really liked it

Interesting review of the diner encounter between Theodore Roosevelt and Booker T. Washington - the first African American invited to dinner at the White House. TR and Booker T. are characters that become more fascinating with time, and how TR solicited Washington's views was groundbreaking. I think it says a lot about both men that they did not think the dinner invitation was such a big deal. Of course, once it became public it was debated and critiqued for years.
