Theodore R. Gibson, Civil Rights Leader

(1915–1981)

Father Theodore R. Gibson was an Episcopal Canon and an active member in the black community of Miami. Gibson served on the Miami city commission from 1972 to 1981. As a leader of the civil rights movement, he participated in many events; for example, in 1945 he helped stage a "wade-in” at whites-only Haulover Beach. As president of the Miami chapter of the NAACP, he served a prison sentence in 1960 for refusing to reveal their membership, charges that were reversed by the Supreme Court in 1963.
