Still dogged by allegations of drug use, Bond resigned from the Georgia Senate the following year. And Julian came out and campaigned for me, so I had a lot of personal contact with him and with John Lewis at that time. That we have so many people —white, black, green, brown, yellow — who can’t make a decent living; they’re left behind. They had five children: Phyllis Jane Bond-McMillan, Horace Mann Bond II, Michael Julian Bond (an Atlanta City Councilman), Jeffrey Alvin Bond and Julia Louise Bond. And in your book, you have a very compelling description of that, and it really goes to a great deal of courage. You’re a professor of religion, right? So set the stage, the origin of SNCC. But Julian Bond had the foresight to say, don’t make the poor people the ones that have to pay the price. He publicly stated his support for same-sex marriage. “Martin Luther King, Jr. did say he got a lot of his inspiration, and he was kept in check by these young people in SNCC,” says the Truthdig editor in chief. Bond refused, saying the drug test was akin to McCarthyism and trivializes the issue of drugs. ML: April 4, 1967, is when he made his big speech at Riverside. But I say in my foreword that he was a race man in the mold of Thurgood Marshall, and quote, that Marshall ”became what blacks of the 1930s admiringly called ‘a race man’: a black man whose major work was to advance the interests of his race.” And so, and the earlier incarnation of that, of course, would be W.E.B. You’ll hardly ever see any reference to Paul Robeson. Sealed…. Bond also moved on to teach at Harvard, Drexel, Williams, and the University of Pennsylvania. “Julian Bond helped change this country for the better. And again, it just goes way back to 1962. And SNCC — I just, reading this book, it’s really a tribute to SNCC as much as it’s a tribute to Julian Bond, or the movement he came out of. And here you had in the South, you had a black and white Baptist movement. Read this book, “Race Man,” to learn more about somebody I’m promoting as a role model, Julian Bond. And basically, Michael, I guess you edited the book and put it together, right? [20] A three-judge panel on the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia ruled in a 2–1 decision that the Georgia House had not violated any of Bond's constitutional rights. But anyway–, PH: That was before the election. Former Governor Ellis Arnall polled more than fifty thousand votes as a write-in candidate, a factor which led to the impasse. So on that note, it can be done. ML: Oh, Morehouse is in Atlanta. He served until 1979, remaining a board member and president emeritus for the rest of his life. So I just want to get across that since this is Black History Month that we’re participating in, we’re not talking — you know, the South has been — you know, somebody said we have the new South — it’s the old South plus air conditioning, or something. And Julian was strong on that. Carol Moseley-Braun, U.S. And the link to Martin Luther King’s coming out against the war, which really took great courage, and he was attacked for it. ML: Yeah, Bond was the director of communications for SNCC. And also, as Julian pointed out at that time, in that statement a disproportionate number of black people were going into, being drafted into the military. Michael G. Long and Pamela Horowitz: Julian Bond Was a Radical Long Before MLK By Editor June 4, 2020 June 4, 2020 A new book shows how the activist's positions on issues like the Vietnam War and environmental justice helped move civil rights leaders left. But what I came away from, and one of the pictures sort of summarized it for me. And it is interesting because I found it one of the most fascinating, because I learned so much from it. I mean, the horror that they faced on a daily basis was really the seed of that Voting Rights Act of 1965. ML: Yeah, if you want to talk about that, Pam knows a lot about Julian’s background. PH: Well, he was the president of the center at the time, and a lot of the donors were Jewish, and so it did create a lot of controversy within that donor group, for years. RS: So let me — I want to move the pace a little bit here, because there’s a lot in this book, and it’s really food for thought. Interestingly enough, the senator from Georgia was Richard Russell. And he wasn’t a big fan, he said openly, about being on the front line of the movement; he felt much more comfortable behind a typewriter. RS: Yeah, and I do want to bring up his own background, because he had other options. ML: Robert, what’s interesting about the book is that it ends with Doug Brinkley’s afterword, a great historian. And so they knew what they were up against when SNCC took off, and when other civil rights events took off. RS: Let me just throw in another controversial concern he had, had to do with this ”population bomb” image of Ehrlich and so forth. Is there any justification?” And the same Sen. Russell from Georgia says, “None that I know of.” And then Lyndon Johnson says, “But we can’t not go, because Goldwater, who I’m running against, is going to tear me apart.”. It’s a very fast read, but it’s a great glimpse at history, this really important history. Anyway, he didn’t get a happy reception. And even, I wrote something about it, even when I dragged him out to the Perry Homes project. And they didn’t seat him, obviously, because he supported SNCC’s statement against the war. ML: Yes, right. And both John Lewis and Julian Bond decide that they have to speak out on the war. Montes-Bradley, Eduardo. You were in Montgomery, and — yeah. I mean, one of the depressing things about this book — I’ll give the depressing part at the end — is right with us now, is the failure to have the economic advances that would make the civil rights technically legal advances more meaningful. Speaking with Michael G. Long, the editor of Bond’s collected essays “Race Man: Selected Works,” and Pamela Horowitz, an SPLC attorney and the black leader’s widow, Scheer discusses Bond’s long career and how, at crucial moments, he staked radical positions that moved other civil rights leaders left. But let me just say, by coincidence, I happened to go through the South in 1960. RS: In your book it says unanimously. And so Bond took great umbrage at that, and considered Jimmy Carter just a bald-faced liar. [12] With Morris Dees, Bond helped found the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a public-interest law firm based in Montgomery, Alabama. “Justice and equality was the mission that spanned his life – from his leadership of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, to his founding role with the Southern Poverty Law Center, to his pioneering service in the Georgia legislature and his steady hand at the helm of the NAACP.”. He came from an educated family, he could have traveled; he was a very articulate, very smart fellow. The, you know, so-called respectable whites. And so when he thought of the environment movement in 1970, he thought mostly of pollution and litter control, and it obviously evolved into something else, and Bond supported that. And in this case, two people who are very interesting in their own right: Michael G. Long, who is a professor of religious studies at Elizabethtown College in Pennsylvania, a major expert on a whole range of subjects involving civil rights, gay, black, gender and everything — I’m not going to go through his whole list. From 1998 to 2010, he was chairman of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). And so part of his responsibility was to go out into the field and report on what SNCC was doing in its grassroots efforts across the South. Bond was an outspoken supporter of the rights of gays and lesbians.
