Julian Bond at Princeton
PRA Archive #: 

Speech by Julian Bond about the condition of Blacks in American society. He reads excerpts from three speeches made by Blacks over 100 years earlier (Frederick Douglas, Nat Turner, and Dr. John S. Rock). Bond comments that the Vietnam War is illegal, with violence against hungry children and a disproportionate number of Blacks serving in the armed forces. He goes on to compare the period following reconstruction with policies of President Richard Nixon in Florida and Chicago. After 16 years of the Civil Rights Movement, integration has not taken place. The liberals did not help when the leaders of the Black Panthers were destroyed. The war on poverty has been lost. He concludes with a call for a coalition of all disenfranchised groups to battle racism and oppression. Recorded at Princeton University, 17 Oct. 1969.
