John F. Kennedy with Abraham Bolden, the first black Secret Service agent assigned to the Presidential Protective Division, appointed by JFK in 1961. Kennedy once introduced him as "the Jackie Robinson of the Secret Service," a comment which brought tears to Bolden's eyes.
Clint Hill was Jackie Kennedy's Secret Service agent. He climbed onto the back of the Presidential limousine as it sped towards Parkland Memorial Hospital on November 22, 1963. He remained with her for one year after the assassination.
I am so not a Kennedy person, but my friend Dawn told me I had to read it and I finally did. It was phenomenal. I was born in 1981 so I have only ever heard generic text book things about the Kennedy's and the assassination. This book was so well written, however, that I felt like I was there. The chapter on the aftermath of the assassination literally made me cry. I highly, highly recommend this book!!
