Our community organizer Tarik Ross is at this conference, Black Male: Re-Imagined pt. 2 being put on by Perception.Org. There are several panels that have been going on throughout the day being streamed live on the internet. Star Jones spoke with Trayvon Martin’s mother about the incident, the public reaction and more. We’ve had our eye on the Trayvon Martin incident and surround backlash, court case, etc. for some time and we felt this was an important conversation going on this evening and wanted to share the stream with our readers. Hit the jump to watch.
One year after the tragic killing of Trayvon Martin and one month after his 18th birthday, Sybrina Fulton, Trayvon’s mother, will reflect on the circumstances surrounding the death of her son and the role that perception played in the public analysis and conversation that ensued. She will also reflect on the ongoing work of the Justice for Trayvon Martin Foundation and its partners to reduce racial profiling.
