Tributes to NAACP Chair Julian Bond Organized by Professor Crosby

Emilye Crosby helped organize tributes for Julian Bond at the September meeting of the Association for the Study of Afro-American Life and History (ASALH) and the upcoming April meeting of the Organization of American Historians (OAH). Bond, who was a mentor and friend to Crosby, was a founding member of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, Chair emeritus of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, and a well-known advocate for civil and human rights. He spoke at Geneseo in 1968 and gave the Wadsworth lecture in Fall 2007.
