The essay will compare the similarities and the differences of the experiences, which the two slaves had. The two people focused on being Charlie Smith of Florida and Aunt Harriet Smith of Texas. The narrative of Charlie Smith took place on 1975 and that of Aunt Harriet Smith took place on 1941. Comparison of the narratives Many slaves in different states had different experiences in their lifetime. This was because they had different handlers who treated them differently. Some slave owners were human to their slaves while others treated their slaves as animals. In some cases, the treatment of slaves was the same. Slaves did not have a voice or any human rights. Their purpose was to serve and obey. John Henry Faulk recorded the interview of Aunt Harriet Smith in 1941. The interview was about her experience of slavery. She did not know her age and she belonged to J B, the baby boy. They lived in Hays County. She was born in slavery because her mother and grandmother were both slaves. They all used to plough the farm with an ox cook and clean for their master. On the farms, they used to pick cotton the whole day. Harriet said that during the slavery day they used to gather from house to house for prayers (Henry). Going to church in the morning was only for the white folks. Slaves were never allowed to attend church together with white folks. They would only go to church in the evenings.
