Join us on 321 Lift Off for a conversation about the Harry T. and Harriette V. Moore Memorial Park & Museum located in Mims on Florida’s Space Coast.
Harry T. Moore and his wife, Harriette, were educators by profession. They lived in Mims, Florida, a small citrus town near Orlando, and taught in segregated public schools in and around Brevard County from 1925 to 1946. The Moore’s were the first civil rights activists of the modern civil rights era in the State of Florida. Harry organized the first Brevard County Branch of the NAACP in 1934 and became President of the Florida Conference of NAACP branches in 1941.
On Christmas night in 1951, after the Moore family celebrated Christmas and the couple’s 25th wedding anniversary, a bomb exploded under the bedroom of Harry T. and Harriette V. Moore’s home in Mims. Mr. Moore died in the blast, while Mrs. Moore died nine days later.
Listen to us live on Friday, September 23, 2022, at 10 a.m as we learn more about the Moore's and the Harry and Harriet Moore Museum, which includes a replica of the home positioned on the original home site to look the same way it did on that tragic day of the bombing. The museum is free to visit and is truly a hidden gem located on the Space Coast of Florida.
