Rest In Power: How Trayvon Martin Transformed A Nation

Email a Friend
On February 26th, 2012, 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was shot dead at a residential complex in Sanford, a small city north of Orlando, Florida. The following year, the man who shot Martin, George Zimmerman, was found not guilty of second-degree murder. Soon after, the Black Lives Matter movement formed, inspiring a new chapter in civil rights activism. At the center of it all were Trayvon's parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin. We check in with them about how they're doing five years after their son's death and ask about their new book, "Rest In Power," which pays loving tribute to Trayvon Martin.
