Jacobs Development During slavery slaves were not allowed to own houses money or businesses because they were property themselves After reading Harriet Jacobs Incident in the Life of a Slave Girl Seven Years Concealed I found that her family was very privileged to be slaves Jacobs job while being a slave was to be the play mate of a little white girl She was treated the same way the little girl was treated they wore the same clothes they ate the same food and played with the same toys Compared to other slave children she was living the good life Even Jacobs herself states that she did not know she was a slave before the age of six Her grandmother a slave herself lived in her own home owned her own business which is unheard of for a slave The grandmothers mistress was a kind enough woman to let her keep a her home and her business along with the money she made By Jacobs seeing this she developed the mind of a person that is not a slave Seeing her father mother and grandmother receiving respect from others empowered her to have confidence in herself regardless that she is slave This reflected on how she acted towards Dr Flint sexual advances Although she was a slave she still knew that she was a woman and he will not do anything she doesnt want him to do Jacobs confidence and self-esteem remained unchanged when Mrs Flint terrorized her in the night and when Dr flint hit her for the first time Without the strength of her family Harriet Jacobs would have never grown up to believe that she didnt have to take her masters abuse and she wouldnt think she deserved the same treatment as her white counterparts
