Storyboard Text

  • The Spanish brought African slaves to Ecuador to work on sugar plantations.
  • I'm not sure, but I think we're being sold at an auction.
  • Conditions on sugar plantations were terrible. The days were long, and the work was hard.
  • I've told the overseer I've worked for two days straight and I'm too sore to work anymore. He just hit me again.
  • I hope nothing tries to eat me!
  • Many slaves ran away, some even ran to the Amazon!
  • When Ecuador wanted independence from Spain, many slaves join Simon Bolivar to fight the Spanish.
  • The enemy of my enemy is my friend. Lets join Simon Bolivar!
  • African slaves were considered the least important in society by the Spanish, even after slavery ended.
  • Slavery is now illegal, but I still have the same job, I am paid almost nothing, and my family and I are starving.
  • Afro-Ecuadorians are still fighting for their rights in Ecuador to this day.
  • The way Ecuador's laws are made is unfair. Ecuador's laws are made by the National Assembly, but out of 124 people, only 7 are Afro-Ecuadorian.
