From the Publisher:
In this revealing social history, one remarkable White House dinner becomes a lens through which to examine race, politics, and the lives and legacies of two of America?s most iconic figures.

In 1901, President Theodore Roosevelt invited Booker T. Washington to have dinner at the executive mansion with the First Family. The next morning, news that the president had dined with a black man sent shock waves through the nation. Fueled by inflammatory newspaper articles, political cartoons, and even vulgar songs, the scandal escalated and threatened to topple two of America?s greatest men.

In this smart, accessible narrative, one seemingly ordinary dinner becomes a window onto post?Civil War American history and politics, and onto the lives of two dynamic men whose experiences and philosophies connect in unexpected ways. Deborah Davis also introduces dozens of other fascinating figures who have previously occupied the margins and footnotes of history, creating a lively and vastly entertaining book that reconfirms her place as one of our most talented popular historians.Chronicles the political firestorm that erupted in 1901 after President Theodore Roosevelt invited Booker T. Washington--a former slave--to dine with the First Family at the White House, in a book that explores the racial tensions during the turn of the century.
