Biography: 

Though the Negroes in Freedman Town, the specifically black section of Jefferson, are described as "invisible" to Joe, as he walks past their cabins he is very conscious of the way they seem to enclose him, "like bodiless voices murmuring talking laughing in a language not his" (114). He is particularly conscious of the murmuring "bodiless fecundmellow voices of [the] negro women" there (115).
