(p.291) Epilogue
Robert Parris Moses

The Epilogue summarizes Moses’s life from his departure from SNCC until today, featuring his draft resistance, his undercover life in Canada, and seven year existence in Tanzania with his new wife Janet Jemmott and their children. Detailing his disappointment about the possibilities for African-Americans to integrate into Tanzanian society, it traces his return to the United States in the mid-seventies and how he managed to set up a new activist career by combining his childhood, SNCC, Mississippi, and Tanzania experiences into the widely successful Algebra Project, which advocates math literacy for underprivileged public school children. This leads to a general conclusion regarding the legacy and significance of Moses and his grassroots leadership style.
