"Justice and equality was the mission that spanned his life. Julian Bond helped change this country for the better. And what better way to be remembered than that."--President Barack Obama

No one in the United States did more to advance the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. than Julian Bond. Race Man--a collection of his speeches, articles, interviews, and letters--constitutes an unrivaled history of the life and times of one of America's most trusted freedom fighters, offering unfiltered access to his prophetic voice on a wide variety of social issues, including police brutality, abortion, and same-sex marriage. A man who broke race barriers and set precedents throughout his life in politics; co-founder of the Southern Poverty Law Center and long-time chair of the NAACP; Julian Bond was a leader and a visionary who built bridges between the black civil rights movement and other freedom movements--especially for LGBTQ and women's rights. As we enter the third decade of the twenty-first century, there is no better time to return to Bond's works and words, many of them published here for the first time.

"Julian Bond's Race Man anthology offers a uniquely perceptive and cogent overview of the African-American freedom struggle during its heyday in the 1960s and the perilous decades that have followed."--Clayborne Carson, Director, The Martin Luther King Jr Research and Education Institute, Stanford University
