Stepping Into Tomorrow: The Awakening
Stepping into Tomorrow: The Awakening throws a spotlight on the worsening condition of black men and women living in America and their survival or extinction, if they remain unconscious to what is happening in their lives.
The plight of black people is a major concern for Sheila, a young and upcoming chief executive officer (CEO) at one of Chicago's prominent financial, marketing, and investment firms. In her attempt to understand the black condition, Sheila must first understand the psychological stereotypes levied against blacks in general. She must also come to terms with the relationship between the black man and woman, their mind-set, and why she is unable to open herself to love.
Through her friends, Tameka, one of Chicago's top defense attorneys, and Connie, a successful small business owner, they, in their many debates and discussions, look at the plight of blacks.
Although these exchanges are informative, Sheila, however, still struggles with in her consciousness to find a solution that will bring her people to an awakened state. From her perspective, blacks are on a road that can only lead to destruction. Therefore, Sheila is convinced that an awakening is needed and that someone must sound the alarm.
