rhyannonrenee 60th anniversary of the murder of Emmett Till. He was 14 years old. All-white jury found his murderer not guilty. We've come a long way, but still so far to go.

zoostation5000 I know it has been nearly 2 weeks since Julian Bond died… but I was just reading a great piece on his life, and stumbled upon this photo… taken in 1963 by Richard Avedon. What an amazing life he led. He helped form the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee in 1960. Later, he attended Morehouse College, and was one of 6 students who took the one and only class ever taught by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr… a philosophy class. After that, he continued as a formidable civil rights activist in his own right... running successful lunchroom sit-ins in Atlanta, and in 1968, he became the first African American to be nominated for Vice President of the United States. As I mentioned on Facebook after he passed away, I was fortunate to get to know Mr. Bond a little. Believe it or not, we took a comedy writing class together back when I lived in Atlanta (oh yeah, he was also an early host of "Saturday Night Live"). Tremendous respect to the accomplishments and legacy of Julian Bond. He was quite a force. #julianbond #sncc #civilrights #avedon #naacp #selma50 #morehouse #mlk #snl #southernpovertylawcenter #morehousecollege #martinlutherkingjr 1w
