  • The Moore Legacy Curriculum began as a call-to-action by The Moore Cultural Complex Board, Inc. and The Brevard Federation of Teachers for Brevard Public Schools to reinstate Harry T. and Harriette V. Moore, former BPS educators and civil rights activists, after their unjust firing in 1946 and to implement a mandatory fourth grade field trip to the Moore Cultural Complex (Moore Memorial Park and Museum). 

    With the approval of The Harry T. and Harriette V. Moore Legacy Curriculum proclamation and resolution on February 23, 2021 by the BPS School Boardthe legacy of The Moores will be taught to all  Brevard Schools students in commemoration to forever honor The Moores’ legacy with a comprehensive curriculum in multiple grade levels, an 8th grade field trip, and a posthumous recognition of The Moores as BPS Teachers Emeritus. This proclamation and resolution serves as a commitment to our journey of ensuring that racial injustice and inequity are not a thread in the rich tapestry of diversity and culture in our district.  As part of our mission to serve every student with excellence, this curriculum and field trip aim to enhance student awareness of the contributions made by Americans and African Americans in American History and the journey for equality, such as local activists and educators - Harry and Harriette Moore.

    In partnership with The Moore Cultural Complex, Inc. and Brevard Federation of Teachers, the Office of Equity and Diversity commissioned a Task Force of BPS employees and community members in Spring 2021 to lead efforts in creating the curriculum across the district and additional learning opportunities to advance our student and employee understanding and appreciation of The Moores.
