The picture above shows Bob Moses counseling civil rights volunteers in Ohio in 1964.
On Sunday, Mr. Moses died at his home in Hollywood, Florida. He was 86 years old.
Moses was the Mississippi director of SNCC. And he risked his life and freedom many times to make this a better country for all of us. He was shot at, beaten repeatedly, and jailed many times in his quest.
Barack Obama said, “Bob Moses was a hero of mine. His quiet confidence helped shape the civil rights movement, and he inspired generations of young people looking to make a difference.”
Robert Parris Moses was true American Hero!
