Storyboard Text

  • Julia Alvarez
  • "She knew nothing of the horrid crimes of the dictatorship, for her parents were afraid to say anything- event their own children- against the regime" (Alvarez par. 3). 
  • "By the time my mother married my father, however, she knew all about the true nature of the dictatorship. Thousands had lost their lives in failed attempts to return the country to democracy" (Alvarez, Par. 5). 
  • "It was my father that my mother learned why Trujillo hated blacks with such vengeance, how he disguised his own Haitian ancestry, how he lightened his skin with makeup" (Alvarez, Par. 5). 
  • "If you did not march, your cedula would not be stamped, and without a stamped identification card, you could do nothing, in particular, you could not obtain your passport to leave the country" (Alvarez, Par. 11).
  • "I invent this scene because I want my mother to see what she cannot yet imagine: El Jefe coming undone" (Alvarez, Par. 14).
