Storyboard Text

  • They dressed us in boxing clothes. We were rushed to the front of the ballroom, where it smelled even more strongly of tobacco and whiskey. We were pushed into place around her.
  • Bring up the shines, gentlemen! Bring up the little shines!
  • Then, they put us in the boxing ring. We were the entertainment, pinned against each other for their entertainment.
  • Ring the bell before Jackson kills him a coon!
  • After the fighting, they ordered us to go change into our clothes, get our money, and leave. I thought I was not going to get a chance to give my speech.
  • Now that you're dressed, here's your pay. Five dollars for all fighters, except the winner gets ten dollars as a reward. Now leave.
  • But I was taken to the stage, where they laughed and jeered. My speech was a struggle with each word. The beating of the boxing did not allow me to think straight.
  • Social....responsibility ...Respons-. -sibility Social... ..equality. No sir.
  • Louder! More! Repeat! You weren't being smart, were, you boy.
  • Yet when I finished there was a thunderous applause I was surprised to see the superintendent come forth. Where awarded me a briefcase that had a scholarship to the state college for Negroes. I was so excited!
  • A dream began haunting me that night. My grandfather's laughter ringing in my ears. I would have no insight on its meaning until several years later.
