THE MARTINS, BORIS KODJOE, DWYANE WADE, SPIKE LEE, AND THEIR SONS COVER EBONY MAGAZINE ‘FOR TRAYVON’
The memory of Trayvon Martin lives on through family members and celebrities. Ebony magazine recently decided to dedicate their entire September issue to the Martin family, and had a bit of help with their cover from Hollywood and Florida greats.
Dwyane Wade was one of many celebs to participate in a photo shoot with his sons for the upcoming issue which calls for a change in America. Boris Kodjoe and Spike Lee are also featured on the magazine’s cover with their sons, promoting the concept of unity nationwide.
In addition to taking a few pictures with his wife and a family member for the cover of Ebony, Tracy Martin talked with the magazine about his son. “One of the biggest points I made is the fact that we need to let the world know who Trayvon really was,” said Martin. “I don’t want this verdict to dictate his character. I wanted to start the conversation on what do we do in moving forward.”
Trayvon Martin was fatally shot by George Zimmerman on February 26, 2012 while en route to a family friend’s house. He was 17-years-old.
