Julian Bond: Reflections from the Frontlines of the Civil Rights Movement
Sunday noon, Nau Auditorium
2012. USA. 32 min. Director: Eduardo Montes-Bradley. Featuring: Julian Bond.
As Julian Bond traces his roots back to slavery, the audience is confronted with a unique opportunity to observe the 20th century through the eyes of one of its key witnesses. Now in his seventies, the veteran Civil Rights leader recounts his days as a child in the segregated South, growing up in a home frequently visited by intellectuals like Paul Robeson and Langston Hughes. In an intimate conversation with director Montes-Bradley, Bond examines his role in the Civil Rights movement, his opposition to the war in Vietnam, his views on religion, and the struggle to secure a seat in Georgia’s legislature.
