A novel by William Karl Thomas

A beautiful and talented black female journalist is an intimate friend of black entertainment and political celebrities during the turbulent civil rights era in the 1950's and 1960's. Her professional and private life takes a quantum leap when she crosses paths with a cynical but equally talented white male publicist. Sparks fly from their first meeting and throughout a stormy passionate affair that survives their independent assignments to foreign countries. The drama of this turning point in history includes contact and comments with Lena Horne, Dorothy Dandridge, Billie Holiday, Brock Peters, James Baldwin, Red Foxx, Tom Bradley, Dorothy Height, Golda Meir, Tefawa Belawa, and other civil rights pioneers.
