JOHN RAITT and JULIAN BOND


Original portrait of Bond, drawn by John Raitt, signed by both!


Original Art signed: " Julian/Bond/3/14/'69" in blue ink.5x8. Color pencil drawing also signed by the artist "Raitt". In February 1998, Julian Bond (1940-2015) was elected Chairman of the NAACP, a 500,000-member group that was founded in 1909. Prominent in Civil Rights protests in the 1960s, Bond led a sit-in movement to desegregate Atlanta's lunch counters before turning to a career in politics. In 1965, he won a seat in Georgia's state legislature, but the body refused to seat him, citing his statement accusing the U.S. of violating international law in Vietnam. In December 1966, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled the exclusion unconstitutional, and Bond was sworn in on January 9, 1997. Bond, who served in the Georgia House of Representatives (1967-1975) and Georgia Senate (1975-1987), became the first Black man to have his name placed in nomination for the vice presidency of a major political party in 1968; he withdrew his name as he was under the Constitutional minimum age.While in college in the 1930s, JOHN RAITT began drawing portraits of famous people. He sent his artwork to each subject with a request that it be autographed and returned to him. Two horizontal folds. Tape affixed at corners. Otherwise, fine condition.
