Storyboard Text

  • Colored ONLY
  • I am a free citizen, I have the right to vote. 
  • You can only vote if you have paid your tax. If you haven't then you must leave immediately.
  • Ben Tillman is horrible and is taking away all my rights as a freedman.
  • I love Ben Tillman. He has an amazing way with words and I agree with his political actions. 
  • When Ben Tillman became governor of South Carolina he made Jim Crows Laws, stating that everything had to be "separate but equal"
  • Ben Tillman created obstacles that freedmen had to face in order to vote, like the Eight Box Law and Poll Tax. If freedmen could go through those they would be faced with the Grandfather Clause which states that your grandfather had to have voted before 1860.  
  • Poor whites liked Ben Tillman because of his great speaking and political skills. Tillman was a populist because he appealed to the values and needs of the common people against the Conservative elite.
