Moye, a Black Lives Matter leader in Charleston, South Carolina, was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct last year for trying to snatch a protester’s Confederate flag.

Moye was captured on a live news broadcast launching himself across police tape, grabbing the flagpole, and trying to wrestle it away from a protester outside the College of Charleston.

Members of the South Carolina Secessionist Party were protesting a speech by Bree Newsome, a filmmaker and activist who famously brought down the Confederate flag outside the South Carolina State House.

Moye’s loved ones mourned his death on social media and remembered his work as an activist.

Lindsay Keane wrote, “What an incredible soul. I knew Moya over ten years ago when he was already so wise and was already bringing so much love and light into the world.”

“Knowing him inspired me to walk my own path and search for Truth with a passion. I am positive his impact on the world and the lives he touched will continue to ripple and spread immeasurable light in the world forever,” she added.

Shaundra Scott wrote, “You will be missed and we will continue your work and preserve your legacy.”

The GoFundMe page Weaver set up has raised more than $14,350 so far.
