Storyboard Text

  • Go home and write a page tonight. And let that page come out of you-- Then, it will be true.
  • The instructor said,
  • I wonder if it's that simple? I am twenty-two, colored, born in Winston-Salem. I went to school there, then Durham, then here to this college on the hill above Harlem. I am the only colored student in my class.
  • The steps from the hill lead down into Harlem, through a park, then I cross St. Nicholas, Eight Avenue, Seventh and I come to the Y,
  • the Harlem Branch Y, where I take the elevator up to my room, sit down, and write this page:
  • It's not easy to know what is true for you or me at twenty-two, my age. But i guess I'm what I feel and see and hear, Harlem, I hear you: hear you, hear me--we two--you, me, talk on this page. (I hear New York, too) Me--who?
  • Well, I like to eat, sleep, drink, and be in love. I like to work, read, learn, and understand life. I like a pipe for a Christmas present, or records--Bessie, bop, or Bach.
  • I guess being colored doesn't make me not like the same things other folks like who are other races. So will my page be colored that I write?
  • Being me, it will not be white. But it will be a part of you, instructor. You are white-- yet a part of me, as I am a part of you. That's American. Sometimes perhaps you don't want to be a part of me. Nor do I want to be a part of you. Be we are, that's true! As I learn from you, I guess you learn from me-- although you're older-- and white-- and somewhat more free.
  • This is my page for English B.
