Storyboard Text

  • Traitor
  • I never told you but our life is war and I have been a traitor all my days a spy in the enemy's country...
  • Live in the lions mouth...
  • Live with your head in the lions mouth .I want you to overcome'em with yeses, undermine 'em with grins, agree 'em to death ..
  • School Graduation
  • This part is a critical part of the story because it shows that the grandfather had been a traitor. By this he means ,that he told African Americans about the whites planned riots.He loved his family and knew that they couldn't succeed in this white world.
  • Elevator
  • He is telling his family that they will never achieve anything that the whites wont allow so he wants them to kill them with kindness.This is a important part because this words shock the family and these words set the path for the rest of the story.
  • The Naked women
  • This is his graduation at his school.Throughout his graduation he feels equal and is proud and very humble.This is where he is invited to give his speech at the a gathering of the towns leading white citizens.This scene is showing his thoughts of triumph and success.This scene draws the other scenes together by showing hints and equality before showing the storys true purpose.
  • The Blindfolds
  • This is right before the fighters enter the ballroom and get ready for the fight.He is nervous about the fight but strangely more nervous about giving his speech.He still believes that the white citizens respect him even though they are putting him through this to humiliate him.He also believes he is better than the other fighters even while the white are degrading him.This scene shows how truly blind he is toward racism and prejudices.
  • This scene shows how women were treated at this time as eye candy .They werent really respected at all.It is also a reason to get these black men in trouble if the ever told they were here or what happened.Black men at this time during Jim Crow Laws would get hanged for looking at a white women.It was also humorous for the white men to watch the black fighters reactions.
  • Before the fight began the men are blindfold.This represents how African Americans had to live during the Jim Crow Laws.They couldn't do anything without punishment like look at a white women or walk down the same sidewalk as a white women.Both of these acts could get them hanged.Even when it was about to began he was worried about his speech as though it was important to the white spectators.
