African American Club of Pasco travels to Mims | Arts & Culture
Pasco County, Florida-- According to a release from the African American Club of Pasco, they will sponsor a bus tour to Mims, Florida on April 21 to celebrate the lives and sacrifices of civil rights martyrs, Harry and Harriet Moore at the 9th Annual Harry T. Moore Heritage Festival.
Harry and Harriet Moore worked to register African Americans in Florida for years during the 30s and 40s, and they were assassinated in their Mims home on December 25, 1951.
Their killers were never arrested or tried, and their surviving daughter Evangeline, age 81, is still hopeful that she will see justice for her parents.
To participate in the bus tour, meet at the African American Building (the Booker T. Washington Schoolhouse) at 6105 Pine Hill Road, Port Richey, 34688 at 5:15 a.m.
Planned activities in Mims include a health fair, a food court, performances, arts and crafts, and a visit to the Memorial Museum at the site of the former Moore home.
The bus will return to the AAC Building at 11 p.m.
The cost for each person is $25, and they request that you bring your own folding chair.
