Tributes to prominent lawyer, political activist Colin Moore


Civil rights activist the Rev. Al Sharpton Friday night joined the Caribbean community in New York in paying glowing tributes to prominent Guyanese-born attorney and political activist Colin Moore who died on Jan. 9. He was 80.

“Colin didn’t care about factions, If it was right, Colin was there,” said Rev. Sharpton, an internationally-renowned civil rights leader, founder and president of the Harlem-based National Action Network (NAN), which has more than 100 chapters across America, in eulogizing Moore at First Baptist Church on Eastern Parkway, near Rodgers Avenue, in Brooklyn.
