Mrs. Turner is a mixed-race woman. She despises her "blackness" and longs to be white.

"Through Turner and the town's treatment of Turner, Hurston comments negatively on the people who turn away from their culture and try to be something that they are not. Turner is a much disliked character in the story; all of her "white" features are described as blunt and ugly. She has a weak husband and a weak son."
