Storyboard Text

  • This story takes place in a time were there was a terrible thing called slavery .Slavery was was when African american people were all taken from their homes and families to work in farms with hot weather and hard labor that they don't get paid for .Once there was a slave named Frederick Douglass ,He didn't know a lot because he was a slave and slaves couldn't know simple things like when their birthdays were or old they were .One day he was working then he was told he was gonna go to baltimore city a place that he will work for the Auld family .So he hopped on a boat with sheep on it to get to Baltimore .
  • When Frederick got there it was crowded the streets were filled with all sorts of people white and black people which was different for him because usually white people would punish black people on the farm .He was making his way through the crowds of people when finally he made it to the to the Aulds home .He was greeted by a very kind woman she said hi my name is mrs.Auld what's yours Frederick never knew that someone actually cared about who he was he was very surprised but then came out a man named mr.Auld he was the standard slaveholder to Frederick .  
  • Mrs.Auld was being super nice to frederick by saying things like its okay to look me in the eye and she fed him very well he didn't know how to respond to such kindness because before it was very rude to look any white person in the eye and you would get punished .One time after he was done working mrs.Auld wanted to teach him letters which was illegal and was looked down upon but she did it anyway she didn't know how bad slavery was because she was from the north and never experienced slavery .She was teaching him but then mr.Auld walked in then he pulled mrs.Auld aside to another room then he was yelling at her and saying you can't do that it will make him unfit to be a slave and make him want to escape and to be free so ever since then she never did it again but not just that she changed .
