LIE Links: Trayvon Martin Special Edition, Part 3

Democracy Now! has released a series of interviews reflecting on the Trayvon Martin case:

-Natalie Jackson, an attorney for Trayvon Martin’s family, discusses the witness testimonies and the statements of George Zimmerman’s family. “Clearly, they are trying to protect their family member,” Jackson says of interviews Zimmerman’s relatives have given to the media. “I guess they have a right to do that. But the problem is, they don’t have a right to destroy Trayvon’s memory in the process.”

-Cynthia Dagnal-Myron, a writer who was taught by the mother of the civil rights martyr Emmett Till, talks about her reaction to Trayvon’s case and her recent article for, “For Trayvon and Emmett: My ‘Walking While Black’ stories.”

-Alice Walker, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author, poet and activist talks about the death of Trayvon Martin and how killing is a symptom of unaddressed racism. “[Trayvon Martin] was ours,” she says. “And I don’t just mean black people, but all of ours. These children are our future and they have to be protected.”
