Trayvon Martin’s parents releasing book on son, Zimmerman and more


Trayvon Martin’s parents are reportedly planning to release a book about their son, his death, his shooter’s trial and more.

Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin met with publishing executives to discuss a book chronicling their journey since Trayvon’s death in February 2012, the New York Times reports.

One executive suggested that faith could be a central element in the book, a fact that isn’t too surprising considering both Fulton and Martin’s candid discussions about their spirituality throughout the case.

After a jury acquitted their son’s killer, George Zimmerman, in July, Fulton tweeted biblical verses and said she was leaning on God to help her through the challenging time:

Lord during my darkest hour I lean on you. You are all that I have. At the end of the day, GOD is still in control. Thank you all for your prayers and support. I will love you forever Trayvon!!! In the name of Jesus!!!

Information about the release date has yet to be announced. Both Martin and Fulton said they intend to use the book to give greater perspective of their son’s life and their own struggle.
