Freedom Summer Luncheon Dialogue, Bob Moses and the Political Winds of Change

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

This is a news release from the Hattiesburg Cultural Center

During the 1960s, Bob Moses was an integral participant in the civil rights movement, organizing voter registration drives, sit-ins and Freedom Schools for the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee.

Today, he runs The Algebra Project a national mathematics literacy program aimed at helping low income students and students of color — particularly African American and Latino students — successfully achieve mathematical skills that are a prerequisite for college preparation. In recognition of his work with low-income and minority children through the Algebra Project, Bob Moses became the sixth recipient of the Heinz Award in the Human Condition.
