Ebony Magazine: Trayvon Martin September Issue

My deepest condolences go out to the Martin family following the loss of their precious teenage son Travyon, and the outrageous recent verdict surrounding the Zimmerman case. If there's any justice and equality in this world, there should be a re-trial. It's deeply saddening that someone so innocent should lose his life and be victimized at such a young age. It absolutely breaks my heart as a Mother.
In honour of Trayvon Martin, Ebony Magazine have dedicated four separate covers for their September issue, to the ‘We Are All Trayvon’ movement. The main cover features Trayvon’s family Father Tracy Martin, Mother Sybrina Fulton, and brother Jahvaris Fulton. Celebrity Fathers: Dwyane Wade, Boris Kodjoe, and Spike Lee also appear in grey hoodies with their sons to pay respects and show their support to a highly worthy cause.
'Our groundbreaking September 2013 issue will explore concerns around racial bias, how to find solutions for those concerns and how to heal and move forward.' - Bishop T.D. Jakes.
