casey diometre | 1 comments there is many differences between Lyddie and Harriet. Lyddie doesn't get beat or have to watch someone get beat but Harriet watches that very often. That is one of the many differences between Lyddie and Harriet.

Crazyblue.eyeslion | 1 comments The difference between lyddie's inslavement and african anerican's inslavement is that lyddie is getting help from people because she's light skin by that time in the book lyddie they catched afrian americans as slaves.Also if your an african american slave you can not learn how to read or write and get whooped for disrespecting your master and all that stuff....sad

message 20: by Malasia (new)

Malasia Daniels | 1 comments Harriet situation is different from Lyddie because Harriet witness someone being sold and someone being whip,but Lyddie seen some slave master looking for his slave. Lyddie has never seen a slave before , so she witness the slave in house that she use to live. Also Harriet lost her childern from being sold time ,that's also happen in Lyddie she heard that the slave had a family that was still in slavery while he ran away.
