jay-z honors trayvon martin peace walk & talk

It’s been six years since the world lost Trayvon Martin, who was killed at the hands of an evil, pathetic man that said he was dangerous. While that individual was found innocent on the charges, despite damming evidence against him, Trayvon’s name and memory has been kept alive by his family, friends and celebrities, and that will continue forever.

Over the weekend, Trayvon’s family hosted their annual “Peace Walk & Talk” event honoring their late son, and superstar hip-hop artist Jay-Z was in attendance, and even had a few powerful words to say to the crowd.

“We want to make sure we stand and support, and that we never forget that 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 hurt that they went through,” Hov says.

He adds, “His name will sit alongside the greats, whom lost their lives to push our cultures forward. The Martin Luther King’s, the Ghandi’s, and so on.” Quite the declaration, and a true one at that.

Watch Hov’s message below. RIP Trayvon.
