Investigative journalist Gary Moore has specialized in large-scale human rights incidents internationally. His career in Latin America began with a 10-month hike from the U.S. border to the Panama Canal. He has been called to testify before the Congressional Caucus on Human Rights, and, inside the United States, is acknowledged as the discoverer of the Rosewood atrocity in Florida, in which a remote community was destroyed by racial violence and its destruction became a secret. On another front he worked for the United Nations a year in the Balkans, in part as a special war crimes investigator for international judges. He has also worked in the New York Office of the United Nations High Commissioner of Human Rights, and received the William Allen White Award for excellence in regional magazine journalism, doing work of various types for Newsweek, The New York Times, The Washington Post Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, The Los Angeles Times, 60 Minutes, ABC News, National Public Radio, The Chicago Tribune Magazine, Chicago Magazine, Seattle Magazine, The Miami Herald, Columbia Journalism Review and others.
Moore has hiked through the troubled town of San Fernando in northeast Mexico, getting to know its people first-hand — though this was in a different era, before its presentday massacre secrets.
