In the 30th annual Celebration of the Life and Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the University of Utah is holding public discussions. This year’s theme is “Beneath the Hoodie: A Look at Racial Profiling in America.”
On Jan. 21, Jennifer Napier-Pearce of the Salt Lake Tribune will lead a panel discussion at the university about the damaging effects of racial profiling and how to combat it. Sybrina Fulton will kick off that discussion.
Sybrina Fulton is the mother of Trayvon Martin who, on February 26, 2012, was profiled, followed, and killed by George Zimmerman. In July 2013, a jury of 6 women found Zimmerman not guilty of 2nd degree murder neither manslaughter.
The best to Sybrina Fulton in her work as an advocate.
