Biography: 

This icon represents the two unnamed black men whom Bayard, trying to avoid a white child, swerves toward on his wild stallion ride through Jefferson. Since one is "playing a hose on the sidewalk" and the other is holding "a pitchfork," it seems safe to identify them as yardmen working for one of the white families who live on this "quiet" street (130). They are not injured, though Bayard is when the horse slips on the wet concrete; the "negro with the pitchfork" drives the stallion away from Bayard's fallen body.
