A beautiful African American lady is set to marry Jim, the rich and handsome Caucasian man of her dreams. What she doesn't realize is that Jim was once engaged to a Caucasian woman who is now very angry and upset that her man has called off the wedding to be with some new black girl. She is jealous and wants revenge, but most of all she wants to stop the black woman from marrying a man that was supposed to belong to her all along. In the end, will Jim end up marrying the new black woman he proposed to? And what could the dumped white woman in his life possibly do to upset his planned nuptials?
The final homicide and the consequent act of surrender by Moses, the murderer, convey his paradoxical attitude toward his white master beloved. This attitude begins with hatred, intensifies with mutual affection, and ends in murder. Through an interdisciplinary link between the Double-Effect Reasoning and the psychoanalytical perspective to the black problem promoted by Frantz Fanon, The Grass Is Singing thus seems to exempt Moses in his crime against the white race, represented by Mary, as well as to justify Moses self-surrender in defense of negritude and black honor.
