Harry Moore, an African-American educator and founder of the first branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), and his wife, Harriet, also an educator, were the victims of a bombing at their house in Mims, Florida (Brevard County) on Christmas night in 1951. They both died. They were the first members to be murdered for civil rights activism. During the year 1930, Mr. Moore was the state secretary for the Florida Chapter of the NAACP. Through his registration activities, he increased membership and worked on issues such as housing and education. The Hillsborough County Branch NAACP gladly celebrates and salutes the Moore family.
