Julian Bond, a civil rights activist and longtime board chairman of the NAACP, died last week in Ft. Walton Beach, Florida, after an undisclosed brief illness.

Bond was one of the well recognized symbols and icons of the 1960s civil rights movement. As a Morehouse College student, Bond helped found the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee on April 17, 1960; and traveled throughout Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, and Arkansas from 1961 – 1966 helping to organize civil rights and voter registration drives.
