Based on Wil Haygood's Washington Post "A Butler Well Served by This Election." It's a story of Eugene Allen, a black man who served as a White House butler for 34 years.
Allen started at the White House as a "pantry man" in 1952 when blacks weren't allowed to use public restrooms in his native Virginia. He ended up serving eight presidents and had a unique front row seat as political and racial history was being made, from the Vietnam War and the civil rights movement to the assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr., President John F. Kennedy and Robert Kennedy Jr.
