The Blackman Who Reads Aloud Remember Harry and Harriet Moore Ultimate Price For Our Civil Rights

The Blackman Who Reads Aloud remembers this Christmas Story. Please share this story of the ultimate sacrifice paid by Harry and Harriet Moore on Christmas Day, 1951.

The father's name was Harry Moore.
The N.A.A.C.P.
Told him to carry out its work
That Negroes might be free.

So it was that Harry Moore
(So deeply did he care)
Sought the right for men to live
With their heads up everywhere.

Because of that, white killers,
Who like Negroes "in their place,"
Came stealing through the orange groves
On that night of dark disgrace.
