Civil rights leader Julian Bond, a former board chairman of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, will speak Nov. 5 at Bridgewater State University. Bond also helped form the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee while a student at Morehouse College in Atlanta in 1960. He served for more than 20 years in the Georgia General Assembly, where he was initially prevented from taking his seat because of his opposition to the Vietnam War. Today, he is professor emeritus at the University of Virginia and teaches at American University. The lecture is part of BSU’s Distinguished Speaker Series, which has previously sponsored talks by Angela Davis, Bill Nye, and Bob Woodward. The event, at 7 p.m. in the Horace Mann Auditorium in Boyden Hall, is free, with reservations on a first-come, first-served basis. To reserve, call 508-531-6123 or visit
