Descrizione

In '1951 America' terrorism was homegrown. There were no battles fought on American soil. Yet there were twelve bombings targeting black Americans, Catholics, and Jews in "Jim Crow" Florida. And one of those bombs was, symbolically, heard around the world. Harry T. Moore and his wife, Harriette, were murdered on Christmas night, in 1951, by racist terrorists. Ironically, Harry knew he was a target of the KKK but he swore he would keep going, working for civil and human rights for African Americans, even if they killed him. The Moore family's courage was remarkable. World War ll had just ended and with battles taking place overseas, Americans had never experienced the shock and tragedy of war on 'home soil' (apart from Pearl Harbor). As well, Americans, for a very long time, paid little attention to the persecution of blacks and other minorities, despite the multitude of violent, racist episodes; not dissimilar from events in Nazi Germany. This book explores the events leading up to the Moore assassinations and follows long after, with extensive investigations by the FBI, Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Brevard County Sheriff's Office, and the Department of Justice. What they uncovered was remarkable, and the corruption that accompanied the crime was shocking. The Bomb Heard Around the World reveals new information and hidden facts which exposes both savage corruption and exceptional courage over decades in America. The Moore assassinations became an international referendum on America, its law enforcement, its politics, its value, and its administrations. At the end of World War ll the world had turned to America as the beacon of freedom and liberty, yet after the deaths of Harry and Harriette Moore, world opinion shifted. This journey through Harry and Harriette Moore's lives and deaths is a road trip through the history of America over many decades. And while this is the story of Harry and Harriette Moore, it is also a story for today.

Quarta di copertina

With many unjustified killings of blacks in America today, the racial divide has widened, exponentially. Racial injustices of yesteryear relate directly to today's current events. Ironically, decades after the assassinations of Harry T. and Harriette V. Moore, a Republican Attorney General named Charlie Crist, would take on this criminal case in an attempt to solve the Moore assassinations once and for all. He faced enormous political pressures yet stayed the course. While this is a story from history, it is also a story for today. Generations of racism, murders, lynchings, judicial malfeasance, police corruption, perverted politics, and controversial crime investigations populate the pages of THE BOMB HEARD AROUND THE WORLD.
