About the Event

On the 50th anniversary of Watergate, Adam Henig will share the true story of Frank Wills, the night watchman at the Watergate Office Building in Washington D.C. On the morning of June 17, 1972, Wills, a twenty-four-year-old security guard, was on duty when he detected a break-in and reported it to the police. The botched burglary ignited a national political scandal, resulting in the resignation of President Richard Nixon.

The only African American identified with the Watergate affair, Frank Wills enjoyed a brief moment in the limelight, but was unable to cope with his newfound fame, living the remainder of his life in obscurity and poverty. Through exhaustive research and numerous interviews, the story of America's most famous night watchman finally has been told.

Admission is free. 

Sponsor: CCJCC and Congregation B'nai Shalom in partnership with Jewish Book Council.
