The 32-year-old Muhiyidin d'Baha - also known as Moye - was an activist belonging to Charleston Black Lives Matter, who is famous for his defiant stance in February 2017 against the symbol of black oppression, outside the College of Charleston.

D'baha's family has set up a GoFundMe page to help cover funeral costs and the return of his body from New Orleans. You can donate to the GoFundMe now.

'The last thing he said to me was that he was doing community work out of town and that he was learning so that he could come back to Charleston and help empower the people.

Camille says the remaining money will be given to Mr d'Baha's sister Kimberli. Duncan said the fight against injustice was her brother's "personal battle", according to a report by The Root from a Tuesday evening vigil at North Charleston City Hall.

"For all who have stood on the battlefield of social justice activism in the Lowcountry and throughout our State, we've lost a great brother to senseless gun violence today", Dixon, who co-founded the activist group The Coalition: People United To Take Back Our Community, wrote Tuesday on Facebook.

Moye's death occurred during a particularly violent stretch in New Orleans.

Moye's death brings the number of murders in New Orleans in 2018 to 25. Reports say d'Baha was shot in New Orleans early Tuesday morning (Feb. 6), eventually dying of his wounds.

His family started a GoFundMe page asking people for support for his funeral services and the campaign has so far, in less than one day, received nearly double the set goal of US$7500.

The incident happened outside the Sottile Theatre where Brittany "Bree" Newsome was speaking.
