Ebony Magazine

The September edition of Ebony magazine features 4 different covers each with the headline: We Are Trayvon. The first cover features Martin’s family–Sybrina Fulton, Tracy Martin and their son Jahvaris Fulton. Three others versions feature prominent AA men and their sons wearing a grey hoodie: director Spike Lee and his son, Miami Heat player Dwyane Wade with his sons, and actor Boris Kodjoe and his son.

Yes, there are people who were making snarky comments in the press and there was a false story floated that Tea Party members were going to boycott the issue. *A false story people*. But I dont care about that.None of this is about that.

I just wanted to post this because of the power of the image. I have a beautiful nephew who is only a few years younger than Trayvon Martin.

And he owns a hoodie.

Poorly executed article.

Those are beautiful. I've been loving the photography in Ebony for the past few years.
