Julian Bond Library of Congress

Living Legend award

26 Sep, 2008

The Library of Congress honors Bond as a Living Legend, an award that honors artists, writers, activists, filmmakers, physicians, entertainers, sports figures and public servants who have made significant contributions to America’s cultural, scientific and social heritage.

I felt flattered and honored and especially pleased to be in the company of the other awardees. By lucky coincidence, I was able to lead a chorus of Happy Birthday to fellow honoree Herbie Hancock.
