Founder

Robbie Susan Moore

 September 28, 1942 – July 26, 2008

Co-Founder and Third President 

Robbie Susan Moore was a co-founder of the United Ebony Society of Gwinnett County which was created in 1984 several other concerned residents of Gwinnett.  Robbie served as president of the United Ebony Society for 24 years, until her death in 2008.

As President, Robbie was instrumental in getting all cities in Gwinnett County to recognize the third Monday in January as Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.  To bring the community together in celebration of Dr. King’s life, Robbie established and organized an annual march and program, which still takes place today in Lawrenceville.  The march includes government officials, community activists and volunteers, together with representatives and students from Gwinnett Public School System. Robbie was also the driving force behind The United Ebony Society hosting an annual Black History Display in the Gwinnett County Justice and Administration building during Black History Month each February

 

Robbie’s history of community involvement began in 1964, when she joined the University of Georgia Extension Service as a teacher's aide. She organized the Concerned Citizens Group to talk about issues in the community such as voter registration and education.  She was a member of the League of Women Voters of Gwinnett County and worked for many years as a deputy voter registrar.  Robbie was one of the first black poll managers in Gwinnett County.  In 1986, she became the president of the Lawrenceville Middle School PTA. She served as a Boy Scout troop leader and organized the Miss Black Gwinnett pageant for young black girls between the ages of 3 to 18 years old.

 

Robbie served on the boards of several organizations, including the United Way, the Gwinnett County Board of Education Human Relations Council, the Lawrenceville Housing Authority, the Advisory Board of Gwinnett County Schools, the Executive Board of the Gwinnett chapter of the NAACP, and the Poplar Hill Church Scholarship Program.

 

Robbie was the recipient of numerous awards in recognition of her service.

 

To honor the memory of Robbie Susan Moore, a new Gwinnett County middle school, named Moore Middle School, opened in August 2011.  The school is located in Lawrenceville where so much of Robbie’s community activism took place.
