It's hard to believe that its been nearly 6 years since the death of Trayvon Martin in Florida. Rapper Jay-Z was in Florida this weekend to lend his support to a rally for the slain teenager.
Martin was 17 when he was shot and killed by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman after the two had a physical encounter.
Martin's killing set off a wave of racially charged protests around the nation. Zimmerman was later acquitted of all charges in the shooting.
Jay-Z joined Martin's parents onstage Saturday in Miami Gardens at the sixth annual Peace Walk & Peace Talk. The rally honors gun violence victims including Martin, who Jay-Z described as a beacon of light.
