IFWT_Trayvon_Martin_Three_Years

Trayvon Martin’s death was the new beginning of a topic that continues to loom over the heads of America. Racism and being a young black man in this country are the topics of conversation. It’s been three years since neighborhood watchman, George Zimmeraman shot and killed the 17-year-old who was walking home from the store with a can of iced tea and a bag of Skittles. IFWT remebers Trayvon Martin three years later.

Even more recently, the Department of Justice has decided to not file civil charges against Zimmerman, claiming there still wasn’t enough evidence. Martin’s mother, Sybrina Fulton speaks to the Associated Press on the DOJ’s decision. “It bothered me a great deal,” she began. She opens up about being hopeful that the government agency would have found something that could have served a form of justice. “The Department of Justice is the top of the line here, and that they would certainly, through their experts and professionals that something that the state missed that they would pick up on.”

IFWT_Tupac_Museum_Exhibit

The Tupac Shakur Exhibit is on display for the world to see; almost. The public’s eyes can touch down on All Eyez on Me: The Writings of Tupac Shakur, beginning April 22. However, some were allowed to view the precious artifacts of the late great west coast rapper, a little sooner. Pac’s mother, Afeni Shakur, his sister Sekyiwa Shakur and stepbrother Mopreme Shakur were among the audience members who viewed the Q&A panel session with YG, John Singleton, Chuck D, Cheo Coker and more well-known associates of the rapper.

Including ‘recollections and insights’ of Tupac, was the conversation of when Singleton would release the highly anticipated biopic on the skillful artist. “Tupac’s soul would come back and haunt my ass if it wasn’t done right,” he says on taking his time with the masterpiece. “His journey was so specific, but it affected billions of people.” True. Great work takes time. I can wait for this one.

“There’s no need for you to fear me, if you take your time to hear me, maybe you can learn to cheer me.” – Tupac Shakur
