Miami road to be named after Trayvon Martin

A Miami street will be named after Trayvon Martin, the teenager whose shooting death sparked the Black Lives Matter movement.. A portion of the street leading to Martin’s former school, Dr. Michael M. Krop Senior High, will be renamed in his honor, the Miami Herald reports.

Martin was in 11th grade unarmed and walking back from a convenience store with candy when he was fatally shot by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in Sanford, Florida. Zimmerman was acquitted under Florida’s controversial self-defense law. The Black Lives Matter movement emerged after a Florida jury decided to clear Zimmerman in the shooting death in July 2013.
