Volume 37: In 1960 as director of the SNCC's Mississippi Project, Bob Moses traveled to the South to try to register black voters. In 1982 he received a MacArthur Fellowship, and used the money to create the Algebra Project, a foundation devoted to improving minority education in math. "Lack of education" says Moses, was the "subtext" of the voting rights struggle. "We won the right to vote; the fight for public accommodations, but not education. And in that way, though Blacks are citizens, they are second class citizens." The current fight, Moses explains, is for quality public education as a constitutional right. He introduces Albert Sykes who began working with Moses in Jackson, Mississippi more than a decade ago.
