lDEItAIE UUK VU1ES IU THAKKY 1. AND ARKIETTE 11IV1UUKRE WHU
GAVE THEIR LIVES FOR US TO HAVE THE RIGHT TO VOTE
On Christmas night of 1951, Florida Civil-Rights crusader Harry T. Moore and his wife, Harriette, were killed
(Mrs. Moore died a few days later in the hospital) by a bomb placed under their house, by members of the Ku
Klux Klan. Moore founded the first branch of the NAACP in Brevard County, Florida and helped organize the
statewide organization. He became the state secretary for the Florida chapter of the NAACP. The NAACP won
a major victory in Florida in 1944 when its Whites-only Democratic Primary was ruled unconstitutional, and
Moore began immediately to take advantage of the opportunity to increase Black political power and stepped up
the organizations voter registration efforts. Largely as a result of his activities, Black voter registration increased
from a miserable 5 percent in 1934 to 31 percent in 1950...a figure that was higher than any other southern state.
November 2, 2010 will be almost 59 years from the time the Moore's gave their lives for us to have the Right
To Vote! December 25, 2010 will be one year shy of six decades when two little girls lost their parents because
some racist thought we should NOT have the Right To Vote!
I DON'T THINK WE HAVE A CHOICE TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 2010.1 I BELIEVE WE OWE IT TO
HARRY AND HARRIETTE MOORE TO GET OUT AND VOTE!!!
The Conservative are not trying to fool us, they have told us to our faces what they plan to do if they take back
the U. S. House and Senate. They have let us know that they plan to roll back the funds for Education which will
affect Our Children; and Social Security which will affect Our Mothers and Fathers; Health Care, which will
affect All of Us who do not currently have health insurance; and Jobs, which will affect All of Us who do not cur-
rently have jobs or those who wish to have better jobs or the opportunity to move up.
In 2008 we elected President Barack H. Obama, the first African American President. November 2, 2010 at the
top of the ticket we have the opportunity to elect Kendrick Meek to the U. S. Senate. As the Senator for Florida
Kendrick Meek would be the first African American elected to the Senate past the Mason Dixon Line. The whole
south is watching Florida in this race. This is the half way point in President Obama's presidency and we owe it
to him to give him the help he needs to enable him to keep working and succeeding the way he has for us.
Contrary to what the conservatives want us to think, President Obama has been very successful during the first
half of his presidency. Try and name another president who accomplished what he told us he would accomplish
when he was campaigning for our vote. (See attached list of accomplishments of Obama Administration)
If we don't send him the support personnel he needs we will spend the next 2 years with our mouths hanging
open gasping for air..."oh I didn't know it was that important...I should have voted!"
President Obama campaigned on "Yes We Can" and here in Florida we all caught the fire and agreed "Yes We
Can"! Nowhere did the president say "Yes I Can" and WE must continue to work WITH the president so that he
can continue to move the progressive agenda which will benefit all of US.
Harry and Harriette Moore were ordinary people. Mr. Moore taught school in the segregated public school sys-
tem in Mims, Florida, eventually moving up to a Junior High Principal and then a Senior High Principal, remain-
ing an educator until he was fired for his political activities in 1946. The Moore's probably could not even dream
of the number of registered African American voters in Florida today, which is 1.6 million African American and
Caribbean voters.. .let's make this clear, not that just live in Florida, but are registered to vote... 1.6 MILLION...
and certainly they would not even think of Florida having Early Voting. Harry & Harriette Moore are the first
NAACP activist to be murdered and Harry Moore has been called the first 1950's era Civil Rights Martyr.
You know how we like to "study" history and you can rest assured the historians will look back at the 2010 elec-
tions and say what did WE as African Americans do to prevent a back slide from
2008 and a slap in the face to Harry and Harriette Moore for giving their lives in 1951.
a t a Yes we won in 2008.. .and we won BIG... Let's not be accused of Now Parking In
g T a We who live in Florida have no excuse as to why we won't vote. We actually have
to go out of our way not to vote. We can vote early, We can vote by mail, or we can
vote the traditional election day, November 2, 2010 and take five (5) people to the
polls with you!!!
We cannot continue to listen to people who don't have our best interest at heart, con-
servative talk radio, trying to use religion to pit us against each other.
We all live in the same house, unless you have a helicopter pad in your back yard or
a yacht docked nearby. You can't go anywhere without me and I'm too scared to go
anywhere without you.
Your Vote Is No Joke!!!

