# 57 Growing up in the Movement

Alexis Moore Bruton and Cecily Moore Banks, daughters of legendary Philadelphia civil rights leader Cecil B. Moore, share stories about the man, the dad, and the leader. From having their home phone tapped by the FBI, to being signed up to model in milk ads, Bruton and Banks give us a glimpse of what it was like to grow up with a celebrity dad.
