Description: 

The African American church where Dilsey worships is located on the edge of the black neighborhood. From the road it appears set on "a painted backdrop": beside "a cut of red clay crowned with oaks . . . a weathered church lifted its crazy steeple like a painted church" (292). Inside it is decorated for Easter "with sparse flowers from kitchen gardens and hedgerows, and with streamers of colored crepe paper" (292).
