The kids sit in the balcony with the African-American population. They sit nearest to Reverend Sykes, who is the pastor of Calpurnia's church, First Purchase. The black people move to allow Jem, Scout and Dill places to sit, and it also offers the children protection from being seen by Atticus.

They sit in the back of the court room where most of the African American population of the town sat.

THe kids end up sitting with the black folks. The kids are last in the coart because they dont want Attticus to see them.
