Civil rights activist, Julian Bond, died Saturday night at the age of 75. A constant fighter for justice, and long-time chairman of the NAACP, Bond remained in service to humanity into his golden years. The Southern Poverty Law Center announced Bond’s passing:

“With Julian’s passing, the country has lost one of its most passionate and eloquent voices for the cause of justice. He advocated not just for African Americans, but for every group, indeed every person subject to oppression and discrimination, because he recognized the common humanity in us all.”
