Julian Bond, z'l.

The great civil rights leader Julian Bond passed away today.

We are all indebted to him for his service in the struggle for equal rights and justice as a young activist, as an elected official, as the chair of the NAACP, and as the first president of the Southern Poverty Law Center.

I had the opportunity to photograph Mr. Bond for Operation Understanding DC in April 2004.

He will be missed.

May his memory - and his work - always be for a blessing.
Julian Bond
