No fewer than eight Presidential administrations--from Taft through Eisenhower--are examined through the eyes of the White House staff--maids, assistants, servants, doormen and other "menial" workers. The main character is Lillian Rogers Parks, a maid at the White House for three decades and the author of the non-fiction book upon which this miniseries is based. Written by

Olivia Cole, who played the role of Maggie Rogers, is less than a year older than Leslie Uggams, who played the role of her adult daughter, Lillian Rogers Parks. In 'Roots' (1976), Leslie Uggams played Oliva Cole's mother-in-law. See more »
I really loved this movie, although it has been since it first aired, that I've seen it. I would love to see it again. Anything to do with history on America is worth seeing. I loved the settings; the time periods were tremendously done and the actors were superb. This was definitely a must see movie. I can't stress enough on the importance of this movie; the period it was done in; it's cast and what they did with the lives of those people that actually lived during this period. It is a piece of American history of which the likes will never be seen again. Thank you for giving me this opportunity to talk about a wonderful TV production.
