Hero of the Week Award: November 4, Julian Bond

4 Nov

Hero of the Week

This week’s HWA was a great pleasure to compose.  Julian Bond has been a long time personal hero of mine, and he is one of the most widely recognized civil rights leaders in the world.  He served as Chairman of the NAACP from 1998 to 2010.  Bond was also the first President of the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). This past week, Bond created a video for marriage equality, thus earning him this week’s HWA.

The video is one of a series of videos produced by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC).  Click here to see Julian Bond’s video.  Kudos to Bond for continuing to serve as a pioneer for civil rights for all.
