“Race around the World” is an examination of how civil rights figures and civil rights organizations played a role in shaping and changing American foreign policy. Julian Bond has played a central role throughout the U.S. Civil Rights Movement, as a leading figure in the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee and as co-founder and first president of the Southern Poverty Law Center. Bond was repeatedly elected to the Georgia General Assembly for 20 years, including six terms as a state senator. More recently, he has served as Chairman of the NAACP for 12 years, from 1998 to 2010. AAG President, Julie Winkler, conferred the 2014 AAG Atlas Award to Professor Bond following his address.

"In the spirit of strengthening our intellectual foundations and clarifying our contributions to shaping Earth I advocate for thinking geographically, as a way of being in the world that all can join, rather than policing the boundaries of a discipline called Geography," says AAG Past President Eric Sheppard. He will delivered his address, "Thinking Geographically: Globalizing Capitalism and Beyond," on Thursday, April 10, 2014. Watch on YouTube
