Description: 

While they work to build their own church, Goodyhay's congregation meets in what Mink characterizes as a former "nigger schoolhouse" just beyond a crossroads (304). This make-shift church is "an unpainted box of a building" lying in "empty" country (304). Its large interior is depicted in a similar manner with "backless benches" for the congregation and, at the front of the room, a "plank laid across two saw-horses" for Brother Goodyhay himself (307).
