First black joins NC’s Sons of American Revolution

Monday, February 20th, 2012

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — A chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution in North Carolina is inducting its first black member, a firefighter who only recently learned his ancestor was freed from slavery after fighting for American independence.

Thirty-year-old Chaz Moore is a descendant of Toby Gilmore, the son of a chieftain in coastal West Africa who was kidnapped at the age of 16 and sold into slavery in Massachusetts. He gained his freedom by joining the fight for what would become the United States.

On Saturday, Moore will become the first black person inducted into the North Carolina chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution in a ceremony at the state Museum of History.

Moore says he’s amazed that Gilmore fought for the freedom of the country that enslaved him.
