James Robert Moore – 1913

James Robert Moore – 1913

This is a picture of James Robert Moore driving a fancy car in 1913, i.e., just 48 years after emancipation.  Sometimes it’s easy to forget that we are not that far removed from slavery.  Think about it, Luvenia Laws was born in 1883 (just 13 years after the announcement of the end of slavery), and James Robert Moore was born that same exact year.

In all of our modern activities, e.g. surfing the internet, watching a movie on the DVD, driving through McDonald’s, microwaving pop corn, it’s easy to forget our history.  But it makes me proud to to see a picture of James Robert Moore prospering even in the midst of what were probably challenging times on so many levels.  We were blessed to have him come before us and lead the way.
