As men opposed to this idea, he let the idea aside for future generation. At the end of his era, mostly his life, he signs his will and frees the slave as he promises within his life, well not really. The slave that was supposed to be free by the order of Jefferson wife, but they were sold after his death, along with his mansion and land were sold at an auction to another slave owner. It true that Jefferson didn’t give slave any sort of right, not even voting, but that because he didn’t want to lose his slave, as his slave was basically his lifestyle. If he would give slave right, then they would rise and end slavery during that time, which would be good, but a lot of white men that were under a lot of power would disagree.
This protectiveness pulled Cory from going to college by play baseball. Cory and Troy have a big fight because of this.

Although Mrs. Auld had great intentions to help Frederick but her husband on the other hand was against his education. Mr. Auld believed that literacy is an enemy to slaves and will ruin their lives. Fredrick as well mentions in his narration that “education and slavery were incompatible with each other” (Douglass).

Take for example Flush’s understanding of his class as a dog. Class is a human, racial, and economic creation which Flush understands in his own way; “Flush knew before the summer had passed that there is no equality among dogs: some dogs are high dogs; some are low” (Woolf, 19).
