New York City Peacefully Rallies For Trayvon Martin (PICS/VIDEO)

(AllHipHop News) Yesterday (July 14th), New York City mobilized and peacefully protested the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the murder of Trayvon Martin.

Led by founder of non-profit organization Kevin Powell, Union Square’s normal hectic foot traffic intensified. The protests centered around the theme of “no protest without a purpose” as Powell professed.

City Council Member Jumaanee Williams, donning an all black hoodie in 88 degree temperature gave a riveting speech on the fallacy of a “post racial nation”:

Ann Tripp and Bob Slade from WBLS were a few of the many speakers at the protest to share their thoughts with Bob Slade urging for “constant indignation.”

Kevin Powell and the BK Nation can be contacted at and 718-399-8149.
