Black Power: A New Flavor of Activism
Harry “Spike” Moss
Harry “Spike” Moss traces his lifelong fight for racial justice to age 9, experiencing a defining moment at a white-only water fountain. Raised in the Jim Crow South, Moss recalls his family’s optimism relocating to Minnesota. But their positive outlook was short-lived, discovering that the North was not immune to the discrimination they sought to leave behind. Disillusioned but not discouraged, Moss later tried a new flavor of activism: the Black Power movement.
