A leader in the Civil Rights Movement, Julian Bond was among the founders of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, a leader of the 1963 March on Washington, and a Georgia legislator for twenty years. Now in his seventies, Bond recalls the experience of growing up in the segregated south, where his parents' belief in hard work and education lifted the family out of what he describes as an apartheid system. An erudite, well-spoken man, audiences visit his classroom at the University of Virginia where he shares with a new generation the turbulent years of the Civil Rights Movement. Julian Bond's recollections chronicle several turbulent decades of American history, as society was evolving to allow more opportunity to African Americans. An essential documentary for African American Studies, American History, and Sociology courses.
