This description of Robert P. Moses's work was prepared when Robert P. Moses was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2008.
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.
