Description
In this revealing social history from the author of Party of the Century: The Fabulous Story of Truman Capote and His Black and White Ball, a remarkable White House dinner in 1901 becomes a lens through which to examine race, politics, and the legacies of two iconic American leaders. Following the publication of Booker T. Washington's Up from Slavery, Theodore Roosevelt invited him to dine with the First Family. News that the president had hosted a former slave sent shock waves through the nation, fueled by inflammatory articles, political cartoons, and even vulgar songs. Deborah Davis's lively and entertaining book also introduces dozens of intriguing figures who have lingered at the margins of history.

"A panoramic view of America at the turn of the 20th century ... Davis's book is a marker of how far the country has come."Washington Post
