       The author, James L. Felder, is a native South Carolinian.  Having grown up in Sumter, SC, he has lived and worked in Atlanta, GA; New York City, Chicago, IL and Washington, DC.

       Following the completion of his undergraduate studies at Clark College in Atlanta, GA, he spent two years in the United States Army serving with the Honor Guard Ceremonial Unit in the Nation's capital.  After his tour of duty with the Army, he matriculated at Howard University School of Law completing his studies in June 1967, and returned to South Carolina.

       His selection to serve with the Honor Guard represented only the tenth black American to serve with this elite unit.  The first nine preceded him by several months.

       Felder is a former member of the South Carolina House of Representatives (1970-72) and one of three blacks who served in the General Assembly since Reconstruction.

       Felder is a member of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity.  He has been a member for 60 years and has served in various leadership roles.  

       The author has written three books:  (1)  I Buried John F. Kennedy, (2)  Civil Rights in South Carolina, (3) The Making of an AME Bishop and the latest book The Life and Times of Luns C. Richardson.   

       Jim Felder resides in Columbia, South Carolina, where he continues to write and remains active in the community.  He has two children, Jimmy and Adrienne, a son-in-law, Lancelot, and two grandchildren, Lancelot II and Sean.
