Trayvon Martin (1995-2012) was murdered five years ago on this day, February 26th. He was seventeen years old.

This print by Ricardo Levins Morales features a poignant quote from civil rights organizer Ella Baker –
“Until the killing of black men, black mother’s sons, becomes as important to the rest of the country as the killing of a white mother’s son, we who believe in freedom cannot rest until this happens.”
