Trayvon Martin: Do We Look Suspicious? | Panel Discussion

Creative Media & Marketing in collaboration with VSU NAACP will be hosting "TRAYVON MARTIN: Do We Look Suspicious?" Panel Discussion on Thursday, April 19th at 7pm in the Student Union Theater. The tragic event that happened in Sanford, FL back in February has left our nation and young people confused and enraged about what happened to Trayvon Martin. Dozens of students on this very campus have reached out to our organizations seeking that we cover this issue on campus and we want to make sure that we do that and have a educational conversation that goes beyond Trayvon Martin. The goal of this panel discussion is to cover human rights, racial profiling, criminal justice, and gun laws. We believe this event will shed light on the facts and what we can take from this tragic event. The panel will consist of professors and students from the History, Sociology/Anthropology and Criminal Justice departments.
