Code: 
1225
Description: 

This location represents Negro residences mentioned by the narrator of Requiem for a Nun in his account of how the town of Jefferson has progressed over the years: "there were electric lights and running water in almost every house in town except the cabins of Negroes" (189). This is one of several passages in the fictions that racializes the distinction between 'houses' and 'cabins.'
