REMEMBERING: An exhibit honoring the late Fort Lauderdale Commissioner Carlton B. Moore is on display until Saturday, Dec. 30, at the African-American Research Library and Cultural Center in Ft. Lauderdale.


FORT LAUDERDALE – Carlton B. Moore served on the Fort Lauderdale Commission from 1988 to 2009 and blazed a trail of service and activism as president of the Fort Lauderdale branch of the NAACP. Moore, who passed away on April 2, 2014, at age 60, is being remembered in an exhibit, titled “Carlton B. Moore: Life and Legacy of a Public Servant,” at the Broward County African-American Research Library and Cultural Center Museum in Fort Lauderdale.

The exhibit, which began on November 30 and continues through December 30, features artifacts that capture the highlights of Moore’s political career and personal life – including community and national awards, campaign materials, his beloved Harley Davidson motorcycle and more. It is being presented by the Carlton B. Moore Freedom Foundation (CBMFF), which was established shortly after Moore’s death.

“Carlton served Fort Lauderdale with passion and dedication – he truly was committed to bringing justice, social change and economic empowerment to the historically underserved,” said Rebecca “Becky” Jones, president of the CBMFF. “We want to share it with the community as a remembrance of a life well-lived and to encourage the next generation to serve their community with the same commitment.”
