Former National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) chairman Julian Bond penned an op-ed aiming to increase the discussion of same-sex marriage within the African-American community.
The opinion piece was published in Afro-American newspaper, which is notable because the paper circulates in Baltimore, Maryland and Washington, D.C.
Maryland will be the site of a voter referendum on same-sex marriage in November and 25 percent of the state's voters are African-American.
Check out Bond's piece, "Why Marriage In Maryland Matters" after the jump!
