    • Synopsis
    • A look at the life of Eugene Allen, who served eight
      presidents as the White House’s head butler from
      1952 to 1986, and had a unique front-row seat as
      political and racial history was made.

      THE BUTLER is inspired by Wil Haygood’s
      Washington Post article about an African-American
      man who served as a butler to eight Presidents
      in the White House for over thirty years. From
      this unique vantage point, we trace the dramatic
      changes that swept American society from the civil
      rights movement to Vietnam and beyond, and how
      those changes affected this man’s life and family.
