This week, Travel Today with Peter Greenberg comes to you from the City of Lights: Paris, France, and more specifically, from the newly-renovated Hotel Plaza Athénée. The Hotel Plaza Athénée opened in 1913, and has seen a lot of Parisian history in more than 100 years. In 2010, the property was awarded Palace distinction—one of only five hotels in Paris to share that honor.
Joining Peter this week are Laurant Poncelet, concierge at the Hotel Plaza Athénée, to talk truffles and baby lions (all in a day’s works as a concierge); Valerie Wilson, legendary travel agent, to share the best reason to start your own business; and Leigh Gallagher of Fortune Magazine, to discuss why the suburbs are dying.
All this and more, on this episode of Travel Today with Peter Greenberg from Hotel Plaza Athénée.
This episode will discuss the movie “No Good Deed” starring Taraji P. Henson and Idris Elba and its impact on the negative portrayal of women as well as the negative image of African American women. The episode will discuss some of the subliminal messages that this movie portrays concerning women and the choices they make concerning being mothers vs. pursuing careers, staying at home vs. working, single parenting and the decision to get a divorce.
Your host, Bob Kirkconnell is thrilled that we are able to have JFK Secret Service Agent Abaham Bolden on the program again! Bob will introduce him and then Abraham will share some of his experiences and insights. Questions from Bob and callers will follow.
Abraham was the first African American Secret Service Agent on the Presidential detail. He joined the JFK detail in 1961. After the assassination, he disclosed a Chicago plot to assassinate JFK and also racism, and serious security short comings in the Secret Service. What happened to him is the subject of this show and we are honored to have Abraham on the program! Listeners are encouraged do some research ahead of time. Below is a review of his book: The Echo From Dealey Plaza.
From Publishers Weekly
Conspiracy theories haunt the Kennedy assassination; Bolden offers a new one, concerning discrimination and evidence suppression. Becoming, in JFK's words, the Jackie Robinson of the Secret Service, Bolden joined the White House detail in 1961. Already beset by racism (he once found a noose suspended over his desk), his idealism is further shattered by the drinking and carousing of other agents. Soon after the assassination, he receives orders that hint at an effort to withhold, or at least to the color, the truth. He discovers that evidence is being kept from the Warren Commission and when he takes action, finds himself charged with conspiracy to sell a secret government file and sentenced to six years in prison, where both solitary confinement and the psychiatric ward await. That there was a conspiracy to silence him seems unarguable, but Bolden's prose is flat; so is his dialogue. This story is more enthralling than Bolden's telling of it, but the reader who sticks with it will enter a world of duplicitous charges and disappearing documents fit for a movie thriller...
