From the Archives: Civil Rights Leader Bob Moses in 2010 on Fighting for Equality in Law & Education

As part of our look back at the life of legendary civil rights leader Bob Moses, who has died at the age of 86, Democracy Now! is unearthing this never-before-seen interview from 2010 with Moses and his son, Omo Moses, of The Young People’s Project. Bob Moses served as field secretary for SNCC, the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee and helped register thousands of voters across Mississippi. He also headed the Council of Federated Organizations, and in 1964 helped create the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party and organize the Mississippi Freedom Summer Project. Moses went on to found the Algebra Project, devoted to improving access to education, particularly in math, for students of color. In October 2010, Democracy Now! co-host Juan Gonzalez interviewed Moses after the publication of a book he co-edited, “Quality Education as a Constitutional Right: Creating a Grassroots Movement to Transform Public Schools.”
