Trayvon Benjamin Martin, a 17-year-old African American from Miami, Florida was shot and killed.
The murder of Trayvon and the injustice that followed inspired a social movement – #BlackLivesMatter.
Trayvon Martin lived in a neighbourhood which was plagued by robberies.
George Zimmerman, a volunteer for community watch killed Trayvon Martin.
Zimmerman was not charged for murder until national media of the U.S covered it.
However, later a jury acquitted Zimmerman for second-degree murder and manslaughter.
The outrage over the death and judgement culminated in a social movement called #BlackLivesMatter.
Are African Americans being discriminated and subjected to injustice?
