Chapter 12 offers the one real window into the life and culture of Maycomb's black community. The scarcity of views into the "Quarters," the black residential part of town, most likely reflects accurately upon what it would be like to grow up as a white girl in the Deep South in the 1930s. Scout lives almost exclusively in a middle-class white world. The narrowness of her own experience, seen through the book, demonstrates the rigidity of Maycomb's segregated society.The First Purchase church as well as the congregation serves as a portrait of racial attitudes in Maycomb.
