Julian Bond on Race in America

Julian Bond (University of Virginia) has been at the cutting edge of social change since he was a college student leading sit-in demonstrations in Atlanta in 1960. The civil rights leader faced jail for his activism and helped create the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee. Julian Bond, who spent 20 years as a Georgia lawmaker, is now a writer and college lecturer and the chair of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. Bond, whose grandfather was born into slavery, candidly talks about race in America fifty years after the Brown v. Board… decision by the U.S Supreme Court.
