The sixth annual “Peace Walk & Peace Talk” by the Trayvon Martin Foundation took place at the Betty T. Ferguson Amphitheater in Miami Gardens, Florida, on Saturday afternoon (Feb. 10). One of the many attendees was JAY-Z, who has been a major supporter of Trayvon Martin’s family after his unlawful murder in 2012. Standing on stage alongside Trayvon’s parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, the Roc Nation mogul delivered a speech to the hundreds of people who came in support to march.

We want to make sure that we stand and support and never forget that Trayvon serves as a beacon of light to the people out here. So you guys never have to go through the pain and hurt that these guys went through,” said JAY-Z. “His name will sit alongside the greats whom lost their lives to push our culture forward—the Martin Luther Kings, the Gandhis. That’s the intention we set so his name will serve as a beacon of light and hope to push our culture forward in a better direction.” The rap mogul is the executive producer of an upcoming feature-length narrative film and a six-part television docuseries on Trayvon Martin’s life and the events surrounding his senseless murder on February 26, 2012. JAY-Z will serve as executive producer on the upcoming docu-series, Rest in Power: The Enduring Life of Trayvon Martin.

Rally 4 Meek

In light of Meek Mill’s recent sentencing to prison after violating probation, a rally was held outside the Criminal Justice Center in Philadelphia to protest the ruling and showcase how important the Dreamchasers’ CEO is to the community.
