song Description:

A folk song from December 2016 to mark the 65th anniversary of assassination of Florida NAACP activist Harry T. Moore and his wife, Harriette, on Christmas night in 1951. (lyrics) On Christmas night In 1951 A bomb it did explode And in the house above Sleeping in his bed Harry T. Moore was killed. (chorus) From Mims, Florida Its NAACP he led He fought for the right to vote And against cops killing prisoners. His wife, Harriette, Was also Injured in the blast And in a hospital 9 days later She, too, breathed her last. (chorus) The murder of the Moores Some called A lynching of a special kind And the Florida police Never did arrest The assassins who committed this crime. (chorus) But thousands rose up To take the place Of the martyred Harry T. Moore And they continue to fight And they won't give up Until the racist System falls. (chorus) Yes, on Christmas night In 1951 A bomb it did explode And in the house above Sleeping in his bed Harry T. Moore was killed.