Chairman, FACE Alliance www.FACE.org
It's just that simple
Don't like Democrats or Obama? That's fine, but if you don't vote or vote for a
Republican, you'll see a decrease in the economic growth for the low and middle
class. It's just that simple.
Don't like Democrats or Obama? That's fine. Either don't vote or vote for a
Republican, and see women go back to unequal pay. It's just that simple.
In order for our jobs to be created and saved, in order for homes to be saved, in
order to keep Americans in good health, in order to keep citizens protected, in order
for our children to continue receiving an education, America must invest in itself,
just as companies and rich folks invest.
You may think progress is too slow, but if you don't vote, or vote Republican, you'll
see who really makes progress. It won't be you. It will be the corporations and the
richest two percent of Americans. It's just that simple.
It's just that simple. VOTE

We, at The Florida Star, would like to apologize to you Mr. Brown for omitting
this picture of you and former President Clinton in our last issue.
Alvin Brown, candidate for Mayor of Jacksonville, held a fundraising reception
in Jacksonville on October 19, 2010 to welcome former President Bill Clinton who
endorsed him to become the next leader of Jacksonville. The 'standing only' event
was held at the River Club.
Jacksonville, FL: The challenges ex-offenders face upon re-entry, the perpetua-
tion of a criminal class when incarceration is favored over rehabilitation in all cases
and the social ills realized by one-size-fits-all prosecutions are front and center issues
in Jacksonville's inner-city neighborhoods. Those were some of the hottest topics
discussed in detail during the 'Legal System' segment at the Third Northeast Florida
Accountability Forum (NO-FLAF) on Thursday October 21. Fourth Judicial Circuit
Public Defender Matt Shirk served on the panel for that segment along with staff
from the State Attorney Office, Jacksonville Area Legal Aid and the American Civil
"As a returning panelist to the series of Accountability Forums organized by
some of Jacksonville's leading neighborhood activists, I would like to thank both the
organizers and the attendees," said Mr. Shirk. "Nothing can give me a better under-
standing of what my constituents are thinking than to get out and engage in discus-
sion with them myself. There are very serious challenges facing people in our inner-
city, particularly in the criminal justice system, and I want to work together with all
interested parties to see where we can affect needed reforms."
The Forum was held Thursday evening at The Master's Touch Ministry on
Jacksonville's north side. It was the third such event held in conjunction with the
Sherwood Forest/Paradise Park Neighborhood Association (SFPPNA) and the
Coalition of Presidents of Community Associations. The issues discussed during the
event included a segment on General Elections/Ballot Amendments featuring
Supervisor of Elections Jerry Holland, Economic Development/Community Issues
featuring City Councilman Reginald Brown and the portion dedicated to the Legal
System. Moderators for the Forum were President/Founder Eunice Barnum (pic-
tured with Shirk) of SFPPNA and Mr. Michael Wells of the host church.
Azaria Health Food founder Patria Reeves, who also serves on the NO-FLAF orga-
nizational board catered a pre-event dinner.

"Now Gulf seafood is coming back on the menu, so come on down, we're open for business."
Co-owner, Restaurant des Families
Crown Point, LA
I grew up bussing tables at this restaurant. Last year, my wife, Brooke, and I bought it. We
were working hard to build a business, then the spill hit. BP said they would try to make
things right. But how was an energy company going to help our restaurant?
Keeping Businesses Open
We figured they would tell us to take a number and wait in line. Instead, they asked us if
we could serve food to the workers, engineers, scientists, and local residents they had
hired to cleanup the spill. It kept us busy round the clock. And we weren't the only ones.
They hired a lot of local businesses and kept a lot of people working. They have kept
businesses up and down the Gulf open and it's still making a difference.
Open for Business
BP asked us to share our story with you to keep you informed. Our restaurant's open six
days a week. Customers are filling our restaurant again and we think it's a good time to
come down to the Gulf Coast. And if we could make just one request, please think of us
when planning your next vacation. We're still here and while it's been tough, we are still
cooking. And we are just one of the hundreds of great places ready to welcome you when
you come down. So don't wait. We're looking forward to seeing you.

