Echo from Dealey Plaza by Abraham Bolden
Book DescriptionA gripping and unforgettable true story of bravery and patriotism in the face of bitter hatred. Abraham Bolden was a young African American Secret Service agent in Chicago when he was asked by John F. Kennedy himself to join the White House Secret Service detail. For Bolden, it was a dream come true and an encouraging sign of the charismatic president s vision for a new America. But the dream quickly turned sour. Bolden found himself regularly subjected to open hostility and blatant racism, and he was appalled by the White House team s irresponsible approach to security. In the wake of JFK s assassination, Bolden sought to expose the agency s negligence, only to find himself the victim of a sinister conspiracy. "The Echo from Dealey Plaza "is the story of the terrible price paid by one man for his commitment to truth and justice."
