Africare mourns the loss of legendary civil rights leader Julian Bond who passed away on Saturday, August 15. The entire Africare family expresses its condolences to Mr. Bond’s wife, Pamela Horowitz, and their family.
We concur with the powerful statement found on the Southern Poverty Law Center website saying, “Not only has the country lost a hero today, we’ve lost a great friend.”
Mr. Bond, who founded the Southern Poverty Law Center in Washington, D.C., was a passionate advocate not just for African Americans, but for every individual and group subject to oppression and discrimination.
Mr. Bond’s spirit will live on in Africare’s mission, which endeavors to improve the lives of all Africans through agricultural, health strengthening and economic development programs throughout Africa.
