A few dozen people joined together at a memorial ceremony in Canal Park Saturday afternoon to honor the life of an NAACP President who passed away last week.

Julian Bond was a noted Civil Rights leader who advocated for voter’s rights.

Local members of the Duluth Chapter of the NAACP said people need to continue to take a stand.

“We’ve become a nation that likes to click “like” instead of get out and hold picket signs and take a stance. (It’s) time for us to unplug and get back out with community and correct the changes,” said a member of the Duluth Chapter of the NAACP Carl Crawford.

Flower petals were spread at Lake Superior in memory of Bond.
