When Pete Souza left the White House in 2017, he didn’t know what it meant to “throw shade” — but he started doing it almost immediately on his personal Instagram account, posting his photographs from the Obama years with captions that vividly define the contrast between the Obama White House and President Trump’s administration. Media organizations caught on and couldn’t stop talking about Souza’s posts, with New York magazine calling them “a master class in shade,” CNN describing them as “a silent, social media, shade-throwing protest told in visuals,” and Politico naming him “King of Instagram Shade.” Souza’s following on Instagram has since grown to nearly two million people.

Souza’s new book, Shade: A Tale of Two Presidents, is a portrait in contrasts, telling the tale of two presidencies through a series of powerful visual juxtapositions — with Souza’s unforgettable images of President Obama delivering new power and meaning when framed by tweets, headlines, quotes, and other material from the first 500 days of the Trump administration. In a visual presentation and talk based on his new book, Souza reminds us of the highest American values we share, giving us the courage to stand up and speak out for what we believe in.

Price includes a copy of Souza’s Shade: A Tale of Two Presidents. Books distributed at event.
