About this title


The vivid and highly memorable characters in The Winds Of Tomorrow enables Donald Wilson to present innovative ideas and a definite philosophy of life, specifically, that Black people have often been stereotyped in books, film, and television, and that they are not all the same. "Some are heroes and some are villains." This premise leads readers into the thick of this dynamic plot, as Gene Stanton, a very successful and wealthy African American newspaper publisher, is faced with the same problems and everyday concerns that his White counterparts have to face, when he decides to expand his business by switching from publishing a Black weekly newspaper to an integrated daily, thus, becoming the country's only Black citizen to publish an integrated daily newspaper that happens to have mostly White employees. This storyline stimulates high dramatic interests, provocative narrative, and meaty subject matter as Stanton confronts family conflict and division amongst his attorney wife and their six adult children when his newspaper goes eyeball to eyeball against a powerful and ruthless competitor which creates a flourish of racism, infidelity, and greed. Stanton's life is further complicated when he becomes involved in a torrid love affair with a stunning young woman on the paper's editorial staff . . . This happens just before a grassroots political organization selects him to run for mayor. This modern day novel also deals with violence, drugs, interracial marriage, sexual t orientation, breast cancer and child abuse as it offers a wealth of stimulating ideas about our culture and family systems with a background of fast paced and exciting action sequences as Gene Stanton's life is threatened by a relentless would-be assassin. The Winds Of Tomorrow displays an intriguing contemporary profile of American life that clearly shows that the integration of races in this country can be successful, as it guides the readers
