Description: 

On the map of this story, the square around the courthouse represents "the streets" of Jefferson. "That Evening Sun" begins by locating this setting in time rather than space, by contrasting the way, fifteen years ago, black women carried bundles of laundry on their heads from the homes of white patrons to their cabins with the present, in which the streets are paved and lined with telephone poles as well as trees, and the laundry is transported in "motor cars" (289).
