Jay-Z Releases The Trayvon Martin Story Trailer [VIDEO]
This year marks the sixth anniversary of Trayvon Martin‘s untimely death, Paramount Pictures released the trailer for the upcoming docu-sereis, Rest In Power: The Trayvon Martin Story.
The project was made in conjunction with executive producers, Shawn “Jay Z” Carter and Martin’s parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin.
Rest in Power: The Trayvon Martin Story will deal with more than just the tragic murder, but will also tell the surrounding story of the roles race, politics, power, money and the American criminal justice system played. The six part docuseries is based on the book Martin’s parents co-wrote: Rest in Power: The Enduring Life of Trayvon Martin.
The Trayvon Martin murder was a definitive moment in American History, the killing of an unarmed kid, really opened a lot of people's eyes to modern day racism. It is honorable that Jay-Z took on to producing this project. I'm excited to see what angle they take on this tragedy. Let me know what you think about the trailer ?
