Praise

“Julian Bond lived this history with unflinching dignity and matchless grace. I miss him dearly. Our wounded country needs every lesson he teaches.”
—Taylor Branch, author of the trilogy America in the King Years

“There was no better teacher of the civil rights movement than Julian Bond. There is no better book for learning the civil rights movement than Julian Bond’s Time to Teach. Bond’s window into his movement will always be with us. His lessons for our movement will always be with us. An utterly invaluable resource.”
—Ibram X. Kendi, National Book Award–winning author of Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America

Julian Bond’s Time to Teach is a must-read for anybody interested in the civil rights struggle. Every chapter radiates deep wisdom, fierce historical reality, and far-sighted philosophical insights. Heroism and shame abound. Bond brilliantly comes to grips with what freedom, social justice, and genuine racial equality are about in the American (and global) context. A stupendous book for the ages!”
—Douglas Brinkley, the Katherine Tsanoff Brown Chair in Humanities and Professor of History, Rice University, and author of Rosa Parks: A Life

“Julian Bond, who was one of the greatest people I ever met, was a dedicated teacher, scholar, and civil rights leader. His lectures on the civil rights movement inspired countless young people, helping them recognize their own power as change agents. How incredible that, for the first time, Bond’s lectures are fully captured here and are available to a new generation of activists. Julian Bond’s Time to Teach is a gift and should be required reading for every American. Bond’s words are a guiding light to the power we all possess.”
—Dave Matthews, Grammy Award–winning singer and songwriter

“Julian Bond had a piercing moral clarity from a very young age, and it illuminated his teachings as an elder of the civil rights movement. The lessons in these lectures speak directly to the urgency of now, like an unsparing and prophetic admonishment to those who can or will not remember the past.”
—Diane McWhorter, author of the Pulitzer Prize–winning book Carry Me Home: Birmingham, Alabama: The Climactic Battle of the Civil Rights Revolution

“Julian Bond’s words continue to educate, inspire, and provoke. As we witness the emergence of new sensibilities regarding the complex ways racism has structured our institutions, Time to Teach reminds us of historical continuities, unfulfilled dreams, and collective hope for the future.”
—Angela Y. Davis, Distinguished Professor Emerita, History of Consciousness and Feminist Studies, University of California, Santa Cruz
