My guest today is a pivotal part of American history... unfortunately America didn't want you to know about it and still doesn't. As we get closer to November 22, which will mark the 50th Anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, Always remember the story of the Real Bodyguard; the first black agent assigned to the White House detail, selected by Kennedy himself, Abraham Bolden.

He is also the author of "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." This is the hottest book I have read in a long time.

Bolden went head-long into his assignement to protect the life of the President that he so admired, that when he discovered internal behaviors within the Secret Service itself that compromised the safety of the President, he reported his findings to his superiors and afterwards he was removed from Kennedy's detail just before the fateful date, and became targeted unjustly.

Find out why by listening to this interview, and help clear his name. Feel free to leave a comment in the section below, especially if you're on Facebook.
