The climax and conflict of Hughes' short story would revolve around a young boy stealing an old lady's pocketbook.  The conflict happens fairly early in the story, as the boy tries to steal and is caught in turn by the elderly lady.  After this conflict, the story takes a turn as the woman takes the boy to her home, feeds and cleans him, and talks to him about the choices made and the better choices that he needs to make.  In my mind, the climax happens when the boy is standing on the landing outside the woman's apartment and he wants to muster up enough courage to say something.  All he can say is "Thank you, Ma'am."  Of all that is in his mind, this is the only thing that the boy can say.
