The parents of Trayvon Martin are shopping around a book about their slain son, according to sources that spoke with the New York Times.
Two publishing executives told the Times that Martin’s parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, met with publishers this week and intend to write a book detailing their experience since losing their son.
Martin is the unarmed teenager who was fatally shot in 2012 by George Zimmerman during a Florida neighborhood altercation. Zimmerman was later acquitted after claiming self defense.
According to the Times, “The book has the potential to attract major media attention, especially on cable television, which exhaustively covered the fatal shooting and subsequent trial.”
