The list of major events in the life of civil rights leader and activist Julian Bond is a long one.
Bond was the co-founder of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee. He was a member of the Georgia General Assembly, the first African-American to be nominated for a major party vice presidential candidacy and chairman of the NAACP ─ and that's just for starters.
Bond, 75, died over the weekend in Fort Walton Beach, Florida. He is survived by his wife, Pamela Horowitz, and five children, one of which includes Atlanta Councilman Michael Julian Bond.
