"The warm bittersweet smell of clean negro welcomed us as we entered the churchyard- Hearts of Love hairdressing mingled with asafoetida, snuff, Hoyt's Cologne, Brown's Mule, peppermint and lilac talcum." (Pg 118)
"When they saw Jem and me with Capurnia, the men stepped back and took off their hats; they women crossed their arms at tbeir waists, weekday gestures of respectful attention. They parted and made a small pathway to the church door for us. Calpurnia walked between Jem and me, responding to the greetings of her brightly clad neighbors." (Pg 118)
"What you up to, Miss Cal? Said a voice behind us. Calpurnias hands went to our shoulders and we stopped nd looked around: standing in the path behind us was a tall Negro women. Her weight on one leg; she rested her left elbow in the curve of her hip, pointing at us with upturned palm. She was bullet headed with strange almond-shaped eyes, straight nose, and an Indian-bow mouth. She seemed seven feet high. (Pg 119)
"I felt Calpurnia's hadn dig into my shoulder. "What you want, Lula?" she asked in tones I had never heard her use. She spoke quietly, contemptuously. "I wants to know why you bringin' white chillun to nigger church." " They's my comp'ny," said Calpurnia. Again I thought her voice strange: She was talking like the rest of them. (Pg 119)
"One of them stepped from thecrowd. It was Zeebo, the garbage collector. "Mister Jem," he said, "we're mighty glad to have you all here. Don't pay no 'tention to Lula, she's contentious because Reverand Sykes threatened to church her. She's a trouble maker from way back, got fancy ideas an' haughty ways- we're mighty glad to have you all." (Pg 119)
"With that Calpurnia led us to the church door where we were greeted by Reverend Sykes, who led us to the front pew. First Purchase Church was unceiled and unpainted within. Along it's walls unlighted kerosene lamps hung on brass brackets; pine benches served as pews... It was dim inside, with a damp coolness slowly dispelled by the gathering congregation." (Pg 120)
