EBONY Magazine Sept 2013: Fear of a Black Planet

[FROM EBONY SEPT 2013 ISSUE] Fear. When the verdict of not guilty was read in the trial of George Zimmerman for the murder of unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Benjamin Martin, the Black community experienced a range of stomach-churning emotions. Parents sat down with their children and tried to explain the impossible. For this special installment of EBONY’s “Saving Our Sons” series, we reflect on the life and legacy of Trayvon Martin, a young man whose death is emblematic of the systemic profiling and persecution of Black men and boys by America’s legal system. source: https://www.ebony.com/news/race-culture/fear-of-a-black-planet/
