American educator, civil rights activist, Robert Parris Moses known as Bob Moses passed on Sunday July 25. Bob was known for his work as a leader of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee on voter education and registration in Mississippi during the Civil Rights Movement, and his co-founding of the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party.
The 86 year-old was devoted to his entire being to lead, educate, and put together ages of Americans to respond to that question by making real the promise of America. He really lectured that all Americans were completely made equal, accordingly had the right to be dealt with similarly for the duration of their lives.
Speaking in the spring of 1964 about his plans for Freedom Summer, Bob Moses summed up the heroic effort to register Black voters in the Deep South with a question: “What kind of society will we be?”
Bob Moses was extremely energetic about his activities and did as such with serenity and quietude regardless of each slug, arrest, and persistent ruthlessness he confronted.
The tough and dangerous reaction to the Freedom Summer he coordinated stirred help for the milestone Voting Rights Act of 1965. Bob understood the pith of education as incredible equalizer, thus assisted countless number of students with understanding their fantasies and maximum capacity.
Bob never under any circumstance gave in until his final gasp on earth. With attacks on the right to vote unseen since the days of the Jim Crow system Bob helped to dismantle.
That said, President of the United States Joe Biden has recently spoken about Bob Moses after the Passing of Civil Rights Leader. Adding to what in particular Bob Moses began before his passing, President Joe Biden said:
“I call on Congress again to pass the For the People Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act. Let us build the coalition of Americans of every race and background that he once formed to meet the urgency of the moment. And let us follow his towering legacy and ensure every American is treated with the dignity and respect they deserve”.
The President further communicated:
and I send our love and prayers to Bob’s wife, Janet, their four children, and their seven grandchildren.
May God favor Bob Moses.
