JAY-Z attended the sixth annual Peace Walk & Peace Talk in honor of Trayvon Martin in Miami Gardens on Saturday.
The Hip Hop mogul stood alongside Trayvon’s parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, as he addressed hundreds of supporters at the rally honoring the slain teen and others lost to gun violence.
JAY-Z addressed the crowd of supporters saying:
We want to make sure that we stand and support and never forget that Trayvon serves as a beacon of light to the people out here. So you guys will never have to go through the pain and hurt that these guys went through.
And his name will sit alongside the greats whom lost their lives to push our culture forward — the Martin Luther Kings, the Gandhis. That’s the intention that we set, that his name serves as a beacon of light and hope to push us in a better direction, so thank you guys for your support.
Thank you for being here.
JAY-Z partnered with the Weinstein Company to produce a movie and a 6-part documentary about Trayvon Martin, but the project is up in the air following the Harvey Weinstein scandal.
Hopefully, the project will move forward.
