Nearly six years after the passing of the late Trayvon Martin, Jay Z rallied at the Trayvon Martin Peace Walk and Peace Talk event honoring the life of Martin.
Over the weekend, in Miami Gardens, Florida, the hip-hop mogul joined Martin’s family, mother Sybrina Fulton and father Tracy Martin, to support the life and justice of the slain teenager.
Speaking during the event, Jay Z spoke about the importance of continuing Martin’s legacy saying:
We want to make sure we stand in support and we never forget, and Trayvon serves as a beacon of light to all the people out here, so you guys will never have to go through the pain and the hurt that these guys went through.
It’s been reported that HOV would be making a film and docu series based on Martin’s life and impact but no further details of production have been revealed.
