Harry T. Moore Homesite

The Harry T. and Harriette V. Moore Memorial Park has been developed to commemorate the lives of two pioneering American black civil rights workers. Harry and Harriette were leading human rights activists in Brevard County, in Florida, and in the nation. They organized the first Brevard County Branch of the NAACP in 1934, and he led the Florida organization and the fight for equality and justice until their deaths. As executive secretary of the Progressive Voters League, he helped break down registration barriers and was responsible for the registration of tens of thousands of black Americans throughout Florida.

They were murdered in their home in Mims when a bomb was exploded under their bedroom on Christmas evening, 1951, their 25th wedding anniversary. It was the first killing of a prominent civil rights leader, and was a spark that ignited the American civil rights movement.

Harry T. Moore is remembered by his students for his dignity, his determination, his compassion, his discipline, and the great value he placed on education. He is remembered by those with whom he worked, as a gentleman of learning, ethics, courage and persistence; who had a deep appreciation for the values that make America great.

The cultural center features a timeline of strategic events of the pre-civil rights era. Serving to stimulate appreciation of African-American culture and heritage, programs will include visual, literary and performing arts, as well as on-site and outreach exhibitions. The center will soon be offering lectures, drama, dance, reading, and creative writing, and is a meeting place for community organizations. The 100-seat conference center has surround sound with a backlit screen. The library offers visitor access to reference materials relating to people of African descent. Landscaped with indigenous trees and foliage, and well shaded by large oaks, the park is ideal for concerts, weddings, games and other outdoor activities.

The St. Augustine RECORD - February 28, 2013

Fla. Civil Rights Hall of Fame inductees announced

TALLAHASSEE (AP) — Two married civil-rights activists — killed Christmas 1951 when a bomb exploded beneath their house as they slept — have been inducted into Florida's Civil Rights Hall of Fame.

Gov. Rick Scott on Wednesday named Harry T. and Harriette Moore of Brevard County to the hall.

Harry Moore organized the Florida State Conference NAACP and had fought for voting rights and against unequal teacher pay. The Moores' deaths have never been officially solved but have been attributed to Ku Klux Klan members.
