Storyboard Text

  • Many woman around the world cannot read/write in the language they think and speak in. If you possess this skill, you owe a debt of gratitude to someone.
  • I owe these skills to my mother for teaching me to read at a young age
  • I was not the first child she taught. She read her Little Golden Books to a young girl in Africa.
  • My mother was gifted a white elephant as a way to say thanks. This was a gift that she could not keep, but she could not refuse.
  • The elephant was shipped to a sanctuary zoo in NYC where it would spend the rest of its days
  • My mother returned to the American south (Georgia) in the 1950s when a time of racial tension and segregation was happening. My mother has never thrown anyone away or outlived her usefulness. By promoting literacy, she has changed the world.
