Howard University Fights to Keep Trayvon Martin’s Memory Alive

A Florida jury has had its say on the devastating confrontation between armed, self-styled watchman George Zimmerman and the late Trayvon Martin. Now attendees at Howard University’s College of Medicine are firing back.

The perception-challenging pic is just the latest political statement from the historically black bastion of higher learning.

Howard students were also featured in this provocative video, released a month after Martin was killed in Sanford, Fla.

Rep. Luis V. Gutierrez, D-Ill., is also grappling with how to move forward in a world where Zimmerman has been cleared of any wrongdoing.  He’s urging Judiciary Chairman Robert W. Goodlatte, R-Va., to let Congress investigate the matter further.
