By the time of their deaths, Florida had the highest number of registered Black voters, far more than any other Southern state.
In 1934, the Moores founded a chapter of the NAACP in Brevard County. Initially, Harry kept his job as a teacher, working in an unpaid capacity for NAACP for more than a decade. He fought tirelessly for equal rights for Black Floridians by investigating lynchings, challenging barriers to voter registration, and advocating for equal pay for Black teachers in public schools despite segregation.
Learn of their story, their murders, the subsequent investigation into the deaths by the FBI, and the poem that Langston Hughes wrote about Harry Moore.
