Protocol: The Power of Diplomacy
About this Video
Our Facebook Live series, White House History Live, delves into the stories that make up the history of the Executive Mansion.
In foreign affairs, protocol refers to the rules, norms, and conventions that govern the interactions between heads of states. The details of such delicate conversations matter, particularly how such meetings are structured and executed. Former senior White House staffer Capricia Marshall will discuss her new book, “Protocol: The Power of Diplomacy” and provide a behind-the-scenes account as a witness and key adviser to American diplomatic history.
