GET THE DETAILS HERE!Jay -Z attended the Trayvon Martin Foundation’s 6th Annual Peace Walk And Talk In Miami Saturday morning to honor victims of gun violence, including Trayvon Martin who was shot in the back by white neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman walking back to his dads house, in February 2012.
He states “His name will sit alongside some of the greats whom (sic) lost their lives to push our culture forward, the Martin Luther Kings, the Gandhis,”
“That’s the intention that we set, that his name serves as a beacon of light and hope and push us in a better direction.” Jay-Z Said.
He was joined on stage by Trayvon Martin’s parents Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin. Trayvon Martin would have been 23 this month.
@Regranned from @tosco.e – “One day our descendants will think it incredible that we paid so much attention to things like the amount of melanin in our skin or the shape of our eyes or our gender instead of the unique identities of each of us as complex human beings.” —Franklin Thomas, activist, philanthropist, and former president of the Ford Foundation #TeamTrayvon #TrayvonMartinFoundation
