Hello Everyone:

I hope everyone receiving this e-mail has seen “The Butler”.  It is one of the most powerful movies I’ve seen in quiet awhile. The movie is “inspired” by the real life of Eugene Allen who served eight U.S. Presidents portrayed in the movie by actor Forest Whitaker.
When viewing the movie; be aware some of the events and characters were changed in order to protect people or make an emotional impact lesser or greater so that the viewer captures the vision and feelings conveyed during the various time periods under eight presidents,
 –
It amazing that this whole story came about thur  Wil Haygood, a reporter for The Washington Post who wanted to find an African American who had witnessed at the White House what the impending election ofSenator Barack Obama becoming America’s first African American president.

I included Eugene Allen’s Bio which contains a fastening video clip by reporter Wil Haygood.
