Storyboard Text

  • Virginia
  • Slave Regina Falange has been on this tobacco plantation since she was a teenage girl. Although tobacco used to be a flourishing industry, it is weakening because of cotton expansion, a declining market, and the exhaustion of land
  • I have been out in this heat for the past 10 hours! I am sick of working for an industry going downhill. 
  • Alabama
  • Regina has been transferred to a cotton plantation in Alabama. She now works on picking the crop as well as picking out the seeds. She is currently singing a popular slave song to pass the time
  • Lord call us home, deliver us to freedom and take us to the Promised Land!
  • Regina now resides on a medium plantation with even more slaves than before. She has just completed hoeing the area shown, but her mean overseer insists she does more work, even though according to the task system, she should be done now
  • Gee, I am exhausted
  • How dare you rest! Back to work immediately, you whore! Or you will be raped!
  • Georgia
  • Thank you Ms. Falange!
  • Regina is now a household servant for the Smith family in Georgia. After finishing cooking a meal for her owners, she is being a nurse to tend to little Betty's injuries.  She lives right in the big house and is lucky to get along with most of the family
  • Charleston, South Carolina
  • The Smith family kicked Regina out due to rumored sexual relations she had with the man of the house. She was then transferred to the city, where she enjoys some freedom while running errands. She is still unhappy to be a slave, but is working hard to buy her way out of the system
  • Just got off working in the docks! I am on my way to meet a free black I met the other day.
  • Dear Lord, please help me acquire a job so I can pay my brother's way to freedom
  • Regina's last owner died and she was able to escape and head to the North. Her life is by no means easy, but she prefers it over being a slave
  • New York City
