“No weapon formed against you shall prosper,” Jamie Foxx sang through a megaphone to the parents of slain, unarmed teen Trayvon Martin last night (Feb 26). Them, along with a large crowd of supporters and press gathered in New York City’s Union Square on the anniversary of the teens death for a vigil at 7:17 pm, the same time Martin was fatally shot by George Zimmerman while returning home from purchasing goodies at a local convenience store. "We want to let you know that we love you and we're not going to leave you," Foxx said before putting the same sentiments into song.
Hoodies were worn in remembrance and symbolism, as the 17-year-old was wearing the article of clothing at the time of his death.
Zimmerman claimed self-defense, but the case is scheduled to go to trial on June 10.
