To: U.S. Postal Service Citizens' Stamp Advisory Committee
Harry T. & Harriette V. Moore U.S. Postal Stamp
We, the Harry T. & Harriette V. Moore Cultural Complex Inc., are submitting a proposal to the Citizens' Stamp Advisory Committee requesting the issuance of a Commemorative Stamp in recognition of Civil Rights leaders Harry T. & Harriette V. Moore. We request you support by signing the petition, which will be submitted with our proposal package. Harry T. Moore organized the first Brevard County Florida NAACP branch in 1934 and went on to establish some fifty branches across the state. He later organized the first Florida State Conference of NAACP Branches and served as its first President and the first paid Executive Secretary of a state conference. On Christmas night 1951, the Moore's twenty-fifth wedding anniversary, a bomb exploded under the Moore's Mims, Florida home killing Harry T. and fatally injuring his wife Harriette who died nine days later. No one has ever been prosecuted for the murder of these first martyrs of the civil rights movement.
Why is this important?
