I took up that broom once more, then again [thumps podium]. I never cried out once. I wouldn't give Ms. Suan the satisfaction. That's how I learned to love the pain. Er'time I got hit, I took it as an opportunity...for defiance. To not give anyone the reaction they expected. Then, I thought again, maybe that there was freedom. But I couldn't reconcile why something everybody held so precious come from pain. There had to be an easier way to it than that.

Underground Season 2 Episode 6 Quotes

To tell you how I came to be free, first you gotta understand what bondage was like for me. How it attacks the senses. The sound of it. the crack of a whip like thunder. The feel of it...like you could barely take a full breath. The taste of it, like all your teeth, are made of copper. the smell of it. The fade in stench of everybody sold away; and the look of it, every eye turned down to the ground away from the horror.

The first thing I knew, was to be afraid of white men.
