It is almost a month that the not guilty verdict was read in a Florida court room exonerating George Zimmerman for the murder of Trayvon Martin. As many discussions, debates, feelings, and opinions have been shared, the movement still continues. The September issue of EBONY is dedicated to Trayvon Martin and features four powerful covers starring Boris Kodjoe, Dwyane Wade, Spike Lee and their sons and Trayvon Martin’s family.
EBONY’s Editor-in-Chief Amy Barnett spoke about the issue saying,
“As a mother of a young Black boy, the tragedy of Travyon Martin affected me deeply. We simply cannot allow the conversations on this issue to come to a standstill. As the leading source for an authoritative perspective on the African-American community, at EBONY we are committed to serving as a hub for Black America to explore solutions, and to giving readers the information and tools they need to help ensure a bright future for all of our children.”
