Storyboard Text

  • Hi guys, I am Dorothea Dix. I have come to teach Sunday school
  • This is a prison cell in 1841. Our prison conditions are terrible, we need help
  • Mister. Do you see what they are doing in those prison cells. We've got to fix this.
  • Ma'am calm down. I'll try to get this reform movement on the way.
  • Mister. We need to get these prisoners better conditions and hospitals for the mentally ill.
  • Ok ma'am. I'll do my best to change the conditions for the prisoners and get asylums for the mentally ill.
  • "I proceed call your attention to the present state of insane persons, cages, closets, cellars, stalls, pens! chained naked, beaten with rods, and lashed into obedience!"
  • Ok Ma'am. I will work with lawmaker to try to build asylums for the mentally ill.
  • Thank you sir for changing the prisons to more likeable conditions for the prisoners and building hospitals for the mentally ill.
  • You're welcome Mrs.Dix! Thank you for bringing the conditions to my attention. It won't happen again.
  • Thanks to this prison reform movement the prisons in the future will have better conditions and the mentally ill will have hospitals to go to.
  • Yep! All because of this prison reform movement. The prisons will have appropriate conditions.
