Born in Mississippi, Winston left school at an early age to work in coal mines and later became involved in the labor movement. He joined the Young Communist League in 1931 and the Communist Party in 1933. He quickly rose through the ranks and was elected to the National Committee in 1936. During World War II, Winston was drafted into the army but was later court-martialed and imprisoned for his political beliefs. After his release, he continued his work with the Communist Party and was elected chairman in 1966. Winston was also an author who wrote about a variety of topics, including race, class, and the history of the Communist Party. His works include "Strategy for a Black Agenda" (1973), "Class, Race, and Black Liberation" (1977), and "The Meaning of San Francisco" (1984)."
