February 26, 2014
11:00AM - 12:30PM (EST)
Legendary civil rights figure BOB MOSES, who risked death in Mississippi for the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee and inspired thousands of college students to join the movement, will engage in a personal discussion with Doug Blackmon about change in the "Deep Deep South" over the past half century, and the 50th anniversaries of Freedom Summer and the passage of the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964. Moses will also discuss his ongoing work through the “Algebra Project,” teaching complex math in the nation's most troubled schools.
