On Sunday morning, July 14, 2013, a press conference was held in response to the “not guilty” verdict in the controversial George Zimmerman case. He was charged with the murder of an unarmed, seventeen-year-old, Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida, which occurred on Feb. 26, 2012. McKeldin Square in the Inner Harbor of Baltimore was the site of the press conference. Representatives from the Baltimore Peoples Power Assembly and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC Baltimore) shared their views on the case and their plans for “future protests.” Speaking on camera are The Rev. Cortly C.D. Witherspoon, Sharon Black, Lee Patterson, and Steven Ceci.
