Title:Interview with Julian Bond, September 14, 1997
Date:1997 Sept. 14

Interview with Julian Bond, September 14, 1997 conducted by Catherine Fosl.

Julian Bond is an African American politician, a leading social activist in the Civil Rights Movement, a professor, a writer, an original founder of SNCC, the first president of the Southern Poverty Law Center, and the current chairman of the NAACP. In this interview, Bond begins by discussing his initial impressions of both Bradens and their brainchild SCEF, perceptions that were often laced with the "taint" of Communism. He also outlines the evolution of Anne's relationship with SNCC both as an individual and through SCEF. Perhaps more particularly, Bond highlights Anne's role as a vital source of media connections for SNCC, and the ways in which these connections helped establish its political presence.
