Protesting isn’t the only way to show support for Trayvon Benjamin Martin.
Joya Powell and her friends from the Movement of the People Dance Company have another way to highlight the injustices brought against the slain teenager: performance.
Watch the video above to see Powell, Caryn Cooper, Trina Hines, Ju Yeun Lee, Alexandra Pinel and Candace Tabbs perform a beautiful interpretation of the incident, mixed with President Obama’s first commentary on Trayvon.
First performed in the summer of 2012, the dance troupe has continued to take their act on the road to inspire, encourage, and inform those about Trayvon Martin’s shooting…and the action we need to take to prevent it from happening again.
