Hollywood, Florida-Civil rights activist Robert Paris Moses, who led the black voter registration drive in the southern United States in the 1960s and later helped improve math minority education, died. He was 86 years old.

Moses worked as Mississippi Field Director of the Student Nonviolent Coordination Commission during the Civil Rights Movement to dismantle racism and was the centerpiece of the 1964 Freedom Summer in Mississippi.

Moses launched “Chapter 2 of Civil Rights Activities” by establishing an algebraic project in 1982, thanks to the MacArthur Fellowship. The project included a curriculum developed by Moses to help poor students succeed in mathematics.

Ben Moinihan, head of the algebra project, said he had spoken to Moses’ wife, Dr. Janet Moses, and said her husband had died in Hollywood, Florida, Sunday morning.
