(At Easter's cabin)
Simon: Look mama.
Queen: Ma-ma. My papi gave these to my mumi. How every many years have they been here. Old Cptn. Jack used to read to me from then.
Abner: Who Cptn. Jack?
Queen: He was my grandpapi. He taught me to read and write with these here. He wasn't supposed to. It was illegal for niggers to read back then.
Simon: It is allowed now.
Queen: Yes it is. You gotta make good use of it boy.
