|Statement from the Southern Poverty Law Center sums up my feelings on this great man and this great loss:|
We've lost a champion. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of legendary civil rights activist Julian Bond, SPLC's first president. He was 75 years old and died last evening, August 15, in Fort Walton Beach, Florida.
Not only has the country lost a hero today, we've lost a great friend.
RIP Julian Bond; Thank You for Your Courage, Leadership for Justice and Equality
