ICYMI, I sit down with Cassius Clay to discuss the first episode of Rest In Peace: The Trayvon Martin Story. This emotional episode will take you through an account of everything that happened leading up to the night of the shooting of Trayvon Martin, whose death sparked the Black Lives Matter movement, and the impact of this tragedy in our nation.
It will have you on the edge of your seat as they replay the 911 call from that night and on the verge of tears (more like uncontrollable sobbing) as you hear from his mother and father discuss losing their child due to such a unjust and unexpected manner.
Although this story is one that is unfair and heartbreaking to say the least, I think it's a great thing that his family continues to fight for Trayvon Martin's story to be heard and to fight racial injustice that continues in our country.
This MUST SEE episode is 1 of 6 parts of the docu-series premiering on BET every Monday 9pm central. Make sure to tune in next week and keep the discussion of this young man's story alive!
