Storyboard Text

  • Susie Baker King Taylor was born on August 6, 1848 in Liberty County, Georgia. She was the daughter of slaves.
  • I have been blessed with a beautiful daughter.
  • We shall call her Susie!
  • This is your new school, Susie. You must study and work hard.
  • She was sent to Savannah, Georgia to live with her grandmother. She attended school there despite the harsh laws against black people being educated. This was a law before the Civil War.
  • Yes, grandma.
  • When the Civil War broke out, she moved to St. Simon Islands, Georgia with her uncle. Many army officers came to know about her educational advantage and asked her to teach at a school. The condition was that they would provide the books.
  • 1+1=2 2+2=4
  • Susie met and married her first husband-Edward King- whilst teaching at the school. He was a regiment's sergeant.
  • I do.
  • She travelled with him and worked as a laundress. Susie taught soldiers to read and write during their free time. Aiding wounded soldiers was also something she did to help.

  • Help! Help!
  • Edward King died a few months before the birth of their son.
  •   There, there. You mustn't cry.
  • Edward, why did you leave me?!
