Black Boy Chapter 14 Summary

  • Jackpot! Aunt Maggie’s husband deserted her and she came to Memphis. That’s sad for her, but it’s great for Richard and Alan, because they join up with her to make an escape plan. They’re still short a little money, but it’s now or never for these three.
  • Two days before D-Day, Richard tells his boss he’s leaving. They’re not happy, but there’s nothing they can do. He peaces out into the sunset.
  • Yes, that is it. This is a super short chapter.
