Bond helped establish the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, was chairman of the NAACP for 12 years and was the first president of the Southern Poverty Law Center. He is currently on the faculty of American University and the University of Virginia.

Bond will lead a tour of civil rights sites the afternoon of Nov. 1.

Southern Jewish History editor Mark Bauman will speak about Rabbi Allen Krause, who died this past year, and his interviews of Southern rabbis during the civil righst movement.

There will be presentations on Birmingham Jewish history and other areas of Southern Jewish life. The conference will be housed at the Doubletree Hotel near the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Registration information is available here.
