Over the course of his long career, Bond has been a leader in advocating for social change, from his work as a founding member of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee in the 1960s to his service as chair of the board of the NAACP from 1998 to 2010.

In this video, Bond speaks with students, faculty, and community members about how he first became involved in the civil rights movement, what activism means to him, and the role of art in social change.
