[edit] BiographyAbraham Bolden grew up in East St. Louis, Illinois.[1] After receiving a degree in music from Lincoln University of Missouri,[2] he began his professional career as an Illinois state trooper. He joined the Secret Service in 1961 and later that year he became the first African American member of the Secret Service's Presidential Protective Division after being appointed by President John F. Kennedy.[3] According to Bolden, Kennedy personally invited him to join the detail when the two met at an event in Chicago in April.[4] He worked in the dual capacities of guarding the President and investigating counterfeiting.[5]

In the wake of the 1963 John F. Kennedy assassination, Bolden contacted the Warren Commission, hoping to testify about an alleged assassination plot in Chicago two weeks before Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas. He traveled to Washington but before he could testify, Bolden was returned to Chicago. There he was arrested on May 20, 1964 on federal charges that he had solicited a bribe from a counterfeiting ring that he had helped break.[6] He was accused of seeking $50,000 in exchange for a secret file on the investigation.[7] He maintained his innocence, asserting that he had been framed because he planned to expose dereliction among the agents assigned to guard Kennedy in front of the Commission. The Secret Service denied Bolden's claims. Bolden's first jury deadlocked 11-1 in favor of conviction, at which time presiding judge Joseph Sam Perry issued an Allen charge in which he expressed his belief that Bolden was guilty but that the jury was free to disregard his opinion. The jury remained deadlocked and Perry declared a mistrial on July 11, 1964. In his retrial Bolden was convicted and Judge Perry sentenced him to six years in prison.[3] Bolden appealed his conviction to the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, based in part on Perry's Allen charge in the first trial. Bolden claimed that the charge was evidence that Perry was not impartial and that his failure to recuse himself denied Bolden a fair trial. The Appeals Court disagreed and upheld Bolden's conviction in a decision issued December 29, 1965.[8]

Following his release from prison, Bolden worked as a quality control supervisor in the automotive industry until his retirement in 2001.[9]

In 2008, Bolden published his memoir, 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.

[edit] Portrayals in fictionAbraham Bolden appears in the 2011 television miniseries The Kennedys. He is depicted joining the President's protective detail and later President Kennedy turns to him as a sounding board during the crisis surrounding the 1962 desegregation of the University of Mississippi. Bolden is portrayed by Rothaford Gray.

Blaine is getting desperate now---almost humorous if it wasn't pathetic (more about the WC reports---CE1025---that Blaine says came out in 1992 and we are avoiding...or is that just ME he means?)

Hey, ole Jer: NO ONE IS IGNORING THOSE REPORTS YOU MISTAKENLY THOUGHT ONLY CAME OUT IN 1992 in your book. I, along with hundreds, if not thousands, of other authors and researchers have dealt with them, at length, since they first appeared in The Warren Report and the 26 accompanying volumes of hearings and September 1964 (the massive best-sellers The Warren Report, The Day Kennedy Was Shot, and The Death of a President", to name just a few...oh, yes: and my own book "Survivor's Guilt: The Secret Service & The Failure To Protect The President").

Here's what Jerry says in his latest blog (no one is fooled: the timing coincides with the release of yet more videos containing the audio that debunks the claims he is attempting to make [see below***]):

"For those who have not read the Warren Report, or chose to simply ignore it [hahaha---a not-so-subtle and erroneous "dig" at myself, no doubt], I have posted below statements submitted by Special Agent in Charge Jerry Behn, ASAIC Floyd Boring, ATSAIC Emory Roberts, SA Jack Ready and SAIC Clinton J. Hill regarding presidential requests... I paraphrased the statements in the book, but here are the originals submitted to the Warren Commission: [CE 1025]"

Always remember: these reports are AFTER-THE-FACT CYA crapola, written by men with blood on their hands. Blaine and his colleagues failed to prevent the murder of JFK and, by his own admission, Blaine damn near killed yet another President, Lyndon Johnson. This admission reminds one of the tales O.J. Simpson wrote in his tell-all confessional "If I Did It." I always said that Blaine should have titled his book "We Let Them Do It...Now it's Time To Profit From Our Errors Which We Now Blame On JFK."

The TRUE heroes of the Secret Service are the many men and women who came AFTER 11/22/63 (as well as quite a few beforehand): not only the modern Secret Service, but especially the heroes of 3/30/81---SAIC Jerry Parr...ATSAIC Ray Shaddick...SA Tim McCarthy...

ASAIC Robert DeProspero, Parr's deputy who eventually went on to replace him as Reagan's #1 agent, is the greatest protection agent the Service has ever had---here is what he had to say about my work: "Vince,I have been watching your work for many months. Am impressed with your research, accuracy and willingness to "tell it like it is". [e-mail to Vince Palamara 4/10/11] Now THERE is a man (my personal hero)the Secret Service can be very proud of. In my opinion, he towers above any and all JFK-era agents, but I digress.

I have been watching your work for many months. Am impressed with your research, accuracy and willingness to "tell it like it is".

In retrospect, should have talked to you instead of Del.

This book was written to counter Vince Palamara's work: epic FAIL

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful:
1.0 out of 5 stars This book was written to counter Vince Palamara's work: epic FAIL, October 31, 2010
By r-devic-saint (Pittsburgh, PA) - See all my reviewsThis review is from: The Kennedy Detail: JFK's Secret Service Agents Break Their Silence (Hardcover)
Researcher Vince Palamara interviewed and corresponded with many former agents, including Gerald Blaine. They ALL told him that JFK never interfered with their actions at all and DID NOT order the agents off his limousine. Blaine, in a panic because the truth hurts, hastily wrote this book as a result. Notice how defensive it is in tone and how Blaine goes on and on about the fraudulent notion that President Kennedy ordered the agents off his limo on 11/18/63, which somehow became a standing order to be applied to the upcoming Dallas trip...false! SAIC Gerald Behn, ASAIC Floyd Boring, ATSAIC Art Godfrey, GERALD BLAINE, and many other former agents and non-agency personnel debunked this years before this book was written. What's more, Blaine, without having the courage to name Palamara (pages 359-360), seeks to denigrate his massively researched work via the alleged misidentification of the agent who was recalled at Love if THAT alone overrides all the damning evidence of Blaine's lies about JFK throughout the work. Mr. Blaine, with all due respect, you should be ashamed of yourself for this book. You know the real story, as does Palamara and many of your colleagues. The agents who protected President Reagan on 3/30/81 put your men to shame. Irony: you have made major amounts of money on this case, much more than 99 percent of the critical research community you seek to denigrate. No one is buying it, but they sure are BUYING it...guess huge profits are nice, huh?

ANOTHER great review of "The Kennedy Detail"

1.0 out of 5 stars Lame, April 8, 2011
Keith D. Bertrand (Haslett, Michigan United States) - See all my reviews
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Kennedy Detail: JFK's Secret Service Agents Break Their Silence (Hardcover)
Lame. This is the most pragmatic word that I can think up to describe this book. At best, it is a book that is superficial, lacking in details and substance, and is an attempt by the author to rewrite history the way he wishes it should be remembered. He makes up quotes (how did you know what two people were saying when you were not there?), he leaves out important details and facts that are now supportable by known truths because it makes him and the Secret Service look better. He complains about how hard and under paid he and other agents were (if he was why not leave?).

Overall, this book represents a poor excuse on what should have been a definitive historical point in American history. Instead, the author attempts to brush aside the facts and details and give his own subjective opinion about people, events, and actual occurrences. Read Ron Kessler's book, "Inside The Secret Service," for a more authoritative account of the Secret Service. Mr. Blaine should hang his head in shame and, moreover, the publisher should list this book as fiction.
