MIMS, Fla. (AP) – The daughter of two Florida civil rights leaders who were killed when their home was bombed on Christmas night in 1951 has died.
Juanita Evangeline Moore was discovered Monday in her home in New Carrollton, Maryland.
The president of a cultural center dedicated to her parents, Harry and Harriette Moore, says Moore was 85.
Moore was an advocate for the legacy of her parents, whose deaths marked one of the darkest chapters in Florida’s civil rights history.
No one was charged with their murders, but an investigation a decade ago concluded it likely was carried about by Ku Klux Klan members who had already died.
