Lusane peers behind the curtain in the nation’s highest office in his latest work. He gives readers an inside look at the rich history of the White House by tracing the seldom-revealed contributions of black men and women, from the days of its construction to the present. By threading personal stories of slaves, builders, chefs, and others with sharp analyses of leaders facing the criticism and challenges of their times, Lusane provides an eye-opening tribute and a provocative reminder of the many narratives that have gone untold.
