Storyboard Text

  • "He called me a nymphomaniac or necrophiliac, I couldn't have been more puzzled."
  • This quote was how she was puzzled when the boy called her the "n" word. She was confused when she heard it. She didn't know what it meant.
  • The quote shows how the author had no idea what the "n" word means. So she does what every kid does when they don't know something and asks her mom.
  • "I was later to go home and ask the inevitable question that every black parent must face-  'Mommy, what does nigger mean?'"
  • She talks about how the mom knew she would have to live in America. The mom knew that the word would be brought up a lot against her daughter so she explained it to her.
  • "That was the word I went the home and asked my mother about. And since she knew that I had to grow up in America, she took me in her lap and explained."
