Our narrator, Elliott James, brother of Billie James, recalls his brother’s last moments on earth. In the hospital with him; Mrs. James, their mother, and a white doctor. Elliott remembers his brothers talent and music. We learn Billie’s death is the result of a “bad operation.” Mrs. James is displeased with the outcome.
