Trayvon Martin’s tragic death sparked outrage in this country. That outrage led to marches and protests, speeches and pontificating. Now that his killer is set to go to trial, what happens next? How do we stop a similar injustice from occurring again? And why did it take the death of a teenager to get us all worked up to begin with?
How do we use the rage to fuel real change?
We’re beginning a series of programs where we’ll talk about that very issue. Tonight we’ll get an update on the Trayvon Martin case and hear about another seeming injustice… this time involving a grandfather, also in Florida, facing life in prison on what some call bogus charges. It wouldn’t be the first time. Can we make it the last?