Restoring Gulf Communities
We can't undo this tragedy. But we can help people get back on their feet. We have been
working with impacted communities since day one.
Partnering with local governments and community organizations, my job is to listen to
people's needs and frustrations and find ways to help. We have 19 community centers and
teams in four states, listening and helping.
Restoring The Economy
BP is here in Gulf communities with shrimpers, fishermen, hotel and restaurant owners,
helping to make them whole.
More than 120,000 claim payments totaling over $375 million have already gone to people
affected by the spill. We have committed a $20 billion independent fund to pay all legitimate
claims, including lost incomes until people impacted can go back to work. And none of this
will be paid by taxpayers.
BP has also given grants of $87 million to the states to help tourism recover and bring people
back to the Gulf beaches.
Restoring The Environment
We're going to keep looking for oil and cleaning it up if we find it. Teams will remain in place for
as long as it takes to restore the Gulf Coast.
And we've dedicated $500 million to work with local and national scientific experts on the
impact of the spill and to restore environmental damage.
Thousands of BP employees have their roots in the Gulf. We support over 10,000 jobs in
the region and people here are our neighbors. We know we haven't always been perfect,
but we will be here until the oil is gone and the people and businesses are back to normal.
We will do everything we can to make this right.

ninal Defense Experts Discuss Wrongful Convictions
der Shirk organizes, moderates discussion for FCSL Alumni Day CLE session
Jacksonville, FL: Persons wrongfully convicted of crimes might
account for as many as 20,000 of the presently incarcerated
inmates in the American correctional system, and statistics show
that number could be even higher than the 1% of the current
prison population. The reason behind this injustice was the focus
g oof a two-hour panel discussion on Friday organized and moderat-
ed by Fourth Judicial Circuit Public Defender Matt Shirk for
Florida Coastal School of Law Alumni Day. The panelists for
Exploring Innocence; Discussion and Examination of Florida
Wrongful Convictions included experts in Florida criminal law; 2nd
Judicial Circuit Public Defender Nancy Daniels, Director Quentin
Till of the 4th Judicial Circuit PD Homicide Unit, FCSL Professor
Joanmarie Davoli and Jacksonville attorney Hank Coxe.
Background: A national effort began in 1992 called the
Innocence Project which would research the growing problem of
wrongful convictions across the country. Since then several states
have launched parallel efforts. Several well publicized incidents of
prisoners later found innocent have occurred in Florida and in 2010,
with legislative backing, The Innocence Commission was formed. The
23 member panel has begun thoroughly considering the contributing factors that result in wrongful convic-
tions and in time will make recommendations for necessary reforms. The Honorable Ms. Daniels and Mr.
Coxe who participated in the FCSL panel Friday also serve on The Innocence Commission.
"Criminal law practitioners are keenly interested in precedents set in cases that have resulted in a
wrongful conviction," said Mr. Shirk. "We organized the panel discussion on this issue because there have
been too many instances in Florida where juries have found the wrong person guilty. The experts who served
on our panel each have a wealth of knowledge and understanding of criminal law and continue to work
aggressively on legal cases where they can identify potential injustices and ultimately set new precedents."
Roughly 80 criminal law practitioners attended the panel discussion, many of whom are FCSL alums.
Among the many factors respecting wrongful convictions that were examined by the panel were; mistaken
identification, existence of DNA evidence and ineffective counsel. Other topics that arose included; the
Terrance Graham decision (barring juveniles from receiving life sentences), the death penalty and the impor-
tance of pro bono work. Attendees were treated to perspectives from the legal experts on innocence and a
variety of the tangential issues.
Notable quotes from members of the panel:
Public Defender Nancy Daniels discussing solutions to problems that repeatedly have lead to wrong-
ful convictions; "End blind administration of witness identification lineups, look at prosecutors' mistakes
and impose sanctions, regulate all testifying forensics experts, demand all confessions be recorded those
are some good first steps."
PA Hank Coxe stressed the importance of defense attorneys committing to their clients; "You just
have to make up your mind that if you're going to be in this business you have to do the best job that you
Discussion of Capital punishment prompted Assistant Public Defender and Homicide Unit Director
Quentin Till to say; "My biggest concern is counsel who doesn't have his heart in death penalty cases -
you've got to keep up with the law."
Professor Joanmarie Davoli, who previously served as a public defender in another state noted; "It feels good
not to be just another cog in a conviction machine."
