The Algebra Project: Bob Moses’ ‘Gateway to Equality’ for Black Students

Bob Moses teaching math to students at Lanier High School

As an organizer for the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee during the 1960s, Bob Moses traveled to the most dangerous parts of Mississippi to help African Americans end segregation and secure the right to vote.
