1-16-12: A Conversation with Julian Bond
This conversation originally aired April 12, 2010.
In April 2010, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder joined dozens of alumni of the civil-rights marches of the 1960s at a reunion in Raleigh, North Carolina to mark a half century after the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee. One of the founders, then a college sophomore, was Julian Bond. Bond went on to be a leader of the civil rights movement, a Georgia State legislator, and chair of the NAACP. Bond spoke in Baltimore just before the reunion, and Sheilah spoke him shortly before he delivered his speech.
