Trayvon is our history lest we forget. For yesterday and today’s black history…


Trayvon Martin
Trayvon Martin

Trayvon Martin‘s birthday was yesterday.
he would have been 19.
as someone who didn’t know him personally,
there would have been no reason to acknowledge this if he was alive.
no large size posters of his image.
no hoodies in solidarity.
probably would not have been a public birthday celebration, just he and his loved ones hanging out, blowing out candles.

eating skittles.

i forgot. did you remember?
will we?
