Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This latest addition to the "African American Biographies" series covers the contributions and life of civil rights activist and chairman of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, Julian Bond. Beginning with his birth into a family of educators, Julian's life unfolds for the reader. Julian was influenced by his parents and the prominent people who visited the Bond home, such as W. E. B. DuBois. Julian's politics and philosophies began to form and evolve through his adolescence and young adulthood. He founded the Committee on Appeal for Human Rights while he was in college. The segregated South worked as a constant catalyst for Julian and his causes. Bond's contributions to his state of Georgia grew when he was elected to the House of Representatives. Bond also has the distinction of being the first African American to be nominated for Vice President of the United States. Unfortunately, he was too young to hold this position but it was a great honor for him. Endnotes include a timeline of his life, chapter notes, further reading and Internet addresses for more information about this important individual who has done so much for civil rights. It is also an important addition as a classroom resource. 2001, Enslow, $20.95. Ages 10 up. Reviewer: Sue Reichard
School Library Journal
Gr 6-8-Coming of age during the Vietnam era, Bond made his mark as an early organizer for SNCC in Atlanta. He became nationally known when he was elected to the Georgia State House of Representatives but was refused a seat because of his outspoken antiwar views. When the U.S. Supreme Court overturned his expulsion and he was seated in the Georgia Legislature, his prominence was ensured and he was catapulted onto the national stage. In a variety of capacities since that time, he has actively sought to end racism and discrimination. Captioned, black-and-white photos show Bond at different stages of his life. A well-put-together, straightforward introduction to a respected activist.-Janet Woodward, Garfield High School, Seattle, WA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
