That the character whitegirl followed the condition of her mother into indentured servitude cannot be understood as incidental:”…she had me and died right after, well, they said I had to work for em to pay it off. I did, but now I want me some velvet” (40). In what way and to what effect is Amy Denver’s indentured servitude juxtaposed with Sethe’s enslavement? What are some of the similarities and what is the absolute difference between their experience? How do you relate this to the fact that, in spite of the importance of her name, Sethe, and usually the narrative, refer to her as whitegirl?
