-Three Black Boys- is an urban-fiction tale bursting with real-life, time-sensitive issues. The story follows three African-American teenagers-Barnes, Demus, and Baker, and an Irish-American surgeon-Doctor Salome McBryant, on their separate quest to secure financial funding for Babita Harris, an Indian immigrant plagued with black-fever disease. The setting is South-side Jamaica, a neighborhood in Queens, New York, and home to Babita Harris, who unkwingly contracted the disease, while visiting her parents in India. Now, Babita's liver is damaged, and scarred beyond repair-t even dialysis can help. She is told she has a month to live, unless she undergoes a costly liver transplant. But Babita is uninsured, health insurance, so the chance of a surgery is slim. What she needs is a quarter of a million dollars in cash. So, Barnes (Babita's only son), along with his two friends, Demus and Baker, spring into dangerous action to get the money. Though their road is paved with good intentions, the brothers in arms are in for a few surprises and a whole lot of heat.
