Best known as the author of the New York Times bestseller "The Butler: A Witness to History," Wil Haygood is a distinguished writer whose career has spanned decades. He was an associate producer on the film adaptation of his book, "The Butler," which was sparked from his Washington Post article.
Haygood’s newest book "Showdown: Thurgood Marshall and the Supreme Court Nomination that Changed America," a sweeping epic about the real-life events surrounding the heated appointment of Thurgood Marshall, the first African-American Supreme Court justice, remains just as impressive as his sixth book "The Butler."
The title of Haygood's talk is "Bringing Black History to the Screen... Untold Stories That Shape American History."
