Storyboard Text

  • Walking to School
  • Watching Painter Lady
  • Dinner
  • Free Food
  • Lou and the narrator were walking to school and saw a painter lady painting of their wall that they use as I guess a "Safe Place". I  believe this because they said in the story," We've been pitching pennies against that wall since we were little kids. Old folks have been dragging their chairs out to sit in the shade of the wall for years. Big kids have been playing handball against the wall since so-called integration when crazies' cross town..."
  • Buying White Paint
  • Lou and the narrator were leaving school and saw the painter lady putting string and white paint on the wall. I know this because, " When we came from school, the wall was slick with white. The painter lady was running string across the wall and taping it here and there."
  • The Wall
  • The painter lady came into the dinner and was asking the narrator's mom for all these werid types of orders like," Who ever heard of baked macaroni without cheese, or potato salad without eggs?'Do you have any bread made with unbleached flour?'"
  • Theme
  • Lou and the narrator buying white epoxy paint at a hardware store to cover up the painter lady's work. " We couldn't find black spray paint anywhere. But in a junky hardware store downtown we found a can of white epoxy paint."
  • When everyone saw the finished wall with Martin Luther King and many more insirping black people.
  • Don't judge others we you don't know them.
