Yeoman Farmer, Slave, Master
The yeoman farmer in the movie was all the poor white people. They worked hard enough just to feed the family. They were free and had better life styles than the slaves. The slave in the movie is Jim. He has the hardest life style because he has to work starting at sunup to sun down. If he has a nice master then it would be better but he still would not be free. The master in the movie was all the rich white people in the movie. They had the best life compared to all other people. They didn't have to work in the field. Most had around 50 slaves.
