Lusane traces the racial history of the White House from George Washington to Barack Obama. From the very beginning, the tension between the nation's ideals and the practices of its leaders produced glaring contradictions: Washington's deliberate circumvention of the law to hold on to slaves while living in Philadelphia, Lincoln's struggle to keep a fractious nation together and come to terms with his own racial biases, and the struggle of others to balance party and political concerns against a burgeoning civil rights movement. A sweeping portrayal of changing historical tides at the White House.
