by Julian Bond
How lucky were the students at Harvard and other American universities who were able to take a class with Julian Bond. Along with being a famed civil rights activist, author, chairman of the NAACP, and Georgia state representative and senator, Bond (1940-2015) was a very popular and charismatic professor whose classes took students into the heart of monumental events that he witnessed and participated in. Now his lectures have been published so that everyone can partake of the wisdom that he shared. Bond pays tribute to the thousands of young, poor, often female protestors and grassroots leaders. His teachings provide a toolkit for today's activists in the era of Black Lives Matter.
