Dick Gregory on Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman and parallels with Atlanta’s Missing and Murdered ChildrenAugust 21, 2017
Editor’s Note: This is a reprint of an exclusive interview with Dick Gregory during a protest march for Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida. The article is reprinted from Allvoices, March 2012.
Mounting evidence has begun to disprove the assertions of George Zimmerman in his version of what happened when he fired a handgun into the chest of Trayvon Martin. The shot mortally wounded Martin and speculation abounds over the reason why Zimmerman would shoot an unarmed black teenager.
