Julian Bond (1940-2015) Presente!

Julian Bond
Julian Bond, Mississippi, 1963. By Harvey Richards.
We are deeply saddened at the passing of long time activist, professor, politician, and writer Julian Bond on August 15, 2015. 

Bond's wit, wisdom, and powerful presence will be sorely missed. As Teaching for Change board member Timothy Jenkins said, "Julian's footprints offer a mighty challenge for those youngsters who would come after him headed in the same direction." 

Read about Julian Bond's life of activism and a message from his family about how to celebrate his life on August 22 here.
