Rest in Power: The Enduring Life of Trayvon Martin - Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin

Staff Pick

Five years ago, 16-year-old Trayvon Martin was shot and killed walking one evening in an Orlando suburb after picking up a soft drink and some Skittles at a 7-11. His death made him a household name, and his gray hoodie became an emblem of black men unfairly targeted on America’s streets. Rest in Power, a candid and inspiring new book by his parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, is a first-person narrative about how one mother and one father channeled grief over their son’s death into a national, non-violent social justice movement. If you think you know the whole story of Trayvon Martin, you probably don’t. That’s why you should read this excellent book.
