In February 2012, Trayvon Martin was shot and killed in Sanford, Fl. by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, who was acquitted last month. At the time of his death, Martin was wearing a hoodie, one of the reason prosecutors said the 17-year-old was possibly profiled.
In response to the “not-guilty” verdict in the trial, magazine has devoted not one but four separate September 2013 cover issues to which features three celebrity black fathers with their sons wearing gray hoodies and the fourth cover dedicated to Trayvon’s family.
According to the site, the magazine’s groundbreaking September 2013 issue will explore concerns around racial bias, how to find solutions for those concerns and how to heal and move forward. The four covers include: Trayvon’s parents, his mother Sybrina Fulton, father Tracy Martin and his brother, ; and his son, Jackson; and his sons Zaire and Zion; and with his son Nicolas.
