Trayvon Martin’s Parents Planning Book About Son, George Zimmerman Trial


/ December 16, 2013

The parents of slain Florida teen Trayvon Martin are planning to pen a about their son.

The New York Times reports that Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin are meeting with publishing houses to discuss a book that would delve into their personal experience during the highly publicized George Zimmerman trial as well as give “the full picture of their son.”

Executives that met with the two parents described the experience “somber and moving.” Fulton was said to have spoken about social issues of race and religion, possibly posing faith as a central element in the book.

Trayvon was shot dead back in February by Zimmerman, who was working as a night watch volunteer. A jury of six women, including five mothers, found him not guilty this past summer.
