Abraham Bolden Speaks in Newburgh


Abraham Bolden, the first black Secret Service agent spoke about his new book "The Echo from Dealey Plaza" at the Newburgh Free Library last week. Appointed to the White House detail by JFK himself, Bolden soon found himself in a world of hostility and blatant racism culminating in his prosecution on trumped up charges when he tried to contact the Warren Commission to assist in their investigation. In a related story the Chicago Tribune has verified Bolden's version of events. See: http://www.chicagotribune.com/features/booksmags/chi-echobw29mar29,1,5617994.story
