|Date:||2003 May 14|
Encyclopedia article about Julian Bond who has been a protester, politician, scholar, and lecturer and committed to civil rights, economic justice, and peace since the 1950s. Bond played a significant role in the civil rights movement and continued his battle to ensure equality for all Americans during his twenty-year tenure in the Georgia legislature. Bond attended Morehouse College in Atlanta where he helped organize the student organization the Committee on Appeal for Human Rights and later the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). Bond was elected to the Georgia Legislature in 1965 but his outspoken objection to the Vietnam War (1964-1973) prompted the legislature to deny Bond his seat, a decision eventually overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court.
