Educator Bob Moses. He was a leader in the Civil Rights struggle, helping to register black voters in Mississippi during the Freedom Summer of 1964. He's still a civil rights activist, though his weapon now is Math. He's the director and creator of the innovative Algebra Project which opens up educational opportunities for young African-Americans. Moses established the project in Cambridge, Mass in 1982. Since then it's been implemented across the country, and has reached 9,000 inner city youths. (REBROADCAST from 3/22/93)
