Remembering Bob Moses

CommonWealth Magazine remembers Bob Moses, a civil-rights leader with strong roots in Cambridge, who died Sunday at 86.

He turned his focus to K-12 math after becoming frustrated by the middle school math instruction his daughter was getting in the Cambridge schools.

Using proceeds from a MacArthur Foundation “genius” grant he was awarded, in 1982 he established the Algebra Project, a nonprofit focused on boosting math “literacy” among Black school children. By 2001, it was serving 10,000 students in 28 cities.
