Fred Moore is pictured at the podium in White Hall on the campus of South Carolina State College speaking to his fellow students about civil rights activities in February 1956. 

In 1956, students at South Carolina State College under the leadership of Moore, President of the Student Body, conducted a five day protest strike. Moore was expelled along with other students for their involvemen in the strike.

In March 2006, South Carolina State University's President Andrew Hugging, Jr. apologized to Moore and the other former students who had gathered at a symposium “Honoring Heroes.”
