Julian Bond interviews Bob Moses, who joined with him in 1960 as a member of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). Moses played pivotal roles in voter registration drives, sit-ins and in leading the Freedom Schools sponsored by SNCC. He also served in a leadership role with the Council for Federated Organizations (COFO). An educator, he taught school for several years in Tanzania. He later founded the Algebra Project using funds received from a MacArthur fellowship. This foundation continues to keep him busy as he strives to make a difference in learning and the lives of young people in more than 200 schools.
