Storyboard Description


Storyboard Text

  • Why are the hands of the black lighter than the rest of their bodies?
  • My teacher told me that it was because they used to walk like wild animals.
  • The palms of the black are much lighter than the rest of their bodies because centuries ago they used to walk on all fours, which made the rest of their bodies darker and darker.
  • But Father Chirstiano told me something else...
  • The hands of the black are lighter because they always go about with their hands folded together, praying in secret.
  • As the time went by I got more curious and curious, so curious that I won't let go of anyone, whoever they are, unless they tell me why they think the hands of the black are lighter than the rest of their bodies. Like Dona Dores for instance...
  • God made their hands like that so they won't dirty the food they made for their masters, or anything else they were ordered to do.
  • Ohhh.. 
  • Senior Antunes, the Coca Cola man, told me that everything I have been told was all baloney. Of course I don't really know if it really is, but he assured me it was.
  • All right then lad, I'm going to tell you what I know. Long long ago, the Heavenly Gods, all the Saints and the Angels, gathered for a meeting and decided to make the blacks. They did that by using clay and second hand molds. To bake them, they used Heavenly kilns, but since they were in a hurry they used the chimney. So they hanged them and let them cook. And here they are now as we know them, black like the smoke emitting from the coal.
  • All right, I guess it was all baloney..
  • After Senior Antunes told me what he knew, everyone around him were very pleased and started laughing. The very same day Senior Frias came up to me and told me everything he said was just a big pack of lies. And that he really knew the reason why.
  • When God has finished making men, he asked them to bathe in the lake. But the blacks were made very early in the morning, so the water was cold and they just washed their palms and soles of their feet.
