Book Review by Gary Revel
Secret Service agent-Abraham Bolden, the first African-American agent to be assigned to protect a President of the United States found protocol violations in the Secret Service protection of JFK in Dallas on November 22, 1963. He had worked in presidential protection teams himself and had helped discover an assassination plot in Chicago only weeks before that dismal day in Dallas.
He learned that someone on the Grassy Knoll had flashed a Secret Service ID card a short time before JFK’s brain exploded from a bullet fired from the area. All Secret Service agents received new ID cards shortly afterward. Interestingly enough no agent had any reason to be on the grassy knoll before that shot and officially no agent was there.
The name of Lee Harvey Oswald had come up when he helped prevent the assassination attempt in Chicago. This fact and the protocol problems in Dallas put together bothered Abraham and he started asking questions. Then others started asking him questions and soon he had been framed and sent to prison.
Abraham is no longer in prison and he has written a book about his experiences. The title is “The Echo from Dealey Plaza” and it is the true story of the first African American on the White House Secret Service detail and his quest for justice after the assassination of JFK.
