014 BUT NOT WITH SILVER

A story of divine fate and segregation within the Secret Service.

Abraham Bolden was the first black Secret Service agent on the White House detail. Serving under John F. Kennedy, Bolden cracked counterfeiting cases and provided security for the President. However, the segregated 60s led Bolden from the White House to prison. In this story, EIS finds Bolden inside his Chicago home as he recounts his experiences of racial tension and why he considers himself a tool of fate.

ABOUT

Everything is Stories

EVERYTHING IS STORIES

An ongoing audio survey of individuals who have experienced transcendence and/or power of the will. No story will be considered too troubled, no atmosphere too strange.

Needed: tales from the underground, the underdog, the outlaw, and the outcast. Genuine characters of all kinds welcome.

Everything is Stories explores unconventional narratives of the past and present to preserve the eccentric, the authentic, and the personal.

Produced by Garrett Crowe, Mike Martinez, and Tyler Wray.
