UVa. Welcomes Civil Rights Activist Bob Moses

Feb. 26, 2014

A prominent Civil Rights activist came to the University of Virginia to talk about his experiences.

Over 100 people gathered Wednesday to hear Bob Moses speak.

He spoke about his battle for voter registration and how these often turned violent. Both Charlottesville residents and UVa. students attended to hear his heroic journey in the early 1960’s.

After all this, Moses now has his focus on giving our youth an opportunity for success.

"Children, the young people who are age 10 to 40, they will be running the country 30 years from now,” said Moses. “They will be from 40 to 70. They need to start thinking now about what kind of country they want to run."

Moses has now dedicated his life to helping low income students gain mathematical skills through the Algebra Project.
