Julian Bond, Civil Rights Leader and Former NAACP Chairman, Dead at 75

snip:

"Julian Bond, a longtime civil rights activist and former board chairman of the NAACP, has died. He was 75.

Bond died Saturday night in Fort Walton Beach, Florida after a brief illness, according to a statement from the Southern Poverty Law Center, in which Bond served as the group’s first president.

The NAACP also remembered Bond in a tweet posted early Sunday morning. “The NAACP mourns the passing of Chairman Julian Bond, civil rights titan and our brother. May he rest in eternal peace,” the group tweeted.

Several Hollywood personalities also remembered Bond on Twitter including “The Wire” star Wendell Pierce, who called him a “hero” and late-night host Stephen Colbert, who described Bond as “A Great Man.”

Born in 1940 in Nashville, Tennessee, Bond attended Morehouse College and helped found the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee. He was on the front lines of the 1960s protests that led to the nation’s civil rights laws."
