On Saturday, August 15, 2015, Julian Bond, former NAACP Chairman and civil rights leader, passed away.  Julian Bond delivered the 2nd Eugene J. McCarthy Lecture on October 29, 2008. We have lost a champion of equal rights, who in his lifetime inspired many individuals to stand up against injustice and discrimination. Today, the McCarthy Center honors him by remembering the speech he delivered at the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University.
