Trayvon Martin, an unarmed 17-year-old student wearing a hoodie and carrying only Skittles and iced tea, was fatally shot while walking toward his family home in Sanford, Florida. His shooter, George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer, stated to a 911 operator that the teenager looked suspicious, followed Trayvon on foot through the neighborhood, then claimed self-defense to police, and has not been charged in the case. The death of Trayvon Martin has sparked a national debate. Join Professors Coleman, Hu, Buell, and Beale in a panel discussion of the legal questions surrounding his death. Sponsored by the Black Law Students Association (BLSA) and the Program in Public Law.
