We reflect upon the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the killing of Trayvon Martin, a verdict which was handed down a year ago this week. With: Edward Wyckoff Williams, Contributing Editor at The Root and Political Contributor and Special Correspondent with AlJazeera America; and Dr. Raymond Winbush, Director of the Institute for Urban Research at Morgan State University.
We begin our week with a national news roundtable on the Michael Dunn verdict and more, with Dr. Tara Bynum, assistant professor in the Department of English at Towson University; Imara Jones, economic justice contributor to Colorlines; and Marta Mossburg, Visiting Fellow at the Maryland Public Policy Institute and syndicated columnist.
We speak with Ben Crump, attorney representing Trayvon Martin’s family, and Edward Wyckoff Williams, contributing editor to The Root, about the trial of George Zimmerman. A jury has finally been selected, and we discuss the larger implications of the outcome of this trial.
