Don't Mute Moe: The Vision of an Urban Scholar
Don't Mute Moe: The Vision of an Urban Scholar illuminates how Ron "Moe" Moten, an activist fighting for equity and the economic development (among other things) of DC's Black community, has taken on the responsibility of answering this question, not just for himself, but for the entire community.
This book is an incremental uncovering of the steps Moe has taken to ensure the Black community in DC isn't just remembered by future generations. He is actively putting the pieces in place for Black DC to grow with the city and not be pushed out or MUTED.
Don't Mute Moe is a collaboration between Ron and journalist Jeffrey Anderson. It is composed of 12 op-eds that were published in the Washington Post, Washington Times and other publications. The interviews by Mr. Anderson highlight their remarkable and disturbing relevance to current social issues plaguing black urban youth, families, and communities.
