The Echo from Dealey Plaza: 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

New York: Harmony Books, 2008.

First edition. Signed by Abraham Bolden on the half title with a warm, lengthy inscription to the former owner, dated April 26, 2010. [x], 306 pp. Bound in publisher's cloth and boards, spine lettered in silver. Fine in Fine dust jacket.

The autobiography of the first Black Secret Service agent on the White House detail, who faced a lot of racism and vitriol from other agents during his time in JFK's White House. After helping to foil a plot against President Kennedy's life in Chicago in October 1963, mere weeks before the Dallas assassination, Bolden was forced into silence about the events in Chicago (which remain completely unknown and obscure even to most historians of the era) and eventually railroaded into jail on trumped-up charges. In 2022 he was officially pardoned by President Biden.

A rare signature from one of the unsung heroes of the Kennedy assassination milieu. Item #140945289
