The Julian Bond Papers Project is an innovative digital project that seeks not only to make the life’s work of Civil Rights icon Julian Bond freely available to the public but also to render accessible the editorial process to community historians, crowdsourced transcriptionists, and student apprentices. Julian Bond was a trusted voice in American democracy throughout his life, which spanned seven decades and significant historical moments like the U.S. Civil Rights era, school desegregation, the Vietnam War, South African apartheid, the movement for Gay Rights, and the environmental movement. The Julian Bond Papers Project plans to catalog, transcribe, annotate, and publish Bond’s collection over approximately two decades, while implementing a crowdsourced transcription process that has created over 8000 pages to-date, including work from annual Charlottesville transcription events. The project also establishes editorial apprenticeships to teach students digital skills and model alternate-academic career options. The project will use these strategies to publish the majority of the Bond Papers, housed at the University of Virginia’s Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library and including 11 series, 1641 folders, and 47,000 items.

The Julian Bond Papers Project works in partnership with the Center for Digital Editing at the University of Virginia to conceptualize and create the digital edition. We also work closely with the Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library at the University of Virginia to create digital copies of the Bond collection. This project is generously supported by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission.
