Ashoka Fellow
United States
Fellow Since 2008
    This description of Robert P. Moses's work was prepared when Robert P. Moses was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2008.
    Introduction
    After playing a pivotal role in the civil rights movement, Robert P. Moses turned his focus to promoting equal education. He launched the Algebra Project to spread math literacy, a gateway skill that gives minority students the opportunity to succeed in the new tech-based economy. In much the same way he helped organize Mississippi communities to demand the right to vote, Moses is helping to build a national movement to fight for equality in education as a Civil Right.
