Nearly a year after Trayvon Martin was gunned down by self-proclaimed neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman, Jamie Foxx is keeping hope alive for justice and peace. The actor recently joined the slain teen’s parents on a peace walk that served to remember Trayvon and call for Zimmerman’s sentencing.
Foxx was especially passionate about the peace walk as he is a father of an 18-year-old. “I’m absolutely committed to all you out there who have young kids,” said the actor. “The thing is with press, and you know how press goes, it will be a hot story at one point. It will be the thing to go to and, all of a sudden, they try to forget about it. And I said I don’t want anybody to forget about this, because they can’t forget about the fact that they lost their son.”
Foxx has two daughters-Annalise,4, and Corinne,18. He was joined by Cedric the Entertainer in the quest for justice for Trayvon.
