Happy Birthday, Julian Bond!

Here is one paragraph from the biography at the Southern Poverty Law Center site:

As an activist who has faced jail for his convictions, as a veteran of more than 20 years of service in the Georgia General Assembly, as a writer, teacher, and lecturer, Julian Bond has been on the cutting edge of social change since he was a college student leading sit in demonstrations in Atlanta in 1960.

I found this quote attributed to Julian Bond:

“Many are attracted to social service-the rewards are immediate, the gratification quick. But if we have social justice, we won't need social service.”

Does anyone know its source?

I'm looking forward to retiring as soon as everyone starts doing what they should.
