Storyboard Text

  • "Nah Helen, you ain't standin' like her...."
  • "Powhitetrash" girls mock Momma
  • "HA HA HA! Look at Old Lady Henderson!"
  • "How long can Momma hold out? What new indignity will this bring her while she is out there?"
  • Maya watches from the window - upset
  • "What would I be able to do?" "How can I help her?"
  • Why do you seem so happy after what those  "powhitetrash" did to you?
  • Maya looks at Momma with low eyes
  • "Glory, glory hallelujah, when I lay my burden down."
  • Hey brother, why is mom happy from those powhitetrash?
  • The "groop" of "powhitetrash" where hading to grandmothers' store. Grandmother sees them coming and Maya looks to her for direction; she tells her to go inside.  The girls mock Maya's grandmother and one crudely exposes herself.
  • Why does momma feel this way?
  • I don't know why momma is acting like this.
  • Maya watches out the window; she contemplates and thinks on grabbing the shotgun that is behind the door. This made her cry at the disrespect, and then became angry of it.  She does not understand how her grandmother could stand there singing a hymn, not defending herself.  
  • Thinking of why momma is this way.
  • Maybe because she shows more maturity than others.
  • I picked this because the way the white people had mocked and treated her bad. She was not offended by this matter cause she had learned from her previous pass, and seemed happy and she proceeded that happiness.
  • Momma is an amazing person for her actions.
  • You know we are lucky to have momma.
  • Questions her brother why momma was acting happy after she was disrespected by the powhitetrash.
  • Momma is acting odd, but maybe she is not like all others and thinks before she does what she does.
  • You might be right sister.
  • Momma is a great person and she rarely does not take anything for granted. She is an amazing person cause she thinks positive of all things.
  • Momma is amazing and is very confident as well.
