Harry and Harriette Moore
The couple founded the NAACP in Brevard County, Florida. In 1951, the home of the couple was bombed and the two were murdered. After about 55 years of the bombing, the State of Florida investigated the incident that three members of the Ku Klux Klan were responsible, but they had died at the time of the investigation.
