'Out From the Shadow': Charles L. Gittens
Local author Maurice A. Butler will discuss the life of Charles L. Gittens, the first African-American Secret Service Agent.
Join your neighbors on Feb. 19 at 7 p.m. at the Lamond-Riggs Neighborhood Library. The author's inspiration came from meeting Mr. Gittens when he met with Mr. Butler's students at Roosevelt High School. Mr. Gittens's story spans working in the deep south, New York City, and being the Director of the Washington, D.C. Secret Service Field Office.
