Storyboard Text

  • Up Before the Sun
  • Made By: Sebastian Poe
  • Everyday before the Sun came up, the three children of Robert and Mary woke and went to the Mill to work.
  • The conditions in most of the mills were awful for Adults, let alone children.
  • Try to be quiet brother, the boss will hear
  • Because of the work that was given to children, there would be accidents- often with smashed fingers
  • A man named Lewis Hine went all over the country to photograph the children working, to bring awareness to those oblivious of the problem.
  • After enough people protested and took action, nearly 2000 kids in KS alone were able to attend school. Now, we celebrate the ability to have child labor laws by celebrating Labor Day and sharing stories in shows like Newsies.
  • Based on Worked to the Bone by Mackowiecki Lewis
