Julian Bond and Martin Luther King Jr. voting

I join the world in expressing my heartfelt condolences to Julian Bond’s entire family. Our nation has lost an extraordinary champion for freedom and justice. As one of my father’s most revered students, he was a prominent fighter for social justice who worked alongside Dr. King and many others doing the never-ending…yet necessary work to move our country forward. Our world is immeasurably better because of his contributions and unyielding commitment to the struggle and pursuit for equality. Bond’s legacy is overwhelming in depth and scope, as his brilliance and passion enriched and improved all of our lives for the better. We have lost not just one of our boldest advocates for civil rights and justice for all…but a giant for humanity.
