Biography: 

The woman, who resembles "an ebony carving," lives with Christmas as man and wife in Chicago or Detroit (225). Since she is the only Negro woman whom the narrative mentions Joe living with, it seems likely that she is the woman Joe is remembering when he thinks about the possibility that Joanna might reject him: "'No white woman ever did that. Only a nigger woman ever give me the air, turned me out' (236).
