Storyboard Text

  • Main Idea
  • The 14th Amendment was put in place in 1868 soon after the 13th Amendment. It basically stated that everyone in the USA, either born a citizen or naturalized as a citizen, are no longer considered property and have the same protection from the law as any other citizen of the USA.
  • Setting and Point of View
  • Southern slave owners and slave states ignored and hated the new amendment, and they didn't let it prevent them from finding other alternatives to discrimination.
  • African Americans were excited to be seen as a citizen rather than property.
  • The 14th Amendment was established in the House of Representatives in 1868.
  • Post Sherman's March: The South
  • Ha! I'm no longer considered property Mr. Legree, I'm just like you!
  • I want to start a business!
  • No, you weren't even born here, so you're not a citizen. But I was born here in the US, so I'm a citizen. Now get back to work!
  • Cartoon Conflict: A Week Later
  • Hey, Uncle Jack told me this amendment said I could become naturalized, then I would be a citizen.
  • I want to choose where I get to live one day...
  • You can't even read boy! Why try? Besides, even then policeman won't come to help you like they would for me!
  • We're all Citizens!
  • Wait, so race, religion, heritage...none of that makes a difference?
  • That's where your wrong, I'll have protection from the constitution just as much as you once I'm naturalized.
  • Nope, I can easily become a citizen. I'am no longer property! I'm a citizen!
  • Significance
  • The 14th Amendment shaped and began the original truth that not only men are equal, but they are also publicly included and seen as equal. The 14th Amendment made an official push towards true equality.
