The Death of Trayvon Martin (1995-2012)

Trayvon Martin

Below, we share responses from our HBW community and special links for information.

We believe that this is an opportunity to deepen our understanding of the complex society in which we live and to open our eyes clearly in order to see our national problems, but most importantly, an opportunity to demonstrate the important connection between our intellectual work and social practice.

We welcome your thoughtful comments, suggestions and reports of actions on the HBW blog and twitter site.
