JAY-Z spoke at the Trayvon Martin Foundation’s sixth annual Peace Walk and Talk in Miami earlier today.
“His name will sit alongside some of the greats whom (sic) lost their life to push our culture forward, the Martin Luther Kings, the Gandhis,” JAY said.
“That’s the intention that we set, that his name serves as a beacon of light and hope and push us in a better direction.” Watch his full speech below. JAY’s producing a film and documentary series about Martin.
JAY recently appeared on CNN’s new series, “The Van Jones Show,” where he opened up about the justice system and the NFL—issues he’s been vocal about in recent months.
Last year, JAY spoke out against Meek Mill’s “unjust” prison sentence and the NFL’s treatment of Colin Kaepernick.
