Trayvon Martin's Parents Are Planning A Book

Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, the mother and father of Trayvon Martin, the unarmed Black teen who was killed by self-appointed neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman last year, are meeting with publishers about writing a book about their son. Their book will give a full picture of their son in the wake of a trial that attempted to paint him as a thug who must have had it coming the night he was killed. (Zimmerman was acquitted of all charges in July and has been anything but an upstanding citizen since.) The meetings, which took place last week, were described as “somber and moving” by publishers who spoke to The New York Times. The book is expected to reveal the turmoil the couple experienced before, during and after the trial, and, according to one publishing executive who met with Martin and Fulton, likely touch on social issues of race and religion. Heartbreaking though the subject may be, I look forward to reading this book when it’s on shelves. [NYTimes]
