- Program Description
When Bob Moses started his teaching career, he boarded a bus with other Freedom Fighters in 1963 to teach math to African Americans living in Mississippi. His experience with the Civil Rights Movement taught him the importance of education in empowering black voters. When Moses’ children were about to enter high school, Moses learned that there were no algebra courses taught to 7th and 8th graders at Cambridge’s MLK School. Moses volunteered his time in the classroom working with students to help prepare them for the high school curriculum. A MacArthur Fellow, Moses teaches his Algebra Project at Wheelock College.
