In 2017, Jay-Z had announced that he would be producing and filming a documentary series focusing on the life of 17 year old teenager Trayvon Martin. Martin was shot and killed in Sanford, Florida by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmermann. His murder sparked uproarious protests and caused even more controversy when Zimmermann was not convicted of the crime.
The docu-series will feature interviews with family members, organizers, and archival footage from protest rallies and marches for Trayvon. “Rest In Power,” will air on BET, July 30th.
