White House History Live: The West Wing and Beyond

Join us in learning more about White House History right from your own home. Our Facebook Live series, White House History Live, delves into the stories that make up the history of the Executive Mansion.

Only a handful of people witness the everyday workings of the White House and its longstanding traditions, as well as the most consequential moments and decisions of any presidency. The Chief Official White House Photographer captures all these moments and stories, visually documenting the entire arc of a president’s time in office. Pete Souza was the Chief Official White House Photographer for the entire tenure of the presidency of Barack Obama. He is the author of several books, including the #1 New York Times bestsellers Obama: An Intimate Portrait and Shade: A Tale of Two Presidents. This program will explore Souza’s new book, The West Wing and Beyond: What I Saw Inside the Presidency, and provide fascinating insights into life behind the scenes at the White House.

This event will be live streamed on the White House Historical Association's Facebook and YouTube pages starting at 5pm ET on October 4.
