Paramount Network has slotted July 30 at 10 PM for the premiere of Rest In Power: The Trayvon Martin Story. The network also unveiled the full trailer for the six-part original docuseries, which recounts the life and legacy of Trayvon Martin, whose 2012 shooting death polarized the nation and gave rise to the #BlackLivesMatter movement.
Trayvon Martin was an unarmed 17-year-old African American high school student shot and killed by a neighborhood watch member in the Sanford, Florida community on February 26, 2012 where he was visiting a friend with his father. George Zimmerman was acquitted of a second-degree murder charge utilizing Floridas Stand Your Ground Law, claiming he shot Martin in self-defense.
The fatal encounter between Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman and the subsequent trial sparked nationwide outrage and protests and shined an unforgiving light on issues including race, politics, power, money and, gun control.
Interviews combined with home videos, family photos, and news footage provide an intimate look at the story of a young life tragically cut short and that spurred a movement giving rise to a rallying cry that still resonates today, #BlackLivesMatter.
Featured in the docuseries are Trayvon Martins parents Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin; Martin family lawyer Donald Crump, Angela Rye, Reverend Al Sharpton, Angela Davis and Carmelo Anthony, among others.
Rest in Power: The Trayvon Martin Story also addresses the significant cultural and societal issues surrounding the tragedy as well as an in-depth examination into the investigation, trial, and the not-guilty verdict.
A six-part series on a run-of-the-mill thug?!
Oh boy, I can’t wait. /sarcasm
No doubts it will be garbage.
I canceled my Netflix a couple months ago over their leftist/obama crap.
I doubt they cared or noticed.

Angela Davis?! And Carmelo Anthony?! Is this a satire?
Somehow, I’ve a hunch they’ll neglect to show Martin bashing Zimmerman’s head into the ground before Zimmerman kills him in self-defense.
Hmmm. Maybe someone should have thought this through and handed it off to NOTflix and let his pseudo dad write the riveting tale. I only know of one thing the Oxxxx’s are full of and it ain’t talent.
Thank you. No.
I wonder if they will use this image of Saint Traytray, which seems to periodically disappear from the internet for some reason that I cannot fathom, because that is definitely him.
OH MY LORD.
Here we go. Round #387,521 of lionizing this thug.
Ooh-ooh, can I audition to be the white Hispanic?
Thanks, Hollywood! This should add some gasoline to the fire of an already hot and out of control Summer Rioting Season!
It’s almost as if it were designed to do this. Go figure.
IF I was George Zimmerman, I’d make sure to hire the best damn defamation lawyers in the country
Moral of the story:
If you attack an armed man and make him believe you will kill him, expect to get shot.

Hopefully Kit-Kat can get their candy bars in on this.
After all, they were stupid enough to do a commercial with the crude, dope-smoking Chance the Rapper.
I was never a big Kit Kat fan but I avoid them most of the time now, unless they were free. Pretty much the same way I feel about Target.
Out of all the people out there to have fake outrage over, they always choose the worst of the worst.
They are going show him going to school to get his aeronautical science degree, while the zimmerman wearing a KKK hood, murders him in the classroom.
He’s still dead...dead, dead, dead...
But the ability to make money and gather power from him lives on!!
