Algebra Project, Inc. Statement on the passing of Robert Parris Moses

It is with sadness, our deepest condolences, appreciation and meditations that the Algebra Project, Inc., shares the news of the passing of our founder, mentor, President, teacher and friend, Robert Parris Moses.  His transition to that higher level only inspires us all to love, struggle and live with and for our people as he did, as we continue to work to realize Bob’s vision of “raising the floor of mathematics literacy” for all young people in the United States of America.

At this challenging and reflective time we send peace, strength and love to the Moses Family: Bob’s wife, Dr. Janet Jemmott Moses; children Maisha Moses, Omo Moses, Taba Moses, Malaika Moses & daughter-in-love Saba Moses; and Grandchildren Zuri Sueksagan Moses, Parris Sueksagan Moses, Krishna Moses Mitchell, Johari Moses, Kamara Moses, Yohana Kahassai Moses & Yara Kahassai Moses. 

We also send love and encouragement to the Algebra Project network – the Young People’s Project, the Baltimore Algebra Project, Math Talk, The Ohio State University Math Literacy Initiative, the Southern Initiative Algebra Project and the Historically Black Colleges and Universities Collaborative, the Florida Local Alliance for Math Literacy and Equity, as well as the We the People – Math Literacy for All Alliance, and countless more – to continue to pursue Bob’s math literacy work as our collective work.

Bob, you will always be with us, and you already know we absolutely will Keep on Pushing!

With ultimate respect,

Algebra Project, Inc., Board of Directors and Staff
