Storyboard Text

  • Frederick Douglass jumped around from plantation to plantation, like an orphan jumping from house to house, meeting very nice people and very mean, but none of them were nearly as terrible as Covey. Frederick was a kid born in the 1800’s that was raised on a plantation in Maryland. He was a slave kid that was tortured, was separated from his mom at a young age, and he always pushed so hard to someday become free.

After hearing about Frederick’s situation, Sandy told him that he used to be a slave as well and Sandy gives Frederick a “magic” root to protect him from being whipped. Frederick didn’t believe that the root actually had magic powers in the beginning, but he didn't want to hurt Sandy's feelings. After Frederick returned to the farm, he didn’t get whipped for a while. During the first encounter with Covey since Douglass had returned, Covey seemed awfully nice.
