Civil Rights Bus Tour | IAOHRA Members Visited the Pulse Nightclub Memorial. The Pulse Memorial is a sanctuary of quiet reflection and love dedicated to honoring the senseless loss of innocent life and remembering the horrible attack that occurred on June 12, 2016. 

 
Also on the tour was the Harry T. & Harriette V. Moore Cultural Park & Museum. The 11.93-acre park is dedicated to the life and legacy of civil rights torch barriers Harry T. and Harriette V. Moore and is built on their original home site. The two were civil rights giants of the modern civil rights movement in Central Florida and throughout the state. The two were slain in 1951 when a bomb exploded on Christmas night in an attempt to stop the progress fought for by the Moore’s….it was “The Bomb Heard around the World,” one writer recorded.
 
The guided tour allowed members to explore Central Florida’s civil rights history, see a replica ​of the Moore’s home and learn about the tireless efforts of Harry and Harriette and other civil rights leaders through the artifacts, memorabilia and outreach exhibits.

Fireside Chat With Civil Rights Leaders | Congratulations to Freedom Rider Hezekiah Watkins! The Civil Rights veteran and Mississippi Civil Rights Museum staff member was honored with the Civil Rights Legends award from the International Association of Official Human Rights Agencies (IAOHRA).
