We Organized Summary

Ajax is a slave living on a plantation. Ajax is very good with the whip, but he refuses to knock a wasps nest off a tree. He knows the wasps will attack, but the master of the plantation wants him to do it to prove his ability with the whip. The master is a cruel man who grows even more cruel over time, beating the slaves for simple offenses, including just a desire to lash out. Then one day the master of the plantation offends a woman from the Congo. That night the slaves organize, taking a button from the master's jacket and pinning it to a doll that they hang from a tree and chant to. Soon the master begins hearing music in his head that causes him great fright. The master frees all the slaves and sends them away.
