Bob Moses in Civil Rights Movement: "Black Power" Era

Bob Moses (1935- ) was a Harlem-born member of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) in the early 1960s.

Moses spent four years working on voter registration in Mississippi and played a crucial role in organizing the 1964 "Freedom Summer" campaign, in which dozens of white and black volunteers traveled into the South to help blacks demand their right to vote.
