Storyboard Text

  • “The first object which saluted my eyes when I arrived on the coast was the sea, and a slave ship, which was then riding at anchor, and waiting for its cargo."
  • "These filled me with astonishment, which was soon converted into terror when I was carried on board. I was immediately handled and tossed up to see if I were sound by some of the crew; and I was now persuaded that I had gotten into a world of bad spirits, and that they were going to kill me."
  • "Their complexions too differing so much from ours, their long hair, and the language they spoke, (which was very different from any I had ever heard) united to confirm me in this belief."
  • "Indeed such were the horrors of my views and fears at the moment, that, if ten thousand worlds had been my own, I would have freely parted with them all to have exchanged my condition with that of the meanest slave in my own country.”
  • “I was soon put down under the decks, and there I received such a greeting in my nostrils as I had never experienced in my life; so that, with the [foulness] of the stench, and crying together, I became so sick and low that I was not able to eat, nor had I the least desire to taste anything."
  • "I now wished for the last friend, death, to relieve me; but soon, to my grief, two of the white men offered me [food]; and, on my refusing to eat, one of them held me fast by the hands… while the other flogged me severely.”
