Wil Haygood, staff writer for The Washington Post and a National Endowment for the Humanities fellow, tells the story of how he came to write about retired White House maître d’ Eugene Allen. While covering the 2008 presidential campaign of then-Senator Barack Obama, Haygood went in search of an African-American who had worked in the White House during the days of segregation. He found Eugene Allen, who worked for eight presidents over more than 30 years. Haygood’s article in the Post was an international sensation. It led to Haygood writing a book, The Butler: A Witness to History, and inspired a major film, Lee Daniels’ The Butler.
