Storyboard Text

  • A New York cotton plantation, 1818
  • But!
  • Congratulations! You're free! You can now live freely in New York.
  • You can't work certain jobs, you cant vote preform jury duty or socialize with any whites, your children have to go to an all black school, your family will have to go to an all black church, you can't work in congress, you cant interracially marry and you have to have a $250 property value to vote.
  • Doesn't that take away from my political, economic and social freedom?
  • I don't see how it would take away from your political, economic, and social freedom. 
  • Well first of all, I won't be able to choose my job because I don't have any option because no one wants to hire me. Also in order to vote I have to have a property  value of $250 which means that I can't spend my money how I want. Both of these infringe my economic freedom.
  • Second of all, if I don't have a $250 property value i can't vote at all! And I can't have any government jobs or work in congress or even perform jury duty which takes away from my political freedom 
  • And third of all, scince schools and churches are segregated i wont be able to communicate with white and they won't want to talk to me which takes away from my social freedom because I will not be able to schoose who I socialize with,
  • I understand now. Thank you for opening my eyes.
  • No problem. 
  • All evidence comes from documents A, B, C, and D in the DBQ packet
