VIRTUAL - Wil Haygood | In Black and White: The Life of Sammy Davis, Jr.

Writing “with perspective, understanding and compassion to burn” (Chicago Sun-Times) across a storied 30-year career, Pulitzer Prize–nominated journalist Wil Haygood has worked at the Boston Globe, the Washington Post, and as a globetrotting investigative reporter. His 2008 Washington Post article “A Butler Well Served by This Election” told the story of the White House steward who bore witness to some of 20th-century America’s most notable events and figures. He later expanded the article into a bestselling book that was adapted into the critically acclaimed film The Butler, starring Forest Whitaker. Haygood is also the author of popular biographies of Adam Clayton Powell Jr., Sugar Ray Robinson, and Thurgood Marshall. His latest book delves into the life of the universally beloved yet enigmatic trailblazer and Rat Pack mainstay Sammy Davis, Jr.
