Their Eyes Were Watching God Map
Transcript of Their Eyes Were Watching God Map
Janie lives with her Nanny here in West Florida. This is where she plays with the Washburn kids and where she has her first kiss with Johnny Taylor. She marries Logan Killicks and lives on his farm with him here.
Janie runs away with Joe Starks to Eatonville. Eatonville is a town of only African Americans. It is very small when they get there but Joe buys more land and builds a store. He is made mayor of the city. He puts Janie to work in the store. They live here for a long time until Joe gets old and dies. Janie meets Tea Cake here at Eatonville.
Janie gets married to Tea Cake here in Jacksonville. This is where Tea Cake takes Janie's money to throw a party. They do not stay here in Jacksonville for very long because they soon get jobs in the Everglades.
Tea Cake and Janie move to the Everglades for work. They work in the fields together because they can't stand to be away from each other. While they are in the Everglades a terrible hurricane comes through. Most of the people leave but Tea Cake and Janie stay because they do not want to miss a days work. During the hurricane Tea Cake gets bitten by a rabid dog and gets rabies.
West Palm Beach
Janie and Tea Cake go to West Palm Beach to get away from the hurricane. While here they need to make money so Tea Cake tries to do whatever he can to make money. He got a job burying all the dead bodies from the hurricane. They do not stay here long before they go back to the Everglades.
Janie and Tea Cake return to the Everglades after the hurricane does its damage. When they return Tea Cake gets very sick and stays in bed. Janie goes to get a doctor to help Tea Cake. The doctor tells them that Tea Cake has rabies from the dog. The doctor goes to get medicine, but tells Janie that it is most likely too late for the medicine. Tea Cake is not able to drink water because of the rabies. He starts to go insane. He tries killing Janie but Janie had a gun of her own and shoots Tea Cake before he is able to kill her. She goes to trial for the murder of Tea Cake but is let go because it was out of self-defense. Janie is grieving Tea Cake's death much and is saddened.
Janie returns to Eatonville after Tea Cakes funeral. She walks into town wearing her overalls and many people in the town think that Tea Cake took all her money and left her and that is why she is walking into town in just overalls. She meets up with her friend, Pheoby, and begins to tell her story, so that Pheoby will understand that Tea Cake did not take all her money, but that they were actually in love.
