Contra Costa College (CCC) and Single Stop Program are hosting An Evening with Julian Bond, accompanied by members of the Freedom Singers on Friday, April 12 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the college’s John & Jean Knox Center for the Performing Arts, 2600 Mission Bell Drive in San Pablo.

Bond has played an important role in fighting for civil and human rights for over 50 years. A leader of the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s, he is one of the original student leaders that established the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) and later chaired the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).
Bond was the highly profiled president of the Southern Poverty Law Center and is known for his contributions to the global documentary, “Eyes on the Prize.”
