The event at chapel which affects the narrator most is the speech of the Reverend Barbee. The narrator touches on "dark" imagery" such as a dark conspiracy, a funeral procession, and the journey underground. Another clue of this man falling into a pattern of the narrator's life is the dark-glasses the reverend "hides" behind, a notion which will surface in later chapters. Certainly "black " is also important in the fact that he is hiding his blindness behind the glasses while creating an illusion for the audience to see into and believe.
