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 EbonyTracy 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.

  1. YESSSS!!!!! I will be purchasing. Kudos to Ebony for keeping this issue (profiling of black males, double standards in the “Stand your Ground” law) in the spotlight….would be nice if they gave some of the funds toward the civil case. As heartbreaking as this is, Trayvon did not die in vain.

  2. The covers are all beautiful, I’m just not into the business of “using someone’s pain to make money”.

    I sincerely hope that if anything negative about Trayvon comes out in the civil trial that these same celebrities won’t turn their backs on this family.

  3. I always wonder if Boris misses the life he left behind in Germany to become so staunchly African-American. You almost wouldn’t know that he was born and raised in Germany.
