Storyboard Text

  • "As the man who had cleared his throat drew up and raised his machete, Okonkwo looked away. He heard the blow. The pot fell and broke in the sand. He heard Ikemefuna cry, “My father, they have killed me!” as he ran towards him. Dazed with fear, Okonkwo drew his machete and cut him down. He was afraid of being thought weak."
  • "How could you do this to me father?!"
  • I'm sorry son, but I can not let myself look weak.
  • There is only one powerful god and you should join Christianity as it is the correct religion
  • Make the right decision and come this way
  • “Nwoye turned round to walk into the inner compound when his father suddenly overcome with Fury sprang to his feet and gripped him by the neck ‘ where have you been?’ he stammered. Nwoye struggled to free himself from the choking grip. ‘Answer me’ roared Okonkwo, ‘Before I kill you!’. He seized a heavy stick that leads on the dwarf wall and hit him two or three Savage blows… he left hold of Nwoye who walked away and never returned” (page 151-152)
  • I will leave my father, go to the white people church and never return!
  • I know he was with the Christians
  • “The Missionaries had come to Umuofia. They had to build their church there. Won some converts and we're already sending evangelists to the surrounding towns and villages” page 143
