Join TNS Host Michael Lerner in conversation with Janet Moses.


Janet Jemmott Moses, MD

Janet involved herself in the Civil Rights Movement at a young age. The New York native was only 22 years old when she decided to join the front lines as an activist. She participated in picketing and sit-in-movements in New York, before heading to the south to raise funds for the SNCC—the voter organization co-founded by Bob Moses. Eventually, the two fell in love and got married in 1968. Janet received her medical degree at the University of Boston and established herself as a successful pediatrician at M.I.T.
