Storyboard Description

Erma died, and when Jeannette’s dad didn’t come home for a few days her mom told her she needed to find her. Although going to the bar shook her up a little, what really scared her was when her Uncle Stanley touched her in an inappropriate place. Jeannette and Brian found an expensive ring that could have bought them a lot of food but when they showed their mom she took it because she said it would help her self-esteem. Jeannette figured in her head that the only way to upgrade the lifestyle they were living was for her mom to leave her dad, but when she told her mom her plan her mom refused. Jeannette’s father never found out about her proposition to her mom, and still thought Jeannette was his biggest supporter that summer. One afternoon that summer she went swimming with Dinitia when the African Americans swam because Jeannette wasn’t welcome otherwise. When Jeannette was alone a person from child services came by claiming a neighbor had called saying her parents were neglecting her and her siblings. He left promising to come back later, but he never did, and Jeannette’s mom resolved to get a job. Jeannette’s mother got a job as a teacher, and Jeannette and Lori made a budget so that they would have enough for food, so their mom would still have a generous allowance, and so that in time they could install insulation. But their mom never handed over the money so they continued living as they had before Jeannette’s mom got a job.
