The image of â??The Rockpileâ?? by James Baldwin is of a community with an odd mixture of good and bad people. It is a community of faith, although some only possess a very casual spirituality. Itâ??s also a neighborhood of fear as the brothers' mother tries to keep her sons from the violence that lurks nearby.
