According to Aristotle, plot is the means by which a story is told or unfolds. In my plot, I have revised the narrative regarding the artist of color. The “native informant” dies because there is no longer a need for him to exist. The artist of color escapes from the narrowly defined constraints of how his work can be viewed and understood. His work is considered for its accomplishments (or failures) technically, aesthetically, and conceptually.
