The biography of Mose Jones, Jr. weaves an inspiring tale of the man who first planted the seeds of civil rights in Alabama, from the Bloody Sunday march to the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and more, as told by the woman who knew him best - his daughter, Dr. April Jones. In the mid-1980s, Mose Jones, Jr. rose to prominence for his role in bringing voting rights to those who needed it most - the disadvantaged citizens of Lawrence County. But before he was such a motivating political servant, he was a man of God and a loving father. Mentored by a profound coach and teacher, who was the most prominent black political leader in the county, young Mose learned early the value of servant-leadership and how to play a part in bringing hope to his community. Soon, Mose would become a celebrated man who, in the midst of segregation and despair, made a firm decision to promote the moral and social value of those less fortunate countywide. He, who had been pelted with rocks as a boy, would grow up to be so influential that a bridge - still standing today - would be named for him. In this audiobook, Dr. April L. Jones lovingly recounts the formative events that helped shape the life of her father, chronicling his many groundbreaking achievements and in the process, produces an entertaining listen that reflects the life of a man with great faith, friendship, and love for all.
