"The Butler" is one of the most hotly anticipated films of the Summer. It tells the story of Eugene Allen, who served as the butler to eight American presidents. Charles Allen is his son, and Wil Haygood wrote the book that inspired the film. They both spoke to Anderson about this extraordinary story.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
