Lionel Harris has completed his new book “Dark Yesterdays - Bright Tomorrows”: a gripping and potent story that depicts the compassion and struggles of multiple characters through a time of war, change and fear.

Lionel B. Harris is a native of the city of Saint Louis, Missouri. After serving a three-year tour in the United States Army, he persistently pursued his writing desires while, simultaneously, engaging in a whole gamut of diverse and interesting jobs. Along with managing a large janitorial service (at the age of twenty-two), he was subsequently employed by the federal government—the Saint Louis Police Department, the Wagner Electic Company, the Potter Electic Company, and (most gratifying and enduring of them all) the Saint Louis public schools at the high school level. In addition to the foregoing, Harris worked part-time in the GED educational program, served as a department store salesman, drove a school bus for the Ferguson-Florissant School District (six years), and currently drives a courtesy bus for senior citizens in Saint Louis county.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Lionel Harris’s captivating work that delves into the idea that a man’s worth stems from more than his race and social class.

As a Texas-based soldier in the United States Army, who is relatively young and Black as well—Cpl. Tyrone Lattimore is generally regarded as soft-spoken, intelligent, and highly proficient. In some circles, however, the corporal is perceived as a societal enigma—a man who marches to the beat of a different but benevolent drummer, and that alternately makes him a very controversial figure. Actually, that analogy would be applicable to any particular period and to any depicted setting. But upon revisiting America in the 1960s, when the Vietnam War got underway, when political assassinations shocked our nation and when racial strife was rampant—Lattimore emerges as a bona fide anomaly and, seemingly, one without peer. He is dearly loved, respected, and practically revered by the majority of his superiors and his fellow soldiers—but not all of them. And that, ironically, is a grievous mystery to the corporal himself. Regardless of a man’s race, religion, or social status in life, he’s endowed with an insatiable love for mankind, and it sustains his very being. Lattimore can’t refrain from wondering, however, if his craving will ever be sated.

Readers who wish to experience this profound work can purchase “Dark Yesterdays - Bright Tomorrows” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
