Remember Trayvon Martin: Dr. King Sunday, Rev. Kent Matthies

It was less than one year ago when 17 year old Trayvon Martin was tragically and fatally shot dead.  This violence happened within a landscape author Michelle Alexander has prophetically labeled “The New Jim Crow”.  We have a raging
prison-industrial complex, public school systems like ours in Philadelphia gasping for breath, and a multitude of other policy challenges for disenfranchised folks.  Within this context how do we say “No more Jim Crow, Remember Trayvon Martin, Remember Dr. King!”
