Julian Bond To Speak April 2 On Young Leadership In 1960s

March 27, 2002-- Veteran civil rights activist Julian Bond will discuss young leadership during the tumultuous 1960s as part of the Explorations in Black Leadership series.

Bond, a professor of history at the University of Virginia, will speak on "What We Did: Young Leadership in the 1960s" at 7 p.m. April 2 in the Rotunda Dome Room.

"This is an exciting story of leadership and accomplishment by youngsters — great things accomplished, most of them little noticed at the time and little noticed now — and I think it demonstrates what the possibilities for leadership are," he said.

Bond was a founding member of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee and is chairman of the board of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.

The series is presented by the Institute for Public History, the Darden Graduate School of Business Administration and the Center for Religion and Democracy.
