Ebony Magazine Dedicates September Issue to Trayvon Martin w/ Four Covers
Ebony Magazine is dedicating their September issue to Trayvon Martin.
The magazine will feature four covers honoring the memory of Trayvon Martin. Three covers feature celebrity dads Spike Lee, Dwanye Wade, and Boris Kodjoe posing with their sons in hoodies.
The final cover is the parents of Trayvon Martin, and Trayvon’s younger brother Jahvaris.
According to the magazine this “groundbreaking” issue will “explore concerns around racial bias, how to find solutions for those concerns and how to heal and move forward.”
The editors of Ebony say the September issue was inspired by “the watershed moment experienced by the Black community after the ‘not-guilty’ verdict in the George Zimmerman trial,” and the magazine “devoted four separate September 2013 cover issues to Trayvon Martin and explores the ‘Stand Your Ground’ laws.”
