Storyboard Text

  • My name is Olaudah Equiano, this is my family. My father is a village chief, and these are my siblings and mother.
  • “The first object which saluted my eyes when I arrived on the coast was the sea, and a slave ship."
  • *Speaking in english*
  • "Their complexions too differing so much from ours, their long hair, and the language they spoke"
  • "Such were the horrors of my views and fears at the moment, that, if ten thousand worlds had been my own, I would have freely parted with them all to have exchanged my condition with that of the meanest slave in my own country.”
  • *sickness*
  • "I was not able to eat, nor had I the least desire to taste anything. I now wished for the last friend, death, to relieve me."
  • "Two of the white men offered me food and, on my refusing to eat, one of them held me fast by the hands… while the other flogged me severely.”
  • * Olaudah being flogged*
