“LOOKING OVER THE PRESIDENT’S SHOULDER” is a play that will take place at the Bruce R. Watkins Cultural Heritage Center in collaboration the Black Repertory Theater of Kansas City.


When Alonzo Fields accepted a job as a butler at the White House in 1931, his plan was to work there for the winter. That winter lasted 21 years. Based on the real-life story of the grandson of a freed slave, Looking Over the President’s Shoulder is told from the unique perspective of the Chief Butler who served four U.S. Presidents and their families: Herbert Hoover, Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman and Dwight Eisenhower.
