Jay-Z’s documentary is based on the book Rest in Power: The Enduring Life of Trayvon Martin, which was written by his parents after their child was infamously murdered by a neighbor. Martin’s death increased the national spotlight on the unnecessary deaths of young Black children in America.  Tanya Hart caught up with Trayvon’s parents, Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton, at the Essence Festival in New Orleans.
