Trayvon Martin’s death which sparked nationwide outrage in 2012 after the acquittal of his shooter has not been forgotten. It has inspired Black Lives Matter movement and many creative activists: writers, painters and singers.
Now Jay Z has joined the crowd. The famous rapper decided to produce a six-part miniseries telling about Trayvon’s life before and after he was killed by George Zimmerman.
To realize his Jay Z has teamed up with Weinstein Company. No details concerning the starting date for the project have been yet released.
