Horace Julian Bond was an influential social justice activist, politician, and visionary who is best known as one of the founders of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). For over two decades, he taught a popular class at the University of Virginia on the history of the civil rights movement. Compiled from his original lecture notes, Julian Bond's Time to Teach brings his invaluable teachings to a new generation of readers and provides a necessary toolkit for today's activists in the era of Black Lives Matter and #MeToo. Bond sought to dismantle the perception of the civil rights movement as a peaceful and respectable protest that quickly garnered widespread support. Through his lectures, Bond detailed the ground-shaking disruption the movement caused, its immense unpopularity at the time, and the bravery of activists, some very young, who chose to disturb order to pursue justice. Beginning with the movement's origins in the early twentieth century, Bond tackles key events such as the Montgomery bus boycott, the Little Rock Nine, Freedom Rides, sit-ins, Mississippi voter registration, the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church Bombing, the March on Washington, the Civil Rights Act, Freedom Summer, and Selma. He explains the youth activism, community ties, and strategizing required to build strenuous and successful movements. With these firsthand accounts of the civil rights movement and original photos from Danny Lyon, Julian Bond's Time to Teach makes history come alive.

    “History is not what people like to hear, Bond believed; it’s what people need to learn to better understand our past and our future.” “... ordinary women and men proving they can perform extraordinary tasks in the pursuit of freedom. They did then and can do so again.” Julian Bond was a civil rights activist, politician, head of the NAACP and a professor for two decades. This book is a compilation of his college lectures based on both his extensive research and his personal knowledge. At the end “History is not what people like to hear, Bond believed; it’s what people need to learn to better understand our past and our future.” “... ordinary women and men proving they can perform extraordinary tasks in the pursuit of freedom.

This book is a compilation of his college lectures based on both his extensive research and his personal knowledge. At the end of book, unfortunately not available on the audio edition, is a lengthy annotated bibliography that Professor Bond prepared when he led civil rights tours. The lectures are eloquent, informative and illustrate the “diverse and often fractious nature of civil rights activism”, how people were changed by the pressures they faced and how the various approaches evolved over time. They are full of fascinating content, including: Black migration, Jim Crow laws, lynchings, the gulf between how the United States presented itself and reality, disruptive protests, Supreme Court decisions, school integration, long-burning problems and catalytic events, the origin stories of numerous activists and civil rights organizations, voter registration, freedom riders, boycotts, civil rights legislation, political compromises and the image of small children singing on their way to jail. Bond was a great teacher. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher.

    This is an excellent book about the history of the Southern Civil Rights movement. When I took history this subject was never taught and I grew up in Calif so I lived far away from the South. This is why I love to read because I love learning about anything in history. I do have one story I do know about. In the 1960's Las Vegas hotels were segregated. Frank Sinatra and his Rat Pack Boys were performing at the Sands and their names were up on the marquee. When they went to check in they told Sam This is an excellent book about the history of the Southern Civil Rights movement.

I do have one story I do know about. In the 1960's Las Vegas hotels were segregated. Frank Sinatra and his Rat Pack Boys were performing at the Sands and their names were up on the marquee. When they went to check in they told Sammy Davis Jr he could not stay there. Frank Sinatra told them he stays he or we do not perform here. He was very loyal to his friends. This book is very extensive in how the Civil rights movement started and he talks about many things including the Supreme Court, the bus boycott, the march on Washington, and Selma. I was thinking of something else. When my father was in the Air Force in WW11 the Tuskegee Airmen flew cover for his division and they lost many lives protecting these bombing missons. Later on he voluntereed at an Air Musuem and they had an event to celebrate these brave men and I got to meet a few who were still alive. It also talks about Martin Luther King and voting rights. Anyone who wants to learn about this subject will learn a lot from this book.

    This book is a collection of lectures that Julian Bond used in his courses on the Civil Rights Movement. The book is special in many ways. Julian was a participant in many of the events that are discussed in the book. He was communications director for SNCC and in that role was at the center of so many of the events and strategy that made up the movement. He includes a section on the philosophical differences between the different organizations that made up the civil rights movement.

He includes a section on the philosophical differences between the different organizations that made up the civil rights movement. The book also introduces the reader to many of the lesser people in the movement. They were the frontline people who were so important in the movement,but were not household names. This book is essential read for anyone interested in the civil rights movement and the people and events that created it.

    While I have read the chronology of the Civil Rights movement before I always feel it can never be read enough times. The same struggles continue and accomplishments made get undone and have to be fought for again in an endless cycle that seems to go on forever without cease. The fight continues.

    The way we are taught the Civil Rights movement is almost like we only watch the checkmates in a chess tournament. Bond's college lectures introduce us to all the pieces and show us how, working together through battle after battle, each of the offensives ended the checkmate.
