R.I.P. Activist Julian Bond

Julian Bond, Former N.A.A.C.P. Chairman and Civil Rights Leader, Dies at 75

Julian Bond, a charismatic figure of the 1960s civil rights movement, a lightning rod of the anti-Vietnam War campaign and a lifelong champion of equal rights for minorities, notably as chairman of the N.A.A.C.P., died on Saturday night in Fort Walton Beach, Fla. He was 75.

Locked away in a forgotten vault somewhere is the funniest Q&A session he ever did, in the 1970s on the Stanley Siegel Show, out of WABC-TV Channel 7 in NYC.

He did good.

He will be missed.

Rest in peace.
