One Year Anniversary of Trayvon Martin’s Death

As we approach the end of Black History Month, I again ask that we not only reflect on our community’s progress, but on our continued pursuit of justice and equality.
As a poetic activist, I have been able to use my voice to elevate African American issues of concern. The story of Trayvon Martin — the racial profiling, his senseless death, and the need for justice to prevail — is one that I have devoted a substantial amount of time to.
Today, on the one year anniversary of Trayvon Martin’s death, I am sharing I AmTrayvon Martin as the third in my series of Black History Month pieces. I hope that this poem moves you to do your part to bring a just resolution to this matter. Whether it is contributing to the Justice for Trayvon Martin Foundation or organizing a community talk on racial profiling, you can do something.
I present to you I Am Trayvon Martin.
