The September issue of Ebony Magazine will be dedicated to Trayvon Martin with four different covers in his honor. One cover features NBA star Dwyane Wade and his two sons, all wearing grey Hoodies in respect to Trayvon. “We Are Trayvon” is read in bold red print. I applaud Ebony Magazine for this fantastic feature, not allowing the tragedy of Trayvon Martin go until justice is served. The issue will feature a exclusive interview with Trayvon Martin’s parents, and a piece with Dwyane Wade on the topic of racism. I will definitely be picking-up this issue, how about you?
“As a mother of a young Black boy, the tragedy of Travyon Martin affected me deeply. We simply cannot allow the conversations on this issue to come to a standstill. As the leading source for an authoritative perspective on the African-American community, at EBONY we are committed to serving as a hub for Black America to explore solutions, and to giving readers the information and tools they need to help ensure a bright future for all of our children.” – EBONY’s Editor-in-Chief Amy Barnett
