Storyboard Text

  • In a rural area of Georgia where poverty was the usual lifestyle for most lived a black girl who was mistreated and taken advantage since young. Her childhood nor her road to adolescence was peachy nor a happy adventure and due to living in Georgia at this time period it made it very hard for her environment and community to be a good place to grow and evolve.
  • My name is Celie, I am fourteen years old, I live in Georgia with my daddy, my mammy, well before she died and my sister. My life isn't so great, my daddy haves me and killed my babies. I talk to God a lot and it makes me feel a lot better, but nobody cares about me why should he? Everybody says I'm ugly and I know it. I wish I looked like Shug, but I'm not the one to get what I want. I don't go to school because my daddy think I'm stupid, all I do is clean.
  • My name is Nettie, I'm Celie's little sister. As you can see I'm in school and i'm so happy to be, I wish Celie could be here but daddy say she dumb, I think she smart though. That's why I still teach her as much as I can.
  • My name is Mr._____, I will be Celie's husband throughout the story, although I would've preferred her little sister; Celie just fine with cooking, cleaning and taking care of the kids. Her daddy propositioned her to me he said her little sister had too much going for herself so I had to settle for Celie, sometimes I have to beat her cause that's what men to show women we are the ones in control always will be.
  • My name is Shug Avery, I'm beautiful and I don't take anything from anyone, I move around a lot from different cities, clubs, and many other places. I've dealt with and seen a lot of different things and I've met a lot of people, so I know some things about the world and how it works, I love how some see that in me and not think I'm some arrogant woman who has a "nasty woman disease," like Celie does.
  • The climax in the story is when Shug and Celie find out that Mr._________ has been hiding Nettie's letters from Celie all these years; the one person Celie truly loved in the world was separated from her due to Mr._________ keeping the letters from Celie. At this point Celie could no longer hold it together anymore, she finally gets the courage to stand up to him. Celie follows her heart and leaves Mr._______ she then follows Shug to Tennessee.
