Biography: 

A "young Negro woman" at the time of this story, Minnie is Miss Reba's servant (96), mainly a maid but probably also the "cook" Boon mentions once (93). She has already been married "twice" (132). Ned describes her color as "high-brown" (161). Lucius describes her in terms of her teeth: the "richly alabaster matched and evenly serrated" white ones that shine in "the rich chocolate of her face," but especially the "middle right-hand upper one" that is a gold implant (97-98), and that somehow makes Reba's diamond earrings look small.
