
