An important Black Lives Matter activist from Charleston, South Carolina, who gained prominence in the wake of the police shooting of Walter Scott and when he grabbed a Confederate flag from a protester, was shot and killed February 6, 2018, in New Orleans. Muhiyidin Elamin Moye, who went by Muhiyidin d'Baha, 32, was found dead Tuesday morning after being shot in the thigh while riding his bicycle on Bienville Street. Rushed to a local hospital, he later died there of his wounds. No suspects are in custody.
Elamin = “truthful.”
Moye = Dutch (de Moye): nickname from Middle Dutch moy, moeie, "fine," "handsome," denoting a "well-dressed person or a dandy."
d'Baha = Arabic, "brilliance," "magnificent," "splendor," "glory."
Commentator Anita Ladaprarez notes that "between this death and the extremely suspicious deaths of prominent activists and their relations in St. Louis, it seems very dangerous to be the more camera-eager kind of black activist."
