Jay Z to Produce a Full-Length Film and Docuseries About Trayvon Martin
On the heels of a six-part series on the life of Kalief Browder, Jay Z will partner with the Weinstein Company again to tell the stories of Trayvon Martin on the big and small screens.
Jay Z announced plans to produce a documentary series and full-length movie based on two books Suspicion Nation: The Inside Story of the Trayvon Martin Injustice and Why We Continue to Repeat It by journalist Lisa Bloom who covered the trial against Martin’s killer, George Zimmerman, and Rest in Power: The Enduring Life of Trayvon Martin, which covers Martin’s life and the aftermath of his death by Martin’s parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin.
No details have been released on when the projects will begin and be released.
Martin’s killing and Zimmerman’s subsequent acquittal brought about the Black Lives Matter movement.
