One thought on “Julian Bond, 1940-2015

  1. Saw an interview with him on the LHN for the anniversary of the Civil Rights legislation signing at the LBJ library. He spoke of his first time being arrested and being thrown in the “paddy wagon” which struck me as ironic, being that he is a civil right activist and using deaparaging comments. The other thing hat was interesting was he commented how he and Dr. king were not really friends or friendly. How Dr. King had been his professor at Moorehead College and he did not see him as a contemporary until he was assasinated. Also he worried that everything in the way of progress would have stopped. He was very engaging and honest in the interview and really showed the human side of the movement instead of just talking about the aura of the achievements.
