Celebrities wearing hoodies for Trayvon Martin
As we prepare for the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial, we’re taking a look back at a number of celebrities who donned hoodies as a call for justice for Trayvon Martin.
Hoodies have become symbolic in the investigation of the unarmed boy’s death because the 17-year-old was wearing one when George Zimmerman found him “suspicious” and killed him in a Sanford, Fla., neighborhood.
Since then, social networks have been bombarded with pictures and trending topics calling for #JusticeForTrayvon and asking people to wear hoodies in his memory with the hastag #HoodiesForTrayvon or #MillionHoodies.
Entertainers, athletes and even members of Congress have all joined in the so-called million hoodies march.
