Trayvon Martin’s Parents Lead Martin Luther King Annual Candle Light Memorial in Miami

Martin Luther King Jr. and others fought, bled and died for the very rights for which the parents of Trayvon Martin — and much of the nation — seek at this very moment: truth and timely justice.

Trayvon’s parents, Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton, along with attorney Benjamin Crump will attend the “March for Justice and & the Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Candlelight Memorial Service” to commemorate the 44th anniversary of the day King was assassinated in Memphis, Tenn., from a sharpshooter at the Lorraine Hotel.

The march and candlelight vigil will focus on seeking justice for Trayvon Martin who was killed at close range by self-appointed neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman on the night of the NBA All-Star Game in Sanford, Fla.

The evening will double as an opportunity to “Reclaim the Dream and Revitalize MLK Boulevard,” and will feature performances by Vickie Wynans and James Fortune & Fiya.
